Newton Succumbs To Warped Spacetime

… but it’s not clear whether or when Newtie will endorse Eins… er… Rmoney [sic]. Actually, to hear Benjy Sarlin of TPM tell it, Newt Gingrich is more like Schrödinger’s cat:

His candidacy neither dead nor quite alive (but mostly dead), the former speaker at least conceded he’d “reassess” his options after a loss in Delaware. On Wednesday morning, he came about as close as he could to conceding without going all the way, saying it was “very clear” at this point Romney would be the nominee and that he’d campaign this week as a “citizen,” per Fox News. “We’re working out the details of our transition, and we’ll have information for the press in the next couple days,” Gingrich said, according to ABC. Aides went even further, telling CNN that he’d officially drop out next week.

Bye-bye, Newt. Don’t let the door hit you in the butt…

    The campaign finance rules have changed things rhetorically, if not in reality. People now ‘suspend their campaign’ so they can continue to get money and spend it on their campaign related bills. Actually saying you are quitting ends up freezing your access to money, increasing your debt, and giving you no avenue to receive cash to pay it off.

    It’s weird, but that’s the way the system works.
