“The thing I find most disheartening of this campaign is the difficulty of talking about large ideas on a large scale, because the news media can’t cover it and candidly, my opponents can’t comprehend it.”–Newt Gingrich, March 14.
When large ideas just aren’t getting traction
And grand proposals somehow don’t bear fruit
Then you want the right-wing man of action
The guy who wears your party’s biggest suit.
He’s always had the media’s attention
Especially when he pokes them in the snoot.
It helps create some strong dramatic tension.
And casts him as a lovable old coot.
If you think a lunar base is neat-o
And maybe we should have one too on Pluto
Choose the guy who’s munching on a Frito
The one who casts a shadow big as Bluto.
Ever since they locked up Galileo
And Socrates was given hemlock root
Though maybe he should cut down on the mayo
There’s no one else whose mind is so acute.
When no one seems to get the vision thing which
Renders all your little concepts moot
Then you know it’s time to turn to Gingrich.
The biggest thinker out there now is Newt.
