Memo from NYC

"South Carolina is too small for a republic and too large for an insane asylum." - James Louis Petigru

Thank you, South Carolina. 

Specifically, thank you South Carolina Republicans for giving Newton Leroy Gingrich a whopping victory last night in your state's primary. Now the former Speaker has the Big Mo going into Florida and future primaries and Willard Romney, the once inevitable nominee, has stumbled badly. 

Thank you, South Carolina, for making it more possible for the most unelectable Republican candidate since Barry Goldwater to become the 2012 nominee. Barack Obama must be smiling this morning. Democrats must be smiling this morning.

Mr NYC is certainly smiling this morning.

Can you imagine if Newt Gingrich ends up running against Obama? If that's the case, I don't think Obama will even need to campaign. He can just point at Newt Gingrich, say to the country "You're seriously going to make this guy President?", laugh, and get the whole country to laugh with him -- and then go on to win a second term in a huge landslide.

Go Newt!
