    Sunday night

    Sunday night

    Interesting stuff:

    • Good neutral article about the 10 factors which could sink Newt in Iowa.  One of them was “Fox News Talkers.”  I guess I wasn’t the only one who noticed.  Coulter was on Hannity, O’Reilly, and apparently Red Eye singing the same Newt’s crazy tune.  Trying to track down the Red Eye video or transcript, apparently she used more over the top language than when she played the birther card Friday night.  (If anyone finds it, let me know.)  I think Newt can survive National Review and others, but if Fox News has turned on him, it will be tough.
    • 5 best war dogs.
    • Christopher Hitchens and Newt talking terrorism not long after 9/11 (Richocet via Instapundit).  Newt has a body of thoughtful interaction on a variety of subjects which is lacking in any other candidate running, which is not helping him as it give more targets to pick apart.  No one can say he sticks to predetermined, poll-tested talking points.
    • Liberal Democrats in Britain are fighing a proposed marriage tax break.  Figures.
    • 2003: Why Vaclav Havel is our era’s George Orwell and more.  2011: RIP.
    • More to follow.
    • Newt’s comments on the judiciary are going to be a problem for him because they are so easily misrepresented in a headline as “Newt wants judges arrested” or “Newt will ignore judicial decisions he doesn’t like.”  If you read his full white paper on it from his website, as well as listen to what he actually has said, his position is much more limited than it has been made to sound.  But I think the damage is done, it’s just a question of how much.

    Is Coulter now a paid shill for Romney or is she using this meme to get on TV more? Then again, she was so gung ho for Christie, who, btw, showed his true colors on the Ground Zero mosque issue and his appointment of a muslim to the NJ courts, maybe she is doing this as a favor for him. Maybe Chrisitie is angling for the VP slot as a short cut to the presidency in 2016 or 2020.

    I used to like Coulter but every once in a while she goes off the reservstion into never-never land and espouses a non-conservative meme. The truth of the matter is that she is in the business to sell her books and that is what it is all about. She makes provocative statements to get a rise out of everybody and her name in the news and on the blogs. There is no such thing as bad ublicity. She’s really very good at this.

    If Newt sinks to far to “electable” and we want to circumvent Mittsie , who to get behind of the remaining standing?
