With Iowa getting as sticky as pine tar for him, Gingrich says he would consider Palin as a running mate

I guess you fight the dragon any way you can.

With his numbers in Iowa disappearing like the morning dew, a sense of dread inside Newt Gingrich must be rising like summer heat off two-lane blacktop.

So he has yanked the cork out and let it flow.

Gingrich said he would consider picking Sarah Palin as a running mate or perhaps a cabinet secretary if he wins the White House.

You would think a guy with a brain that whirs like a giant Transformer would know better.
