That guy would be SO damn easy to defeat in the general election, we could run Kucinich/Sharpton and win. (NO offense guys, love you both)

Some wonderful quotes from Newt:

"If the Soviet empire still existed, I'd be terrified. The fact is, we can afford a fairly ignorant presidency now. "

"A mere forty years ago, beach volleyball was just beginning. No bureaucrat would have invented it, and that's what freedom is all about. "

"I'm not a natural leader. I'm too intellectual; I'm too abstract; I think too much."

"The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument. "

"I think one of the great problems we have in the Republican Party is that we don't encourage you to be nasty. We encourage you to be neat, obedient, loyal and faithful and all those Boy Scout words, which would be great around a campfire but are lousy in politics."

All free people stand on Reagan's shoulders. His principled policies proved that free markets create wealth, that the rule of law sustains freedom, and that all people everywhere deserve the right to dream, to pursue their dreams, and to govern themselves.

"We have 6,000 years of written historical experience in the Judeo-Christian tradition. We know the rules that work. We know that learning, study, working, saving, and commitment are vital. That is why Republicans would replace welfare with work."

Some of his better deeds and strengths:

-Served his wife with divorce papers while dying of cancer in the hospital.

-Was cheating on one wife with a House aide while the Clinton impeachment was underway.

-Corrupt as shit.

-He took a $4.5 Million book advance he was forced to return.

-To wit, he had 84 ethics violations filed against him during his stay in Washington and paid over $300K in fines to Congress. That's quite a jacket.

-Hilarious verbal gaffes. His class on the difference between men and women detailing how men are designed to hunt giraffes and other gems are so damn funny, in addition to being credibility destroyers.

-Architect of a failed revolution. He predicted the Repukes would pick up 30 seats in 1998 under his leadership. They instead lost five, the poorest results in 34 years for any party not in control of the White House, according to wiki.

-Despised by woman generally. So, that's not good since women got the vote. During the impeachment, he had a 28% approval rating among all likely voters.

All I can say is RUN NEWT RUN!!!!
