The Attack Of the Salamanders II #22 - The Unholy Ghost
Comment: With LYING Palin (is she still stealing cloths?) leading the pack of Presidential hopefuls, and not even committing to being in the race and with Romney second and Newt completely out of the picture you might well wonder why I'm continuing this series.
Have I single handedly taken him out of the race?
Not too awfully likely.
But we'll see how "out of the race" he really is when (ahem..) god starts working in mysterious ways again, eh?
Mysterious like out of the picture then to suddenly in first place? (He's probably working the churches, a vast and speedy political network of tax exempt racists and dyslexic superstitious wannabe plutocrats.) Mysterious, like all the exit polls are wrong? Mysterious like the underdog gets more votes than ballots cast?
Stuff like that.
Now we're getting to the almost-news part.
And here's todays exciting redundant episode of the rerun of the ghastly review of Newt's previous good works. [In the other posts in this series we mostly covered what America missed when they watched OJ's trial.]
1995 Gingrich examines the United States' handling of the conflict in Bosnia and falls back on a familiar refrain: "The UN acts totally impotently and undermines the morale of every law-abiding democracy on the planet. This is the worst performance by the democracies since the 1930s."
1996 Gingrich applies the same analogy to President Clinton's policies in the Middle East, in a speech to the Center for Security Policy: "The democracies are in a greater danger than they have been at any time since [British Prime Minister] Stanley Baldwin lied to the English people about the Luftwaffe and Hitler's Germany."
1998 Gingrich steps down as Speaker, amid ethics complaints and rumors of an extramarital affair. He frames his decision in pragmatic terms: "I'm willing to lead, but I'm not willing to preside over people who are cannibals."
1998 Gingrich divorces Marianne. A later Esquire profile offers a glimpse of the last days, from Marianne's point of view:
Gingrich just kept saying she was a Jaguar and all he wanted was a Chevrolet. "'I can't handle a Jaguar right now.' He said that many times. 'All I want is a Chevrolet.'"
