remember one thing about Newt

I said over a year ago this guy would be the nominee.

One thing to remember about Newt that scares the hell out of me...he can and will lay claim to Rayguns legacy.

These motherfuckers worship raygun like a fucking God and he is going to use that.

This motherfucker is dangerous...don't take him lightly.

1. The fiery trash Newt talks can be intoxicating to some

as it was with Hitler. He's mega-dangerous to not only the country but the world.

3. Nostalgia's pathetic. America's predicament calls for a JFK, not a Reagan.

4. I agree

BUT...the right worships Reagan and Newt can claim his part in that past.

6. Some RW pundit (Coulter?) said that a Reagan [auto]biography mentioned Newt once in passing.

Not that facts will stop Newt's ego from claiming an out-sized role for itself to try to play the nostalgia vote.

Newt actually became prominent during the Clinton era not the Reagan era.

5. he's not just a narcissist -- he's a megalomaniac

I'd like very much to see a psychological profile of him. And it can be done without interviewing the subject -- the CIA does it all the time of world figures.

7. Newt isn't a player, he just talks a lot...

Raygun had a way of "lubing" up his victims before screwing them over. Newt on the other hand; people can see that prick coming from a mile away.

8. I remember the last Republican to run against a (personally) popular Democrat and...

try to lay claim to the past as the best way to unlock the future.



Gingrich's heyday is as far away as Dole's was in '96, and he's far, far less popular a person. He's not a blast, but a wet fart from the past.
