Newt Gingrich


I know we were talking about the end of the world coming in 2012 if George Will were right (no, not about baseball) and it's now true that half of Will's dynamic duo is out of the picture, but oh, my (via Weasel Zippers)...

And in related news (heh):

No Newts or other lizards

There are lots of valid reasons to reject Newt Gingrich as a potential 2012 candidate for president, but here's one with a nearby NYS connection.  According to The Lonely Conservative, Newt has:

...a propensity for serious lapses of judgment coupled with a disdain for the concerns of what should be his core-constituent base.

Case in point:  His endorsement of RINO extraordinaire Dede Scozzafava during the campaign for the special election for the NY 23rd Congressional District leading up to the mid-term 2010 elections. Without dredging up all the details of that sordid affair, suffice it to say that most republicans, especially conservatives and Tea Party members, both in and out of this voting district, were very much displeased that Mr. Gingrich chose to throw his considerable weight behind a liberal democrat posing as a moderate republican...

Ah, yes, how soon we forget.
