Newt should of course not drop out because of this absurd carnival act, and MSM should avoid giving legs to a radio talker looking for attention for himself rather than for the choices the country faces.
MSM is eager for the Trumps and Savages to divert attention from the Obama economy and from the awful implications of a super secret stealth drone in the hands of Iran, the rise of the Islamists in Egypt and the perils of European Union disintegration. Obama is failing in an unprecedented fashion across every issue, so the MSM will summon Trump andSavage and who knows who else.
Can Jesse the Body be far behind offering to run the candidates through a reality show boot camp?
There was a staid, dull Gingrich-Huntsman “debate” yesterday that should have been much better, and Thursday’s debate, the last before the Iowa caucuses should also be significant, but what all the candidates need to do is engage well prepared, conservative questioners about their records, their proposed policies for governing, and their intended approach to the campaign ahead. That is the sort of event that should generate headlines, not PR stunts from third parties selling things.
