Go ahead admit it you can't take your eyes off of repulsive Newt Gingrich
January 24, 2012 and the wreck that is American democracy has arrived in warmer climes and believe me I'm not talking about Boston's fifty degree temperatures. The Republicans don't believe in global warming or even science for that instance, unless the US military already has it and which case they probably got it from Space Gnomes or something more easily explained than Science. The travelling show is moving south, almost as far south as you can go without bumping into Cuba and Mr. Castro, and I'm not just hinting at the Occupy Miami encampments around the city.
Admit it. The politician that you just can't take your eyes off of is Newt Gingrich. Mr. Gingrich accepts the fact that that he's pond scum but will then quickly to point out all his opponents' faults. He's the fat guy who tells people they really need to lose weight. Now that's chutzpah. There is nothing too low for this repugnant Republican to grovel down to. His every breath is a hypocritical contradiction but who are you going to believe his word or a Google search engine. God has forgiven him which washed away everything repulsive he has ever said or will ever say. It has allowed him from limiting how much he wants to talk about his over sized his highly profitable historian fees and his over sized speaking fees. Really does Newt Gingrich have anything the public really wants to hear? When Newt has to take things to the lowest denominator his eyes twinkle, a surly grin comes over his professorial demeanor and he launches into a tirade about black kids needing to be forced to work as janitors and how they need to get rid of food stamps like starvation breeds character. It's forward thinking ideas like that and other forward thinking statements that rarely raise their head in the post-Appomattox world. Who else but Newt would say when asked about his extramarital affairs -"how dare you...how dare you...have you no shame. Then he can point out that this is why good people don't run for president, like he's a good person. He doesn't say they don't run because jack asses who cheat on their wives keep trying to impeach them while they're doing it.
While now Newton Gingrich has just been given South Carolina after it was purchased for him for only five million dollars by a casino owner who appeared to have nothing else to do with his money other than buy a slightly used state. It's like these shadowy super pac titans do battle on a whole different plane slaying each other like an untruthful Poseidons and Zueses. Meanwhile the little South Carolinian troglodytes - "yeah blacks should be janitors, Newt put Fox analyst Juan William in his place, or the other egg heads continue to roll over on reflex and show our boy's their stomaches." These troglodytes who support Newt continue to think the only way to freedom is by doing exactly what he he wants. Sweet Jesus.
One Mitton Romney is upset. He was told he could have South Carolina and somebody else bought it right out from under him, in a post-MLK clearance sale, and now Mittons is stuck sharing the stage with a human troll. And now Mrs. Las Vegas Casino Owner has decided she'd like to buy a state too, plopping down five million on Florida. It's the old adage, what do you get for people who have everything: South Carolina and Florida.
My only regret is that the late HL Mencken didn't live long enough to witness this train wreck on steroids. Meanwhile Gingrich has staked out a position to the right of Simon Legree and Chilean Dictator Pinochet. There is no way that Santorum and Paul can to stake a more extreme position unless they accuse their opponent of being soft on human sacrifice and claim that they fail to realize that life begins at the conception of a wet dream.

3. May I
Quote that Menken thing?
We are witnessing the implosion of a major American Political party.
That Mr. Obama is just as deeply in the pockets of American business is a subject for another thread...

FWIW, I do regret that Mr Mencken - along with a couple others - is not around to share his observations with us.
