Dear friends,

 Since I don't often have even 1 relatively cheering thought, much less of the political type, I'll share these.

Gingrich against Romney is a replay of Goldwater(=Newt as preposterous candidate alluring to nutty & cruel & nasty Republican type people) v Rockefeller (=rich man's candidate who will have banks' interest at heart & be a good puppet for another part of this Republican type; but is also relatively less dangerous). Rockefeller lost because then it was not acceptable to be divorced with a newly married wife who has a baby less than 9 months after the marriage. But when Goldwater beat Rockefeller in California (and thus began the process of destroying the elite "liberal" wing of the Republican party, those conservative in economics but liberal socially and sexually), Goldwater (together with Bill Miller) did lose to Johnson (and Humphry).

That Obama is a kind of Kennedy to Pavlovian Republican types; so it's not just his blackness and a fiercely racist campaign does not address Obama's modernity.

Marianne Gingrich's lawyer is an ultimate super-expensive insider in DC: it was she who attacked Clinton for hours on TV and said he should be impeached for his sexual use of Monica Lewinsky; she is successful in high profile attacks; and she defended Gordon Libby. She comes expensive. Someone is paying her fee and it could be someone who wants Newt out. Fingers crossed the money keeps flowing at her.

Actually that's three relatively cheering political thoughts. I feel like the Count in Sesame Street.

""Obama is a kind of Kennedy to Pavlovian Republican types"--oh yeah. And it seems to me that the Republicans have spent the past few decades trying to get their dogs to salivate on cue." Judy

So you agree with my (mildly) cheering thoughts. Not too cheering as last night I was watchnig DemocracyNow and I saw clips of Gingich where he's plausible to fools. And he's getting big money thrown at him now. In 1961 and again 1964 we had no secret pacs. Miss Drake

Romney, as Gary Younge suggested in the Guardian, is the Republican version of John Kerry: they don't like him but they think independents will. Hopefully they will be as wrong in 2012 as Dems were in 2004. Arthur
