Back in February, the Bus Just Needed a Tire... Now, It Looks Like Newt Gingrich's 'Bus' Has Run Out of Gas.
And the end and reality comes a bit closer for Newt Gingrich. Yesterday, Gingrich's campaign manager disclosed that their staff had to be cut by 1/3 in order to continue the campaign.. And the noose gets a little tighter.
Not that it's a big deal at this point.. Campaigns die long before they actually quit, and Newt is dead. Even Sheldon Adelson can be bankrupted by this campaign, and he appears to have reached the max on Newt's credit card limit. Not that it's really a big deal anyway.. Newt's goal is not to win, but to NOT let Mitt Romney win - perhaps the worst reason in the world to stay in ever. But many campaigns are campaigns of ideas, and ideas are cheap. Sometimes they catch fire, and then the money comes in. It happened to Rick Santorum, but Gingrich had more of a brief flame-up, before dying out pretty quickly. But, we did get the answer to the question of how many times can a souffle rise, politically, that is. The answer is twice - and that's all...
