Update on Adelson: I guess not


 I speculated over the weekend that Sheldon Adelson’s decision to fund Newt Gingrich’s SuperPAC was more about keeping his old friend viable and less about destroying Mitt Romney.

Umm, no. From the New York Times:

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Thanks to a $5 million donation from a wealthy casino owner, a group supporting Newt Gingrich plans to place advertisements in South Carolina this week attacking Mitt Romney as a predatory capitalist who destroyed jobs and communities, a full-scale Republican assault on Mr. Romney’s business background.
