Dear Dr. Bones,

In an interview with Laura Ingraham, Newt Gingrich raised the possibility of creating an anti-Mitt Romney alliance with Rick Santorum.

First off, the fact that your first name also happens to be the moniker for my beloved city is irritating.
Second, a tip: hydrogen-filled dirigibles are easily felled – just a small flame penetrating the fabric envelope and oh the humanity!
Leroy von Hindenburg has vented a lot of the gas before it had a chance to catch fire. So, at any rate, claims the _Manchester Union-Basher_:
|GOFFSTOWN — Newt Gingrich raised a few eyebrows Wednesday when he said he’s not the man to turn the country around as the next President of the United States.|
“I’m not the person to do this,” he said.
His point, he said during a one-on-one interview at St. Anselm College with Charles Arlinghaus, president of the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy, was that no person could do it alone.
“I don’t ask you to just vote for me, because if you do, you’ll vote and say ‘OK, Newt’s in. I’m going home,’” Gingrich said. “What I ask people to do is to be with me … and let’s work side by side. This can only work as a movement.”
About "the humanity": her Grace the Duchess of Nicetynice is not my cup of Kool-Aid, yet it seems unworthy in those who drool of "intellectual foundations" not to offer some sort of reasoned account of why it is perfectly O.K. to gloat when Nazi dirigibles get their richly deserved comeuppance.
I seize on only one aspect of the snapshot Comrade Poster reproduces yet again. I presume it become an idol and icon of PopCult [*] because there are so many different different ‘narratives’ it can be pasted into. We started here from a reactionary pol, so I lapsed into considering the _Hindenburg_ event in its Anti-Fascist sense. But of course Luddietes have reason to adore as well, maybe the best reasons of all. And then there are the Yank Exceptionalists, bound to rejoice at any setback to attempts by Old Euros to put themselves on a par, innovationwise, with the race of Edison and Burbank and ... and Gates and Jobs. On top of all that, I am told that a big fire of any sort is always welcome to readers of local news into the MacL@@han Tube.
With all that arrayed against them, I fear "the humanity" and Her Grace of Nicetynice are iunlikely to win this particular skirmish. Precisely because we nasty gloaters are almost certain to prevail, there is no need to resort to the shabby expedient of pretending we did not hear the objection.
[*] Over chez G@@Gle, I count thirty-five (35.0) aviation items, most of them pretty inflammatory, before one catches sight of the Field Marshall and President. To be sure, when one finally gets to him, the old boy *does* look less senile and ‘wooden’ than usual, looks almost as if he had actually been a member of "the humanity."
Nevertheless, given so vast a quantitative disproportion, it is pretty silly to deny that Inhumanism has won this round.
