Newt is a very clever fella and word is leaking out that “The Professor” is on the verge of running a new kind of campaign. It seems that his staff is resigning from his campaign as a group.
Some might view this as a bad sign for Newt’s Presidential ambitions, but not Newt. So this can only be viewed as a grand new strategy–an exciting new plan that Newt celebrated with a post on Facebook. TPM reported on his latest missive with the headline: “Newt: This is Great News for Newt!”.
I was enjoying Newt’s slow and steady implosion and I’m hoping to see it continue for a bit longer. I wanted to see him debate Backmann, Palin, Perry and Ryan when they jump in. Come on Newt–hang in there. Do. Not. Give. Up.
After all, he doesn’t need a staff to run the kind of campaign he’s running.
Still, if Newt is going to leave the GOP clown car it is nice to see him get pushed out with knives in his back. This kind of grifter on grifter violence is fun to watch.
Time to make some popcorn and have an Open Thread…
