So I am sure you have heard. ABC has an ‘explosive’ new interview in which Newt second wife is gonna cut him off at the knees by revealing just how big a jerk he is.
Considering that we know that Newt was cheating on his first wife when he married the second and cheating on the second when he went for the third and we know that is not the news, it must be real bad.
Hell hath no fury like the woman you cheated with and then cheated on, no sir.
I have always known (and have written several times) that Newt would blow up. I didn’t know how or when, but I knew it would happen. Don’t get me wrong, I hope that Newt’s conversion was sincere and I can only assume that it is. But when you have been that big a (documented) jerk for that long, these things are gonna come up and, conversion or no conversion, your history and your behavior matter.
So if the ABC story is to be believed, Newt is in all likelihood finished. So do us all a favor Newt, get out. Now. It is the best thing for you, your family, and your party. Give a conservative alternative a chance to defeat Romney without you siphoning a crucial 8% for the next few primaries.
You gave it a shot, but there is just too much history. You don’t have a shot, but you can still make sure we have one.
