Newt also seems to have surged back up to front runner, which shocked me considering I thought everyone that was working on his campaign had quit.

Newts been around the block. I think it was in his plans to kick-back for a bit and wait for the whackos to reveal their political incompetence.

Could you imagine having a president named 'Newt'?

Newt's the latest "Anyone But Romney".

Expect him to crash now that his $300,000 "I was just a historian" paycheck from Fannie Mae has turned out to actually be closer to two million dollars. A fact he didn't exactly advertise when asked about it during a recent debate.

That and the fact that dude's just a ****. He has all the charisma of a **** lesion.

Not really that bad of an idea. If he beats her, he becomes a strong front runner. If he loses, he can drop out now and save some money.

It's more bizarre than anything else. Pelosi and the president are in separate spheres of government. Sure, they both have opinions on policy issues but so do the other actual presidential candidates.

And, of course, there's nothing at all in it for Pelosi. Who would consider it a coup to beat Perry in a debate these days? At worse, she "loses" and takes the hits, at best she "wins" and looks like she just took time out of her schedule to beat a Special Ed student.

Edit: lulz...

I already edited in her response.

No one but the already converted would actually think she should feel obligated to debate some random guy who decided to challenge her. If he wants to debate her, he should run for her Congressional seat.

So which boogeyman will the republicans choose

the black man who wants their white women?
the mormon?
Or the moron?

Perry has an edge because republicans clearly don't rate intelligence high on their list of necessary qualities for leaders

Flavor of the Month (tm) is swinging over to Newt Gingrich, of all people.

Every time he opens his mouth, he sounds like a total *******. He also sounds like he knows he's smarter than you. (He actually is one of the more intelligent candidates in the race, but with Bachman "vaccines make your babies retarded" and Perry "I can't remember what that third department is I want to close" as competitors, that's not saying much.)

The ******* thing flies with the Limbaugh crowd, but the "I'm smarter than you and I know it" attitude doesn't.

Giving him until the first week of December to flame out again.

To be fair, Newton is a name I like. What scares me is that his middle name is Leroy. If this guy gets the nomination, he might steal the black vote from Obama.

Newt would be a good candidate with this crop of Republican candidates, if voters didn't fucking hate him even more than they hate Hillary Clinton.

Good job of him keeping his head down while the other neo-cons self destructed, though.

More Cain lulz:
Political Wire wrote:
Herman Cain told CNN that another woman will come forward to accuse him of having an extramarital affair over 13 years.

Said Cain: "I wanted to get out in front of it. I have nothing to hide, I have done nothing wrong."

However, Cain's lawyer issued a statement to Fox 5 Atlanta that was less-than-helpful if he's denying the affair:

"This is not an accusation of harassment in the workplace -- this is not an accusation of an assault -- which are subject matters of legitimate inquiry to a political candidate. Rather, this appears to be an accusation of private, alleged consensual conduct between adults -- a subject matter which is not a proper subject of inquiry by the media or the public. No individual, whether a private citizen, a candidate for public office or a public official, should be questioned about his or her private sexual life."

Business guy and campaign bundler who was engaged in a semi-scandal with Obama over some real estate. Eventually Obama sat down with the editorial boards of the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times for several hours and just answered questions about it until there wasn't much else to say and the story died.

Rezko was just sentenced on various corruption and bribery charges for 10.5 years.
Chicago Tribune wrote:
Rezko, 56, made a name for himself as a powerful insider and fundraiser, earning a position as one of Blagojevich's top advisers and confidants from early in his administration. He had a knack for cultivating up-and-coming politicians, including state Sen. Barack Obama, who would become president.

Prosecutors portrayed Rezko as a key member of Blagojevich's "kitchen cabinet" who exercised influence over the appointments made by the governor to state boards and commissions. In return, he expected campaign contributions to be made to Blagojevich, the government alleged.

A jury convicted him in 2008 of using his clout with Blagojevich and scheming with Stuart Levine, a longtime Republican political insider, to extort millions of dollars from firms that were seeking state business or regulatory approval.

And in October 2010, Rezko, an immigrant with an American rags-to-riches story to his credit, pleaded guilty to a separate federal fraud charge over the bogus sale of his pizza restaurants. He is still be sentenced for that conviction.
