Return of the politically living dead

Back in January, a lot of political experts said Newt Gingrich was dead to the world because he had screwed up so royally in his campaign and he had burned all of his bridges to medialand.

They virtually promised we would never have to hear him again.

But Driftglass, of the Professional Left Podcast, said this:

1. David Gregory will continue to pay the vig on whatever unholy debt he has incurred with Newt Gingrich by letting Newt tread the “Meet the Press” boards whenever he chooses and spout whatever happy-horseshit he wishes under Gregory’s iron-clad guarantee that Newt will NEVER be asked any tricky or embarrassing follow-up questions.

Just to reiterate, here’s the podcast for April 27 of this year. Go to around the 64 minute mark. Driftglass essentially says “Newt shall return,” because the Sunday talk shows are corrupt.

So, guess what the promo was on “Meet the Press” this weekend:

Gingrich and O’Malley discuss 2012 strategies and statistics

This confirms where I should be getting my political analysis from. It’s not from NBC.
