Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is throwing in the towel, according to inside sources. The only surprise for most of us is that it took so long for him to see the writing on the wall.
Personally, I suspect he thought he had a chance to return as the only remaining NotRomney in the race. [Representative Ron Paul (R-Lake Jackson, TX) doesn’t really count, since he’s more of a Walrus than an Elephant.] But after throwing all of his chips in on Delaware, and still coming up with fewer than half the votes former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney received, even one as megalomaniacal as Newt could see that he has no hope.
And so we are officially down to two candidates: a RINO (wearing an Elephant suit) and a Walrus. But we already knew that we were down to one real candidate.
Sooooo…how ’bout them Veepstakes?
