Newt Gingrich: Epilogue

From Jonah Goldberg's (email-only) newsletter:

...it is hard to remember a better example of a brilliant leader so misreading the political climate and his place in it than Newt in these last months.

The truth, of course, is that such mistakes aren't made in a day. They involve years of careful delusion. Still, I think it's sad.

Jennifer Rubin:

Newt Gingrich, true to his stubborn tone deafness, went back to the well on Rep. Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan. He insisted that if the American people don’t support it, then the GOP “should slow down.” Once again, he could not resist undermining the entire Republican House caucus that led on a tough issue

KJL over at The Corner, reviewing the deabte:

Newt … I can’t pretend to know what he’s thinking.

Try harder, KJL.  Think...ego gratification and speaking fees...
