Oh wow. Okay, um, yeah, so Newt Gingrich won the South Carolina primary in what is becoming a relentless journey to the GOP nomination. Kinda shocking, but whatever.
Soon after polls closed on Saturday, Newt was declared the winner with Mittens tailing in second place and Santorum and Paul falling far behind.
In Newt's victory speech, he told
his minions the crowd:
"Thank you to everyone in South Carolina who decided to be with us in changing Washington. We are optimists about the future.
President Obama is a president so weak that he makes Jimmy Carter look strong."
Way to remain classy as always, Newt.
