Allah Pundit links Newt eating some crow on Hannity. Allah throws on an interesting spin:
His endorsement was always strategic, to support Republican leaders at the local level and dissuade third-party challenges next year.Well, that's all very tactical. I appreciate that Newt feels himself a sports coach, looking to score the points required to win the game.
However, if the game itself is more of a problem than the other team, then I wonder if Newt's approach has much strategic value.
Keep drifting to starboard, Newt: you'll get there. Also, that dream coalition will materialize. Attempts to dissuade third-party challenges are likely to hurt more than they help.
