Energized and defiant, Newt Gingrich declared victory Tuesday night after decisively winning the Georgia primary, making the case that he was winning a fight for the soul of the Republican Party, his campaign’s third (and presumably final) surge right around the corner.

While most of the attention on Super Tuesday belonged to Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum, the two Republicans battling it out for delegates in 10 states, Gingrich had set a rather low bar for himself: win the state he represented in Congress for two decades, and position himself to do well in the Alabama and Mississippi primaries next week.

Newt’s 20 percentage point blowout in the Peach State may have demonstrated that his fanbase of older, white Americans sympathetic to the Tea Party movement is alive and well, but the candidate’s invectives against big money highlighted the desperate state the former House Speaker finds himself in.

“Wall Street money can be beaten by Main Street work,” Gingrich told a crowd of friends and supporters in Atlanta, referring to Romney, the private equity titan and former Massachusetts governor who is the preferred candidate of the financial sector.

Here’s the video, where Newt lambasts the “elite media” even more than usual:

He made sure to point out, however, the utter hypocrisy of our right-wing Supreme Court majority forcing women to have babies in times of massive economic insecurity. You know, like a freaking shortage of baby formula! But hey, it's all about worshipping the fetus and hating the actual child for these Taliban Republicans.
