Connor points today to his friend at PurpleScarf expressing dismay at the resurgence of Newt Gingrich. Now, it is astonishing that the fellow still bothers with politics at all, and in a sane world he'd have long ago been put out to pasture (or possibly, in a nice padded room). However, the unstated implication running through Yglesias' recent (hillarious) review of the Republican candidates is that, should Newt run, there's every chance he could unite the Christian Right and take the nomination. After all, they loved him at CPAC, where last week he proved to be just the toxic, creepy, conservative superstar you remembered.
And if that happens, we might even carry Texas.
