Gingrich: “I can no longer endorse Gregg Harper”


Conservative Blogging Legend, Nuke Gingrich has concluded that 3-term Congressman, Gregg Harper no longer deserves the endorsement and support of common-sense conservative voters in the MS-3rd district.

“He hasn’t accomplished anything, he hasn’t done anything, and given the opportunity to make a principled stand, he caved faster than a spelunker on meth,” said Gingrich, amid fragrant clouds of Macanudo smoke at his southwest Mississippi compound.

“I should have recognized the bait and switch when Harper gained the support of the slimy Trent Lott.  I suppose I’m the victim of my own optimism.  But no more.  Now that Harper has shown himself to be an insider-Trent Lott Republican instead of a Common-Sense Conservative, I have decided that I can no longer  support him.”

gregg-harper-ms3Gingrich’s endorsement in the 2008 Republican Primary was seen by some as a pivotal moment for the Harper campaign, as polls which had been trending for his opponent, shifted dramatically and decisively in Harper’s favor.  He won going away.  It was an old fashioned whoopin’.

“I questioned Harper’s vote last week to end the battle against Obamacare, and politely asked for a response.  To date, Harper has refused to provide any answer at all, other than to send out a Press release, chock-full of fluffy piffle.”

Gingrich has provided the Blog with a copy of the note he sent to the Congressman in response to Harper’s “explanation” for the surrender vote, entitled “A Responsibility to Govern.”

Dear Congressman Harper:
 
Please tell me. 
 
Did you read the Bill before you voted for it? 
 
I understand it was an eleventh hour vote responding to a real or imagined crisis (this seems to have become the standard operating procedure, hasn’t it?).
 
Did you question the special $2.9 billion sweet deal for Kentucky?
 
Wouldn’t it have been appropriate to offer a clean, two-day CR to allow the Bill to be read by the Members, and posted to the internet as has been promised previously?
 
A Responsibility to Govern, indeed! 
 
Sincerely,
 
Nuke Gingrich

CharlierossInterestingly enough, Gingrich’s old nemesis, The Club for Growth is making a splashy re-entry into Mississippi politics for the first time since 2008.  The CfG has endorsed a Primary challenger to veteran senator Thad Cochran.  Losing Gingrich’s support may provide an opening for the other recent favorite of The Club for Growth, Charlie Ross.   “I may have to go reconsider my position on CfG,” Gingrich painfully noted.

  1. Unh hunh. An underfunded Tea Partier ran against my Congressman in the primary. He’s been in office too long and is all comfy with the enemy but I figured that the Tea Partier would get smashed due to lack of funds and the worthless Dem would get in. I held my nose and voted for him.

    Since his vote was the same as what the Dem vote would have been, I see no reason to repeat this mistake.

    • a populist democrat could win this seat. but populist democrats are a dead species, except for those who rail against racism, sexism, homophobia, et al.

  2. We have our own problems here in Texas.
    The biggest problem is John Cornyn.

  3. Ol’Zak is gonna lose his endorsements, if he doesn’t learn to throw the ball away instead of taking a sack.
