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):

Documents related to the divorce filed Friday in Cobb County Superior Court include a separation agreement...

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...

From Drudge:

Marianne Gingrich has said she could end her ex-husband’s career with a single interview.

Earlier this week, she sat before ABCNEWS cameras, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

She spoke to ABCNEWS reporter Brian Ross for two hours, and her explosive revelations are set to rock the trail.

More Romney campaign theater of the absurd.

The Romney campaign must know that Newt is surging in South Carolina:

“There are some increasing signs — though all of it anecdotal for now — that Newt Gingrich is gaining some momentum three days before the South Carolina primary. First was his strong debate performance on...

Sarah Palin on Hannity just stated that if she were in South Carolina she would vote for Newt to keep the election from being declared over if Romney wins.

She emphasized that we need answers to questions, and can’t risk October surprises.

Last night’s debate reminded people of why Newt surged in the fall before Romney’s SuperPAC and almost the entire conservative media went after him in December.

This was one of the highlights (which led to Juan williams asking the ill-fated follow-up on the “food stamp president” line):

Politico has a story about Newt agreeing not to go after Romney any more about Bain, and Newt was just on Hannity’s radio show on the issue.  (I’ll post the audio if I can get it.)

Newt said there are three or four instances where the record is really bad and Romney...

Mitt Romney made a statement yesterday about “firing” people who provide him with services which has been taken out of context.  He was talking about health insurance companies, and made the point that he likes to be able to make choices.

We don’t know all of the details of how Bain conducted its business under Mitt Romney, but we do know that in at least several instances the conduct was to squeeze out cash while leaving behind a failed company.  In many other instances Bain helped companies to grow.

As you know, I knew this day would come.  The only question was whether it would be early enough in the primaries to make a difference, too late in the primaries, or in the general election.

But the day surely was to come when Mitt Romney’s years at Bain would come under scrutiny.  After...

Remember when one Republican candidate viciously attacking the leading Republican candidate was patriotic?

Like in Iowa, when everyone from Charles Krauthammer on down blamed Newt’s past for the several millions dollars in negative attack ads run by a pro-Romney SuperPAC?  When National Review devoted almost an

As long time readers know, I really didn’t pay much attention to the 2008 Republican primaries.

But as I’ve gone back in researching various issues, I’ve noticed that a lot of candidates in 2008 had a reaction to the way Mitt Romney ran his campaign similar to the reaction Newt is...
