The bumper car experience is nothing new to anyone who has been part of American politics, but still, former Speaker Newt Gingrich had to feel the impact of all those attack ads launched by a PAC supporting former Governor Mitt Romney (Mass.) over the last few weeks.

In my opinion, there's no question former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich won the GOP Presidential Debate in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Gingrich received a standing ovation that ran into the commercial break when he debated the idea of high school students working, even as janitors, with Juan Williams.
More commentary on Tuesday. Oh, a hat tip to Fox. That was an excellent debate with well-framed questions.
All eyes are on South Carolina as GOP candidates prepare to debate in Myrtle Beach. Fox News and The Wall Street Journal are sponsoring the debate to be broadcast at 9 p.m. ET. Will this debate be a game changer?
There’s a deep concern among conservatives of different persuasions that former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, should he win the GOP nomination, will not be able to win the White House in November.
Despite victories in the 2010 Midterm Elections—victories directly enabled by conservatives and tea partiers—Republican power brokers virtually anointed a single candidate in 2011. The Republican National Committee Finance co-chair saw to that in October.
Remember if power brokers had prevailed, Ronald Reagan would’ve never been president.
Reagan White House staffer Peter Ferrara wrote an article in the American Spectator expressing concerns I’ve also written about.
In January, 2009, the blogosphere was so intoxicated with the Obama victory that a numerologist became a topic of interest. Glynis McCants appeared on a radio show and the celebrity 'Numbers Lady' said Obama’s life path number was a 2.
A website featuring women writers disagreed. It became apparent they hadn’t followed instructions on how to compute a life path number. I wrote a column about President Barack Obama’s Life Path Number in 2009.
Since everyone got all jazzed about Obama’s number, I figured it might be fun to calculate the life path numbers for GOP presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney now has wins in two states. Candidates are setting up shop in South Carolina, and that state’s GOP Primary will more than likely be a major factor in who stays in the race. Carolina will be the state where the field gets thinned I think.
Many media have pointed out that no other non-incumbent Republican candidate has won in both Iowa and New Hampshire since 1976.
Every time I hear 1976 mentioned in the context of Republican politics, I wonder why we’d want to remember that year.
Although former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is still the overall frontrunner according to averages at Real Clear Politics, Romney continues to enjoy the implied status of presumed nominee among legacy media.
Current averages at RCP show national rankings as Gingrich with 27.2 percent, Romney with 24.8, Paul with 12.6, Perry with 6.4, Bachmann with 6.2 and Santorum with 4.2.
