Wisconsin GOP primary voters have spoken and our man Newt Gingrich—a Legend in His Own Mind!—rolled to a fantastic fourth place finish. Whoo!
Yes, Cowboy fans, Newt was fourth out of four in tonight's Badger state race with a whopping 6.1 percent of the Republican vote. Even the clueless Rep. Ron Paul got more votes than the Newtster.
How the mighty have fallen. After his South Carolina victory, Gingrich was brimming with confidence. (Okay, Gingrich is always brimming with confidence.) He assured the Republican base of his intellectual superiority and eventual victory at the Tampa convention.
Alas, it is not to be. Gingrich has been in political free fall for weeks, just about the time he promised a new U.S. base on the moon.
Let's face it, Mitt Romney—practically a GOP liberal!—will be the Republican nominee. Rick Santorum will keep pretending that he can get the nomination, but he can't.
As for Gingrich, there's not a snowball's chance in hell that he'll get the Republican nomination. Say goodbye, Newt.
