Ok, so that isn't a direct quote. Gingrich, of course, doesn't have a non-political bone in his body. He's evil, not stupid. And he's smart enough to take the damned millstone off of his neck, and let it sink without him.
The only thing these morons have had going for them for six years has been a suppliant and sycophantic press corps. That's gone, and they are sinking.
