“Moron Of The Week” Inductee Newt Ginggrich Beats Fellow Inductee Mitt “Magic Underpants” Romney In South California
The Advocate reports:
Riding a recent surge that defied incendiary “open marriage” allegations by an ex-wife, Newt Gingrich has won the South Carolina Republican primary over Mitt Romney, raising the spectre of a protracted battle for the GOP nomination.
Just minutes after the polls closed in the Palmetto State, major networks projected a Gingrich win, one buoyed by evangelical support as well as last-minute decision makers: Exit polls showed more than half of voters had made up their minds in the last few days, a majority of whom cast their vote for Gingrich.
Taking the stage Saturday night in Columbia to chants of “Newt can win,” Gingrich said as nominee he would challenge President Obama to seven debates, quipping, “I already have conceded that he can use a teleprompter if he wants to.” Gingrich then launched into a common theme of his campaign: fighting the purported threat to religious freedom in America, fueled in part, he said, by “dictatorial religious bigots” serving in the judiciary.
As he’s done before, Gingrich singled out one judge in particular: U.S. district judge Fred Biery of San Antonio, who in a 2011 ruling blocked school prayer during a graduation ceremony at a Texas high school.
Over the past week, Gingrich had attacked Romney as a “Massachusetts moderate” and slammed the former governor’s record in TV ads, questioning his changed position on abortion rights. A super PAC supporting Gingrich spent $3.4 million on advertising in the state, where unemployment is at nearly 10%, casting Romney as a reckless corporate villain.
Rick Santorum and Ron Paul are fighting for a third-place finish. In an interview with CNN’s Dana Bash at his campaign headquarters, Santorum shrugged off what appears to be a poor finish, despite an endorsement earlier this week from a coalition of top evangelical leaders.
Santorum congratulated Gingrich, saying he “kicked butt” — two days after the former Pennsylvania senator attacked his rival for emotional instability and a “grandiosity” while serving in Congress that often lacked substance.
“The great narrative” of the campaign, Santorum said, “is that there was an inevitability in this,” referring to Romney as presumptive GOP nominee. “I took Iowa. Newt took South Carolina. It’s game on again.”
All four candidates are currently scheduled to participate in a Monday debate in Tampa, Fla. hosted by NBC News and the National Journal.
“We are hopeful that in the contests ahead that Speaker Gingrich will run the type of positive campaign he promised earlier in the primary process,” GOProud cofounder Christopher Barron said in a statement following Gingrich’s win. “It is clear that Speaker Gingrich’s poll numbers improved dramatically once he ended his unnecessary and unproductive attacks on Governor Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital.”

Hypocrite Of The Day: Newt Gingrich -Newt Gingrich’s Ex-Wife says Newt Wanted An OPEN MARRIAGE
The reporter who conducted that interview, ABC Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross, told WMAL’s Morning Majority program that Marianne Gingrich claims her ex-husband wanted an ‘open marriage.’ “He came to her and said, ‘I want to stay married to you and still have an affair with Calista, his current wife,” said Ross. “According to Marianne, he said ‘You need to share me,’ and she said ‘I don’t want to share,’ and the marriage ended,” he added.

Hypocrite Karen Santorum: It’s Wrong What Gay Activists Have Done”
“The left, which thought it had buried Santorum years ago, is going after him with a hatred unmatched. They hate him with that special ire reserved for a man’s virtues, not his vices. They will go after him not just to defeat Rick Santorum, but to smear his good name, to associate it with their own muck, to take a decent and honorable man and try literally to make his name mean mud. They will not succeed.
“The American people, I promise you, are not going to reject a man they would otherwise support because he believes in traditional Christian views of sex and marriage. Especially when he believes-not just with his words, and not just with his vote, but with every action of his soul and his life-that a man’s job is to support his children, born and unborn, to commit a loving and faithful marriage to one woman, and to devote himself to being a good dad. That’s Rick Santorum.” -Slaggie Gilamonster, jawohling to the anti-gay hate industry’s endorsement of Frothy Mix.

KANSAS: Romney Campaign Accepts Endorsement Of Anti-Gay Extremist
The Romney campaign is trumpeting the endorsement of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the anti-gay evangelical who is also known as the chief architect of Arizona’s racist SB 1070. Kobach’s church has ties to the violent anti-gay fervor currently sweeping across Africa. HRC’s Backstory Blog reports:
In a speech to an evangelical group, Kobach once compared the gay rights movement to a frog in boiling water.
Religion Dispatch’s Lauri Lebo reported in 2010 that Kobach’s Church was a member of the Anglican Mission of the Americas – which is sponsored by the Anglican Church of Rwanda. Unfortunately, many of the leaders of the Anglican Church of Rwanda actively work to spread misinformation about LGBT people. According to a 2007 report from The New Times in Kigali, Archbishop Emmanuel Kolini called on East African churches to fight homosexuality “for the good of society.” Kolini went on to say that his churches would not “mingle” with LGBT people in matters of faith, adding: “We are reformed Anglicans who want to adhere to the original creeds of the Bible, and that’s why our church has decided to ignore the 2008 Lambeth Conference because it has not done much to fight homosexuality in the communion.”

“I don’t know where those pink flyers came from. I was the communications director on the 2002 campaign. I don’t know who distributed them. I never saw them and I was the communications director. I never saw them and I never approved them. I’m not quite sure where they came from.” - Romney spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom on the above flyer, which includes the tagline: “Paid for by the Romney For Governor Committee. Romney was questioned about the flyer during yesterday’s GOP debate.
