New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd summed up bigot and blowhard Newt Gingrich in one of the most brutal columns ever published. The best part is that everything she said is true:
Newt Gingrich’s mind is in love with itself.
It has persuaded itself that it is brilliant when it is merely promiscuous. This is not a serious mind. Gingrich is not, to put it mildly, a systematic thinker.
His mind is a jumble, an amateurish mess lacking impulse control. He plays air guitar with ideas, producing air ideas. He ejaculates concepts, notions and theories that are as inconsistent as his behavior.
He didn’t get whiplash being a serial adulterer while impeaching another serial adulterer, a lobbyist for Freddie Mac while attacking Freddie Mac, a self-professed fiscal conservative with a whopping Tiffany’s credit line, and an anti-Communist Army brat who supported the Vietnam War but dodged it.
Ouch….I couldn’t have said it better myself. What the hell are so-called “family values” conservatives thinking by flirting with this hypocritical clown?
