John King started the night with a question about Newt’s ex-wife’s interview in which she alleged Newt sought an “open marriage.” Newt answered the question eventually with a denial, but used the oppoturnity to give King a smackdown which will be remembered for a long time.

It was classic Newt, and will...

Endgame assessment: Newt stole the buzz with the opening smackdown of John King over the issue of his ex-wife. After that Santorum was very aggressive, going after both Romney and Newt time and again; people either will like it or hate it. After a while he became grating. Romney has a...

I was wondering when someone would bring out the Mike Huckabee line from the 2008 campaign, when he was attacked by Romney much the way Romney attacked Newt in this election cycle.

Romney always starts it.  He did it in Iowa in December 2007 against Huckabee and McCain,  and in Iowa 2011...

There’s more to the story than you are hearing in the media.  Marianne Gingrich is no innocent, and she was the one who broke the marriage and cleaned out the house, via Robert Costa via AP report from 1999 (h/t Burke):

Full speech by Rick Perry withdrawing from the race and endorsing Newt.

If you want just the section endorsing Newt, it’s here, but I recommend listening to the whole speech, it’s worth it.

The Perry endorsement is huge not because Perry had a large percentage (although even a few percent helps), but because...

Instapundit:

ISN’T THIS LEAKING DIVORCE DETAILS OF A RIVAL kind of an Obama trademark?  I’m just sayin’ . . . .

That would presume Drudge got the tip from an opposing campaign, and forced ABC’s hand to release it prior to South Carolina in order to influence the election.

There’s a whole lot of punditry who have been singing the inevitability of Mitt Romney because for the first time in history a single candidate won both Iowa and New Hampshire in an open race.  The narrative was stupid...
