Krauthammer’s Take


From FOXs Special Report with Bret Baier, Dec. 26, 2011:

On Newt Gingrich comparing his failure to gather enough signatures in Virginia to Pearl Harbor, 1941:

I’m not sure the analogy really does justice to the grandness, the immensity of Newt.

I think the better analogy is 1066, the Battle of Hastings. . . . King Harold is dead. William the Conqueror has landed. And Newt is going pick up the crown of the last king of the Saxons and lead a trusty band of Saxons — fueled with money from Freddie Mac — that will retake Britain from William and change the course of European history.

I think that kind of analogy captures the cosmic importance of the Newt campaign.
