Crooks and Liars catches some of the wingnuts at Tea Party Nation blaming the fact that Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry can’t get on the primary ballot in Virginia on — of course — President Obama.
Mind you, the primary is controlled solely by the Virginia Republican Party. Obama had nothing at all to do with it. Besides, Obama would love to see Gingrich win Virginia and the whole nomination. The last thing he wants to see is the Gingrich campaign hampered.
The punchline to the whole thing is that Gingrich says he’s gonna mount a serious write-in campaign, which is not allowed in Virginia primaries. Good luck with that.
