Likely to be trounced in today’s Florida primary, Newt Gingrich is looking for a miracle in the Republican presidential campaign. Just in the nick of time, riding to the rescue is the co-chairman of Newt’s Tennessee campaign—drum roll please
—Stacey Campfield! If this state’s Republican voters hate gay people—and there’s abundant evidence for this in the actions of their heroes in the legislature—then Gingrich should campaign all over Tennessee with Campfield and roll to a reinvigorating victory on Super Tuesday.
And if Campfield’s homophobia isn’t enough to put Newt over the top, Gingrich could bring along the co-leader of his Tennessee campaign, our very own Prophet of Doom, Rep. Tony Shipley. In his disgust for gay people, Shipley takes a backseat to no one. You might recall that a couple of years ago, he warned God will punish Tennessee in some hideous way for letting same-sex couples adopt unwanted orphans.
