"Sheriff on Deck!"
From the article:

The sheriff in charge of the jail is a man named Victor Hill, who took office on January 1, 2005. Hill wears a pencil moustache, clock-shaped Gino Franco cufflinks that actually tell time and a badge hanging from a chain around his neck. He stands 5-feet-5. Short men with power and the lust for more are inevitably likened to Napoleon, and in his 18 months as sheriff, Hill hasn’t done much to invalidate the comparison. On his first Monday in office, he summoned 27 employees to the jail on the pretense of reinstating them. Instead, he fired them. He assigned sharpshooters to watch over the proceedings as the sacked workers—most of whom had supported the outgoing sheriff that Hill had unseated—handed over their guns and badges.

"If Santorum, who actually managed to win several state contests despite being vastly outspent by Romney, is willing to acknowledge Mitt Romney’s victory, why can’t Newt? It reinforces the idea that Newt is a vain buffoon; someone whose self-regard has erased his ability to distinguish between perseverance and delusion."

"Newt’s fantasy scenario is that, with no clear winner, he rocks the convention floor in Tampa with a speech that’s frankly and fundamentally revolutionary. The GOP faithful will go wild, make Newt the GOP nominee, then head down to Ybor City to tattoo “#250gas” on their foreheads."
