Conservative Voters, It's Time to Give In to Your Inner Rebel

My new Politico column is up.  Here's the teaser:

Newt's not the safe choice for Republicans to make, but he may be our Goldwater. Sure, the "adults" won't like him -- too much personal baggage from his speakership in the 1990s and his bombastic congressional career before that. They will tell you to take your vitamins, open a savings account, get good grades and vote for one of the big three. The adults will tell you that this election is "the most important election in history," and after all, "the next president will likely get several Supreme Court picks."
