Newt Gingrich might have called out Mitt Romney on his “pious baloney,” but poor Newt might now be classified as “desperate baloney” after being eclipsed this week by the frothy Rick Santorum in Colorado and Minnesota.
I would have mentioned Missouri, but Gingrich’s campaign was so unorganized that poor Newt wasn’t even on the ballot.
After losing Florida, Gingrich’s new strategy is to seek delegates and survive until Super Tuesday, where geography favors him more than the other candidates. Oklahoma, Tennessee and Ohio all vote on March 6, as does Georgia, his home state.
On the other hand, so does Virginia, another state that Gingrich failed to quality for the ballot, despite the fact it’s his current home state (a true Washington outsider).
