Newt on Top

Giant Chinese Salamander or the Republican candidate for President

I don't think I have ever seen a sillier campaign season. Every few weeks somebody new shows up on top of the national polls for the Republican nomination. Meanwhile, always, simply always, Mitt Romney is stuck in second place with his 25%. This week it's Newt Gingrich.

It's not like Newt is a better man than Herm Cain. Cain just wanted to have multiple affairs, Newt succeeded. Newt isn't that much smarter than Rich Perry, he's just better at hiding the stupid (Here is a collection of dumb Newt quotes.).

Granted that Newt isn't wild-eyed Bachmann crazy but his does have something of the psychopath in him like when he suggested the Bush Administration should allow a few successful terrorist attacks to keep people on edge. Or there was the time when he said anyone opposed to congressmen taking bribes is a socialist.
The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument. ~ Newt Gingrich
Somewhere out there is this great country of ours there is a new Not Mitt waiting to be discovered and run from President. I can't wait to find out who it is.
