Scarborough tells secrets about Chris Wallace
Joe Scarborough told some tales out of school on Chris Wallace. On Morning Joe, Scarborough announced that Chris Wallace loathed Mitt Romney but never said why. He said it was common knowledge over at Fox News, even though Wallace would deny the allegation.
Romney will appear on Chris Wallace’s Sunday Show this weekend. In other words, he ventures into the lions’ den. Political analysts say that Romney has to get over the good guy image and throw a few punches at Newt. He can’t let someone else do it. He has to mess up his own hair and get his own knuckles bruised.
I can’t imagine that a political party who smugly prides itself on its virtue will send Newt Gingrich into the ring against Obama. Gingrich has an EWWWWW factor that turns ordinary ‘baggage’ into a fleet of steamers. (Remember the scene from Titanic?) Newt is a philander who tried to oust others when his own behavior was probably worse. He was run out of congress on an ethics charge and somehow ended up with over a million dollars from Freddie Mac. He is the quintessential insider. Why on earth are Republicans supporting this dirt bag? I can’t believe people are turning up their noses at Romney and Huntsman in favor of this nasty little man who is long on arrogance and short on consistency.
I know he’s smart. Please help me understand the attraction. I honestly don’t get it.
