Politics: Donald Trump combines best qualities of Ross Perot, Charle Sheen

  • I think the Republicans are very concerned that I [may] run as an independent. I could also possibly win as an independent, otherwise I wouldn’t do it. I’m not doing it for any other reason. I like winning.
  • Donald Trump • Suggesting he would pull a Ross Perot and run for president independently if he doesn’t win the GOP nomination. With a little Charlie Sheen at the end. Oh God. Will ol’ Sideshow Don quit it? source

Politics: Newt Gingrich: Sorry for the confusing presidential announcement

  • Did anyone else find the rollout of Newt Gingrich’s presidential plans to be a tad confusing? If so, Newt agrees with you. “It (the roll-out) led to unfortunate confusion,” Gingrich said yesterday. “I wish we had been a little more structured last week. But I don’t take it as a very serious problem.” Newt’s defense of his work during the 1995 shutdown was timed kinda weirdly and gave opponents a good talking point. Of course, it didn’t help that Fox News added their own wrinkle to the mess. But on the other hand, Newt did in fact prove us wrong, so we guess that’s worthy of some credit. source

Politics: Fox News kills Newt, Santorum contracts over presidential plans

  • This had been contemplated from the start. This is Fox policy, this is the announcement that is being made today.
  • Fox News’ Brett Baier • Explaining why Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum, each of whom are running for president, just had their contracts suspended while they consider presidential runs. Sixty days from now, if they actually plan to run, their contracts get terminated. So … wait. There are a bunch of other folks on Fox News’ payroll in the same boat. Like, you know, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, who have basically used their entire careers on Fox News as one long presidential pre-campaign. And they’re not getting ditched yet, simply because they haven’t done their presidential exploratory committees? Wuuh? Fox News has some very strange policies about what constitutes “considering presidential runs.” source
