A Trip Down Memory Lane with Newt Gengrich
A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH NEWT GINGRICH.... As tempting as it is to simply ignore the odd tirades of the disgraced former House Speaker, this latest gem from Newt Gingrich strikes me as special.

The former speaker of the House and possible 2012 presidential hopeful said Monday that some people on the left jumped too quickly to conclusions about accused gunman Jared Lee Loughner.

"(P)eople who would immediately scream about ethnic profiling, people who on the left have every possible incentive to never allow anyone to draw conclusions, suddenly say things that are just factually untrue," Gingrich said on Chicago's WLS radio station.

~snip~


Putting aside the madman's incoherent ideology, it's fascinating to see Gingrich chastise those who would dare rush to "draw conclusions" in the wake of a tragedy, making claims that are "factually untrue."

Indeed, let's take a quick stroll down memory lane with ol' Newt.

In 1994, just a few days before the midterm elections, a deranged woman named Susan Smith drowned her two young sons. Gingrich, at the time, made infanticide a campaign issue and publicly equated Smith's murders with the values of the Democratic Party. (...)

Five years later, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 people at Columbine High School. Gingrich insisted that American "elites" bore responsibility for the massacre. "I want to say to the elite of this country -- the elite news media, the liberal academic elite, the liberal political elite: I accuse you in Littleton ... of being afraid to talk about the mess you have made," Gingrich said (...)

In 2007, Seung-Hui Cho shot and killed 32 people at Virginia Tech. In response, Gingrich blamed liberals for supporting "situation ethics," (...)

Sure, Newt, tell us again how awful it is for political figures to rush to "draw conclusions" in the wake of a tragedy.

1. Not McVeigh, not Loughner, not Klebold or Harris, not Seung-Hui Cho nor Susan
Smith or any one of a hundred thousand or more other Americans who have taken lives in the past 50 years were Al Qaeda. Now what were the odds of that? We need to clean up our own backyard before we go chasing boogeymen in the dark.

2. Newtie Getrich, the moral leader of the conservanazis.
This is the same asshole that served his 1st wife divorce papers while she was in the recovery room from cancer surgery. This is the same asshole that had his butt in a bind for not supporting his children, if the articles I read about him are correct. This is the same asshole that was skanking a House page while proclaiming his greatness as leader of the House, while wife #2 was getting the shaft. BTW, Larry Flynt, Penthouse publisher and no fan of the conservanazis, gave him a choice. Resign or he would expose all of his adulterous affairs with high priced Washington whores and the page he was skanking(that he married after divorcing wife #2).


Yep, that POS has got something to say.

he can't erase all the stunts he's pulled or all the bu$hit he's put out. It's out there in the media.

So, I hope the sorry bastard, who has never had to work for a living, runs for the presidency for the conservanazis. he'll get trashed. Then, maybe he'll crawl into a hole and f*ck that up too.
