Morris: Walking dead conservatives getting in the way

Dick Morris in The Hill (good upgrade…. BTW, the unpublished RSS feeds have all the articles) argues that Romney and Gingrich, both "politically dead", are blocking the rise of a conservative:

Right-wingers who would pass the litmus test … face the need to climb over the political corpses of former Speaker New Gingrich (Ga.) and ex-Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney to make their case.

Now, I would argue that Mitt Romney’s money makes him more of a "Night of the Living Dead" kind of character than a "Dead Man Walking", but whatever.

You will all recall that people got excited about Frank Keating … who then endorsed John McCain. This is the thing that gives me pause about the Fred Thompson boomlet. Where will his money, support, staff, etc. come from?
