It is about the Benjamins

  1. Early entrants like Newt, who have no chance, and getting "in and out" of the race like monkeys. They know if they keep the camera on them, it will increase the demand, and $$$ for speaking engagements.

    I'm reminded of the old Hollywood adage, that even bad publicity is good publicity.

    GOOD LORD, NEWT GINGRICH. The former Speaker spent the entire week confusing reporters everywhere with seemingly hourly shifts in his presidential disposition. First he was jumping into the race, officially, in Georgia. Then he wasn't. Then he was "seriously considering" a bid! Then he was just going to "explore" the possibility of "exploring" forming an "exploratory committee" to do further "exploring." At long last, he launched a website.

    Fox News, acting much more decisively than Gingrich has proven capable of, decided that all the talk of his presidential aspirations was serious enough that they suspended his contributor contract (as well as Rick Santorum's) for the next 60 days.

    Gingrich's antics aren't likely to impress Senator Tom Coburn (R-Okla), who, while praising Gingrich for his "vision," nevertheless averred that America needed "somebody that's soft and [eyes-wide] open and is stable and learned and is going to consistently bring us together." South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R) was more blunt in her assessment: "There was a place and time for him."

    There's a sucker born every minute.
