Much how when you have to open the door to your bathroom, spray air freshener and even light some candles in an effort to get rid of the stench you just flushed down the toilet, it seems that no amount of flushing or candle lighting will get rid of Newt Gingrich.
But this just might finally get rid of him.
Seems the Newt
Wasn't Newt the headliner in 1994's mid-term elections that embarrassed Clinton & Company? Didn't he do it by being a "paragon" of virtuosity and character as it pertained to conservatism?
Newt Gingrich is the epitome of a hypocrite. He's a power-mongering, two-faced SOB who is riding the coattails of the Tea Party--even though he mocked them and derided them early on.
Back to the health care mandates. A few days ago, the Newt slammed the GOP for their "right wing social engineering" as it pertained to the health care overhaul and SUPPORTED Obama's mandate that every American must purchase health insurance.
Today we learn that Newt ditches mandates and changes direction once again.
This son of a bitch flip-flops more than John "Swift Boat" Kerry.
For the life of me, I do not know why Sean Hannity is still so enamored with this guy. Hannity is a smart, stand-up "do the right thing" kind of guy so it's hard for me to figure out what it is about the Newt that is so magnetizing to him. In fact, in many ways, the Newt is a polar opposite of Hannity.
I'm still not over what the Newt and Karl Rove did to some candidates in the 2010 election. Republican candidates.
In essence, penis-wrinkles like Newt Gingrich are what has gotten us to where we are now. Newt is tough as hell when he's on the sidelines and chastising present conservatives for not being tougher and acting like winners. But a lot of us remember when the Newt was an active member of Congress and had the balls of a neutered housecat.
Newt is in this for Newt. Not America. And sure as hell, not you and me.
Remember that at the ballot box.
