With 21 campaign events scheduled this week, persistent Republican hopeful Newt Gingrich does not appear willing to appease those who want him out of the presidential race.
Norman Podhoretz, neocon par excellence and three years shy of his 80th birthday, has lost nothing of his fire and passion. If he has nothing but contempt for Europeans — "no readier to lift a finger to prevent a second Holocaust than they were the first time around" — he is filled with nothing but hope and praise for George W.
