We thank all of the voters in South Carolina for performing their civic duty exactly as the GOP expected.
The GOP needed Gingrich to win the South Carolina Primary.
Why would the GOP derail it’s own golden boy? Why would the Republican elites front Newt in S.C. instead of Mitt?
To be sure Gingrich will be exposed in coming weeks as a candidate with more baggage than campaign funds. He is no more electable than Herman Cain,
Rick Perry or John Huntsman and likely will become a pariah to Republicans once his dirty laundry begins to get some air (time).
Why then you ask did Romney seemingly get betrayed in favor of Gingrich?
It’s simple – the GOP could not afford to give up the spotlight yet.
If Romney wins the South Carolina primary by the wide margin he had opened up prior to Gingrich’s “debate moments”, then Romney has a nearly
unstoppable path to the nomination. If the GOP nomination outcome becomes readily apparent then it ceases to gain media exposure. There ceases to be
debates. There ceases to be a villain to counter Romney as a “hero”. The GOP no longer has the stage.
Enter South Carolina.
The GOP knew it could count on a state inbred with decades of “old white man” syndrome to take a cue from Gingrich. The GOP knew they could count
on righteous indignation from Gingrich to a) put the liberal media hack in his place, b) put that uppity ex-wife in place, c) put them welfare folks
in their place, and d) put that uppity Juan Williams in his place who suggest Gingrich’s comments might be racially or class insensitive.
And South Carolina bought it hook, line and sinker. We knew we could count on you to help elect a President – just not the one you awarded your
delegates to. Someone will be the nominee – just not Gingrich – because the GOP needs the stage a little longer.
Congratulations South Carolina – you did your job. Now go take a shower because you were rode hard and put up wet. Hopefully, the GOP wore a condom.
However, I’m doubtful that despite their promises that they’ll call you tomorrow.
