Newt’s Terrible, Horrible, Kinda Good, Very Bad Week

This week Newt Gingrich finally got what he’s wanted all along, a one-on-one shot at Mitt Romney in the Republican primary race.  The only problem is, Romney has such a commanding lead in the delegate count that the media has determined the race all-but-over and barely acknowledges the former Speaker’s presence any more.    Making matters worse for Gingrich, instead of soaking up former Santorum support, he’s spent the last few days trying to deflect stories about bounced checks and bad blood with the conservative Fox News Channel.
