Newt Gingrich (h/t @RobGeorge):

I think Republican consultants are mostly very stupid. I think they have no education. I think they have no sense of history. … If I throw away African Americans, and then I throw away Latinos, and then I throw away suburban women, and then I throw away people under 40, and then I throw away everything north of Philadelphia — there’s a morning where Republicans can’t get to a majority.

The year?

Not 2012.

Not 2010.

Not 2008.

Fundamentally a visionary in a party of consultants.

The consultants won.
