Just a little food for thought inspired by Newt’s comments this morning to accompany the vid of her slicing and dicing the great Grayson/Frank salary grab of ’09. Gingrich:

“If the Republicans can’t break out of being the right wing party of big government, then I think you would see a third party movement in 2012,” Gingrich said Tuesday. The speech, to a group of students at the College of the Ozarks in Missouri, was recorded by Springfield TV station KY3…

“Remember, everything Obama’s doing, Bush started last year,” he said. “If you’re going to talk about big spending, the mistakes of the Bush administration last year are fully as bad as the mistakes of Obama’s first two, three months.”

Gingrich told the students that the current governmental system “is so sick, so out of touch and so arrogant that you’re going to have a nationwide rebellion at the polls of people in both parties who are just fed up.”

Notably, MM seems more irritated by the dozens of Republicans who crossed the aisle to vote for the AIG bonus tax and the 10 who backed Grayson/Frank — with Eric Cantor voting present(!) — than by the Democrats. I figure all it’ll take is one more push for amnesty by the GOP, which is a fait accompli given McCain’s poor showing with Hispanics last year, and she’ll be ready to embrace the new Atheist Libertarian Workers Party. One percent of the vote or bust!
