News Roundup for 1/4/12

-Headline of the Day-
"Gingrich Floats Idea of Anti-Romney Alliance."

The Republican presidential nominating process is already starting to feel like some crazy reality TV game show. Now Newt Gingrich proposes a strategy straight out of Survivor -- weaker candidates form an alliance to take out the stronger one.

In an interview with wingnut radio host Laura Ingraham, Newt was asked, "Can you see a scenario under which [Rick Santorum and yourself] would align together to try to defeat the establishment candidate, Mitt Romney?"

"Absolutely. Of course," Newt said. "I mean Rick and I have a 20-year friendship, we are both rebels, we both came into this business as reformers, we both dislike deeply the degree to which the establishment sells out the American people. We both think Washington has to be changed in very fundamental ways, and we have lots of things that fit together. And the thing that's interesting is if you take the votes, you add to that Perry and Bachmann, you begin to see the size of the conservative vote compared to Romney...if you take, you know, Santorum and Perry and Bachmann and Gingrich you get some sense of what a small minority Romney really represents."

This will probably work out great -- provided Mittens doesn't find the immunity idol hidden in New Hampshire. (Political Wire)

-Cartoon time with Mark Fiore-

I know, there was a lot more crazy than that, but these things can only run so long... (MarkFiore.com)

-Bonus HotD-
"Jon Huntsman Reacts To Sen. John McCain’s Romney Endorsement: 'Nobody Cares.'"

Probably the truest thing a Republican has said all week. (Mediaite)
