Gingrich Derangement Syndrome

While Bush Derangement Syndrome only effected those on the left, the right now has its own analog, Gingrich Derangement Syndrome. GDS apparently afflicts select right wing pundits, most everyone at NRO, and John Hinderaker at Powerline:

So, congratulations to Newt, and on to Florida. Let’s just pray that Barack Obama’s second term didn’t start today. If Gingrich does get the nomination, this may turn out to be a year in which Republicans more or less ignore the presidential race, ceding Obama his second term, and focus instead on trying to hold the House and, if possible, picking up a seat or two in the Senate, along with doing the best we can in state races where the wipeout at the presidential level doesn’t swamp all efforts to elect Republicans.

Now that is a full blown case of GDS.

I think we'll see more of this. Newt has many on the establishment right that fear him. Of course, the leftoids will go nuts if he's the nominee too...
