“I think — and this is crazy, but so are we — that Gingrich is going to have a better time in the general election than Mitt Romney. I think it’s going to be Obama’s 99% versus the 1%, and Romney sort of represents the 1%.”
- Publisher of the New Hampshire Union Leader, Joe McQuaid on why his paper is endorsing Newt Gingrich.
Mitt Romney is indeed part of the 1 percent, but so is Newt Gingrich. Both Romney and Gingrich have spent their entire adult lives shilling for corporate dollars, both in and out of government, and both of them have serious baggage, but Newt’s baggage far exceeds that of Mitt Romney. Truly an endorsement that signifies the definition of the word "irony".
