HYBRIS | Han har höga tankar om sig själv. Han älskar att kalla sig historiker. Och jämföra sig med Charles de Gaulle, Ronald Reagan och Margaret Thatcher.

Även om Pat Oliphants teckning publicerades innan Newt Gingrich seger i South Carolina har den blivit aktuell igen efter förlusten i Florida.

Timothy Stanley, historiker på universitetet i Oxford, skrev på CNN:

It’s no great surprise that Gingrich lost Florida. He was dead from the moment that he clammed up in the Florida debates — and the millions that Mitt Romney poured into the state in negative ads didn’t help either. A lesser man would be crushed by this result. But Gingrich isn’t just a man. He’s a visionary, a historian, the inventor of supply side economics, a space marine and a latter-day Casanova. I’m getting all this off the back of one of his DVDs (just kidding).

[…]

In short, just about the only thing that will propel Gingrich through to the national convention is ego. But that ego is large enough to have a gravitational pull of its very own — so don’t expect to see Newt stop now.
