All the Newt’s That’s Fit to Print


I do not want Newt Gingrich to be the Republican nominee. I’ve already said I Can Forgive You Newt, But I Still Can’t Vote For You.

Now, having said that, if Newt is the nominee, I will vote for him. It would be a struggle to enthusiastically support him, but I will vote for the alternative to Barack Obama.

But Newt is getting all of the attention right now as the front runner, so he’s the one everyone is talking about.

Even Nancy Pelosi got into the act saying she was anxious to tell stories.

Giggling Pelosi Says She Has Dirt on Newt

“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” Pelosi said. “I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.”

Then apparently realizing that she’d be breaking the House Rules to talk about Newt breaking the House rules, she retreats…

Pelosi: Um, Actually, I Don’t Have Newt Dirt …

Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, suggested that her comments have been misconstrued beyond the leader’s intent.

As someone who fancies himself a powerful intellectual, Mr. Gingrich often seems unable to resist a new idea. That has led him over the years to be intrigued by stem-cell research, a cap-and-trade system to fight global warming and an individual mandate as a way to help overhaul the health-care system.

The Tea Party cannot support Gingrich without betraying its core principles. But the movement also cannot disclaim him once he is the Republican nominee.

Finally, The Washington Post has a graph of Gingrich’s campaign debts.

I’ve said it before, I think Gingrich is brilliant. Probably the smartest of the bunch.

But, if he’s the nominee, say hello to another four years of President Obama.
