Douthat: wingnuts think Gingrich will prove Obama's stupid.

I've been trying to figure out one aspect of Newt's resurgence, this belief by wingnuts that Newt will kick Obama's ass in the debates.

What do they care about debates, I thought. George W. Bush lost all three debates to Kerry, and fared only slightly better against Gore--and they spent 8 years telling us that they don't matter.

But Douthat is a native wingnut speaker and explains it to us: they're desperate to validate their belief that Obama's an idiot.
