Everything is Newt Gingrich’s fault

And I mean everything. Whatever veneer of civility existed in the US Congress was very deliberately extinguished in 1994 by Newt Gingrich when he instructed his caucus that their Democratic colleagues were no longer ‘the opposition’. They were ‘the enemy’.

After that, and after being tossed out by his own party just a few years later, and after a few more wives, and after a near bankruptcy or two, and after a vanity campaign for president, and after being hired by CNN – proving their irrelevance once again – to resurrect the reviled show Crossfire (perfect casting, I must say), comes now his call for John Kerry to resign as Secretary of State. Because climate change you know.

There’s no getting rid of this guy.

  1. So it’s all Gingrich’s fault because he spoke the truth? OK.


  2. What a shame that ol’ Newt didn’t win the presidency. By now we could be setting up that moon colony and getting ready to send a whole platoon of astronauts up there to crack open moon rocks.


    • Might have been, Jim, might have been. The Constellation program was enough of a special-interest and kick-back money pit to have been pushed forward. Hell! The ONLY reason Obama scrubbed it was that it funded his enemies. ๐Ÿ˜†

      But damn! I was really hoping for him to win it. I wan’t to be writing “President Newt” daily on my blog. Then I could have called the NSA the “Eye of Newt.”


  3. You Americans are fun. ๐Ÿ™‚
