The Dog and Pony Show

By now you’ve heard the story a million times: The Gingrich bandwagon limps into South Carolina trailing frontrunner Mitt Romney by a full 10 points (or more), but the pugnacious Newt rallies the troops with his fiery performance at the debates turning certain defeat into a landslide victory. Woo-hoo!

By Sunday, the philandering ex-Speaker’s triumphant grin can be seen plastered in headlines across the country while political pundits from both sides of the aisle scratch their heads and ponder the shocking upset that’s turned the campaign into a two-man, no-holds-barred, steelcage smackdown.

Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Too bad it’s all baloney.
