Why so shocked?

Newt Gingrich in his own created alternative universe via Liz_Link at

It is nice to see Newt Gingrich called out for violating the commonly-agreed upon rules of acceptable flip-floppery. But really what is the surprise? The guy’s life is one unending series of flip flops. From calling out a guy for cheating on his wife while cheating on the wife he cheated on his first wife with; from getting a Speaker to resign for generating perks…only to later resign as Speaker in large part for generating perks for himself. The guy doesn’t just write dreadful alternative histories, he lives dreadful alternative histories.

I wonder, he keeps saying how sick America is, while simultaneously proclaiming his flesh is weak against her purple mountains and amber waves of grain*. When is he going to dump her for another country already?

*prose-style lifted from the literary works of Newt Gingrich.

Nuclear Waste Isn't Something We Can Trust To Texas Politicians



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
