Newt Gingrich needs the zeal of a mob, all demagogues do. That's what he got and played to in South Carolina and what he is basing his whole campaign on, hoping that few voters will look at all his shortcomings.
Gingrich: ‘Wrong’ for NBC to Prohibit Audience Clapping at Debate - By Katrina Trinko - The Corner - National Review Online: "UPDATE: I called up the Commission on Presidential Debates, which handles the general election debates, and they confirmed that audience participation has not been allowed in the past in debates, and will not be allowed this cycle either. So, if Gingrich is the GOP nominee, he’ll have to face a silent audience during his debates with the President unless the rules are changed."
Nothing like a sober, silent, rational and reasoning audience, to put the chill in a demagogue's words.
