Newt the faux populist

I think it's a little premature to conclude that Newton Gingrich is going to be the Rightican nomminy, but it's still worth noting that he's obviously adopting an anti-elite, pseudopopulist framing, in contrast to Romney's more reassuring, professional manager-is-what-we-need message. (Which is rich, considering he's an ultimate insider, who has lived in Washington since 1978). If Pres. Obama ends up running against Gingrich, he had better work up his pro-99% real populist creds and have them in line and ready to go for the general election.
