There was an interesting call from a woman listener on Rush today. She said she hasn’t decided who to vote for yet, and compared it to dating a bunch of guys to try to find the right one. Newt is the old boyfriend who she had written off after the Pelosi/global warming thing and other stuff. Then he shows up at your front door with flowers and a new sports car and talks you into going for a ride. You find yourself remembering what you liked the first time, how he made you laugh and the good times you had (like the Contract With America, balanced budget, welfare reform), and start to think maybe he wasn’t so bad after all. She was kind of funny, but also made a good case.
“Contract With America, balanced budget, welfare reform”
How soon (some of us) forget .... of course, Newt didn’t have THAT much to do with it all.....hmmmphhh.
Did she talk about what happens next?
She goes out with the guy and then marries him. Uh-huh. The day after the wedding she sees new hubby reaching across the aisle to play footsie with her old nemesis. She wakes up screaming: WHAT WAS I THINKING?? NOW I REMEMBER WHY I DROP-KICKED THIS LOSER!!
