Pretty dumb line from the allegedly 'smart, brilliant' candidate


So ... Politico is reporting this:

Newt Gingrich is trying to challenge the notion that Mitt Romney is the most electable candidate in the GOP field.

"Why would you want to nominate the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama?" Newt asked a standing-room only crowd in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

For being such a supposedly astute historian, it seems strange that Newt -- the so-called "real Reagan Republican" in this race -- would forget (or expect us to forget) that in 1976 Reagan lost to the guy who lost to Carter and then turned around and won the nomination and election in 1980.
