Newt Gingrich's plan to win the presidency:
 The convention is going to be brokered because he'll stay in the race and prevent Romney from getting enough delegates to clinch the nomination.
 Romney delegates will flip and vote for Newt... because he is the real conservative.
 Newt will win the nomination and destroy Obama with his superior teleprompter-less debating skills (and promise of 2.50 a gallon gas).
 President Newt will ensure economic prosperity for all and be elected to a second term. (during which we will colonize the moon).
Failing that he will write more books, produce more videos, and charge higher speaking fees. All his followers will buy these products (and pay to hear him speak), as they will be eager for the inside scoop as to how they can survive the coming Obama/or Romney economic (or perhaps literal) apocalypse.
