The Beltwaying of Newt Gingrich
Quin Hillyer in The Sound of Newt Choking and Spluttering , has come up with an appropriate description of what has happened to Newt (my emphasis):
IF this latest poll is accurate, showing Hoffman now leading the three-way race in New York’s special congresional election, then Newt Gingrich, Pete Sessions, John Boehner, and all the party hacks, including the NRCC staff who reportedly helped talk the local New Yorkers into endorsing Dede Scozzafava, will be eating so much rancid crow that they are bound to cough and choke and splutter….Frankly, Newt Gingrich should be ashamed. He has been Beltwayed.
What began in the days of Bill Clinton, continued with Nancy Pelosi, has now been finished by Dede Scozzafava.
P.S. I think Newt missed Mark Steyn’s warning to him last week:
