The Brotherhood of Extraordinary Dickweeds

As he is wont to do, future Iowa Caucus second-place at best finisher, Newt Gingrich has a tendency to say rather stupid things in an extra dickish manner — how dare a day go without him dropping a verbal deuce:

We’ve had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs and are historically part of the Arab community and they had a chance to go many places. And for a variety of political reasons we have sustained this war against Israel since the 1940s.

Of course, the United States has long stood in theory for a people’s right to self-determination (as long as they aren’t commies) including the Palestinians, both Republican and Democratic Presidents.

But who cares, there are votes to get.

And there are many in the GOP more than willing to go along with the moronic talking point de jour.

I jumped up out of my chair and cheered for Newt when he said what he said about Palestine. — Rudy Giuliani

I hope Bernie Kerik didn’t hurt himself when he was knocked off Rudy’s lap during visitation.

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 .
