Pizza mogul, and former GOP candidate Herman Cain has decided to endorse Newt Gingrich. The endorsement comes on the eve of the increasingly pliable and important Florida primary.
As the news of the endorsement was being released poll numbers show Mitt Romney’s boomerang lead growing to 11 percentage points over second place Newt Gingrich. The gap widened by 3 percentage points after the endorsement was received.
Regardless of he Cain endorsement, Newt Gingrich has vowed to stay in the race all the way to the end.
“I will go all the way to the convention,” Mr. Gingrich said after a rally at a golf course here. “I expect to win the nomination.”
I thought this a particularly interesting quote to share as I had never heard of a political rally at a golf course. What happens at a golf course based political rally? Doesn’t a political rally at a golf course kinda piss off the other golfers? Ya know, all that screaming and cheering while some poor slob tries to sink a 10 foot putt!
Newt supporters: “Newt! Newt! Newt! Newt!”
Golfer 1: “Hey, quiet down over there! I am trying to putt!”.
Newt supporters: “Screw you!, we are with Newt!” (cheers erupt).
Golfer 1: “You are fudging-up my handicap!”
Newt supporters: “Your handicap was Herman Cain! hehehaahaaheehee! (collective giggling)”
Golfer 1: “I will let you play through so I can focus on my round.”
Newt Supporters: “We are gonna play through all the way to the White House! (Cheers erupt more loudly)”
Golfer 1: “Fine, hit the ball and move already.”
Newt: (in an admonishing tone) “I find it utterly despicable that you golfers are annoyed by my rally here at the golf course. In 1837, then President Andrew Jackson stated that the fundamental rights of golfers under the agreement made at the Council of Trent…’
Golfer 1: “Whatever!, hit the ball you history schmoe! And stop leaving footprints on the greens!”
Newt supporters: (as they march away) “Newt! Newt! Newt! Newt!
