He is definitely going for the Romney votes.

And he is getting all the free press he wants. By Memrial Day, the NY Times is going to name Newt Man Of The Year.

I guess he figures it’s better to burn out than to fade away.

Gingrich is a somewhat amusing sideshow in this presidential race.

Gingrich has a problem of people being tired of hearing his know-it-all, ‘let my superior intellect and talking skills persuade you as I masterfully use my command of the English language and human psychology to bring it down to terms that you can understand at your everyman level’, lecturing voice.

Almost 30 years of that leaves not caring what he is going to say, we just want to escape him.

Newt suggesting that some illegal immigrants living in the United States “may have earned the right to become legal.”


Hmmm....

I agree.

That path is for the illegal to go back to his home country and file the necessary immigration paperwork with the US embassy located therein.

He should write a new book titled How to Implode Your Own Campaign Before It Even Begins.

It's embarrassing, and I did used to respect Newt, at least on the issues he was talking about in 2008. Now, he has to crawl back to TV and radio shows, hat in hand, to try and explain his recent comments. He should just pull an Obama, and act like a petulant child while Bibi lectures you on reality, which is what happened today in DC.

Gingrich is not running for potus. He is angling for an appointment at the Kennedy School of Government along with the rest of the also-rans and never-was's.

Wow, just when you thought Newt couldn’t sink any lower he shoots himself in the foot yet again. At this point he’s becoming a total joke.

Tomorrow's big topic from Newt: Why women shouldn't be allowed to vote.

Next week: Newt tells us how why dogs should be illegal.

With Herman Cain announcing in Atlanta tomorrow, Newt wants to make sure Cains gets every single Georgia vote I guess.

Is Newt’s wife a liberal? Go0ldwater and McCain suffered severe brain damage after marrying liberal women. I can’t think of any other ratiaonal explanation for Newt’s intellectual meltdown.

Any plan that allows previously-illegal immigrants to have permanent resident status must NEVER allow them to have the right to vote as the price they must pay for having violated our laws in the past.

newt is like a guy that throws a golf ball against a brick wall and has it ricochet back into his balls... only to catch his breath... and feeling that his superior intellect will protect him from further harm... throws the ball against the wall only to have it return and break out all of his teeth and black his eyes.

Fat little liberal bastard.

Newt is a dildo. Maybe I don’t have that correct. Maybe he has less utility than a dildo. No,no.no...I mean, maybe, a dildo has more intellectual value than newt? That’s not it either.

What is a newt? Of what value is it? How is it germaine? Is there a life after a newt? Could a newt be seriously passe? As in 1995?

Sleeping, more than occasionally, with liberal women will distort one’s reality.

Better, only, one-night-stands with sluts.

Not possible...a dildo is much different in that it might actually satisfy a woman.

What else can Newt do or say to make this week worse?

Some suggestions:

1. Use “Dancing Queen” as his ringtone CHECK
2. Hit on one of his campaign workers
3. Admit that he has always found Pelosi sexy
4. Agree with Obama on Israel
