Newt for RNC Chair?

Please let this happen.

A behind-the-scenes battle to take the reins of the Republican National Committee is taking off between former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele.

Neither man will acknowledge his interest in the post, but Republicans close to each are burning up the phone lines and firing off e-mails to fellow party members in an effort to oust RNC Chairman Mike Duncan in the wake of the second consecutive drubbing of Republican candidates at the polls.

Either one would be fine with me. Everyone knows the best thing to do with a losing hand is to refuse a new card and double down.

  1. Oh yes, cuddly old Newt Gingrich. Wouldn't that be great? After the Obama campaign demonstrated how an election should be run, if the R's go back to the good ol' boys Newt, Karl, and others, they'll get politics as usual, old-style, and they'll just keep losing. But that's okay.
