With Newt Gingrich's resurgent candidacy for the GOP nomination in 2012, many thoughts assault me.
"I've got all this stuff twirling round in my head."
Nope. Not it. Wrong candidate; that's Herman Cain.
Wrong candidate again; Rick Perry.
I keep hearing the mantra, "Any candidate but the Romney candidate" which puts me in mind of a favorite scene from a favorite movie, The Way We Were. Barbra Streisand, as Katie Morosky, student president of the Young Communist Leage on her 1930s' college campus, is trying to motivate the student body to strike for peace in Spain during the Spanish Civil War. She is repeatedly rebuffed by the other students until she gives a stirring speech.
For one shining moment, she has them.
And then the signs go up.
