Every time I see this, I start singing the song in my head. Genius.
Gingrich is the latest guy to jump in the polls, but the question is how long will he last? Will he be able to resist the embarrassing soundbites and debate-night flubs that have done in other candidates? Perhaps. But Gingrich has already made some questionable remarks, most recently about child labor and how we should get rid of child labor laws. I don't doubt that Gingrich felt he was coming from a warm, fuzzy place in his heart of hearts, but he seems to have failed to notice the bigotry, discrimination, immorality, and general nastiness of his comments. Gingrich may well be able to save himself from himself, but the real question is whether he will be able to inspire super-conservative base-voters who want a genetic duplication of Reagan? Time will tell.
