Political Irony On Display
Democrats are afraid of Newt Gingrich because they think he’s conservative and they know from experience that a solid unabashed conservative will beat them at the ballot box.
Those Republicans we called the “establishment Republicans” are afraid of Newt Gingrich because they think he’s a conservative and they believe a solid, unabashed conservative will lose to the Democrats.
Other Republicans and Conservatives ache for a solid, unabashed conservative candidate because they know Democrats are a lot smarter than establishment Republicans. Those other Republicans and Conservatives hope that Newt Gingrich is conservative, or at least that he will be this time, and they worry about that.
