Newt bombs in attempt to get on ballot…. Just Like Pearl Harbor or Something
From Ed Morrissey via HOT AIR
What’s next a Hiroshima reference? 9-11?
Newt Gingrichâ€™s campaign director said the candidate is viewing the setback in Virginia, in which he failed to collect enough signatures to qualify for the stateâ€™s primary, as an â€œunexpected setbackâ€ similar to the attack on Pearl Harbor.
â€œNewt and I agreed that the analogy is December 1941,â€ campaign director Michael Krull wrote on the Gingrich Facebook page. â€œWe have experienced an unexpected set-back, but we will re-group and re-focus with increased determination, commitment and positive action. Throughout the next months there will be ups and downs; there will be successes and failures; there will be easy victories and difficult days â€“ but in the end we will stand victorious.â€
