Newt Gingrich (R-GA)
Former Speaker of the House
Here's the former Congressman in an interview with Politico:
"The Republican Party right now is like a mid-size college team trying to play in the Super Bowl. It is pretty hard to say our losses were because of John McCain’s campaign. McCain performed way above plausibility compared to where the Republican president was in the polls. We have to look honestly at what went wrong.”
He may not have a perfect record (far from it), but Newt scores a touchdown with that political analysis. Way to go, Mr. Gingrich, and congratulations.
Man, we've got a little Republican Gold Star streak going on here at The 'Festo, don't we?
