Talk about telegraphing your next move

Good grief. Newt, just fucking announce you're running next year and get it over with.

Former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich hinted Tuesday that he may enter the 2008 presidential race.

And how long has the Newtster been "hinting"?

Gingrich said on "Good Morning America" that he will take a look at his resources after he completes a series of workshops for his new advocacy group American Solutions.

"Next Monday, my good friend and adviser Randy Evans will have a press conference and will outline a process for us to spend the next few weeks finding out whether or not there are enough resources to wage a serious campaign," Gingrich said.

What, your ego isn't enough of a reason? It didn't stop Alan Keyes from running for office for the forty-seventh time.

Speaking of American Solutions, it seems this is a real organization with its very own Web site These aren't just any old American Solutions. They're "American Solutions for Winning the Future." From the Web page:

We recently launched American Solutions for Winning the Future, a unique non-partisan organization designed to rise above traditional gridlocked partisanship, to provide real, significant solutions to the most important issues facing our country.

Newt Gingrich? Non-partisan? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!

At any rate, American Solutions is having some workshop September 27-29 down in Georgia. Clearly, Newt is trying to position himself as some sort of maverick GOPer. Little does he know that, Ron Paul notwithstanding, "maverick" and "GOPer" just don't go together these days.
