Great news from The Donald
Bet you never thought you'd hear me say that, huh?
I started hearing last night that Donald Trump was about to make a major announcement, and speculation raged about whether he was going to finally set that mangy weasel on his head free or something to do with getting all the Republican candidates to go on Celebrity Apprentice to decide who's going to be the nominee, but the actual news is almost as good.
According to Political, Trump is endorsing Newt Gingrich!
Yes, just when you thought Gingrich's candidacy was dead another billionaire comes through to revive it. Or at least to keep it on life support until the convention.
Obviously a Gingrich presidency would be an unprecedented disaster, so like Robert Reich I wouldn't even want to risk him being the Republican nominee. On the other hand, an evil alliance of the two biggest fatheads in American politics (pace, Chris Christie; your time will come)to beat up on the inevitable nominee is too much fun to pass up.
