Newt Gingrich is pounding Iowa hard for votes, but that's just typical of Gingrich, isn't it? He doesn't seem to understand that ranting and raving and kicking and screaming won't get him the support that he craves. The Gingrich campaign in Iowa seems more like psychological therapy for Gingrich than anything, a way for him to get out all the negative feelings.
The trouble is that the crazy, angry, flying off the handle approach seems to be getting Gingrich a lot of attention, and some strong support. Some voters seem to be drawn to Gingrich in some creepy way, attracted in spite of themselves to the insulting, abusive approach Gingrich takes to dealing with the American people.
Iowa is in a special position to stop Newt Gingrich from progressing any further, but it's getting down to the line. What can be done, and can it be done in time?
