I thought his son committed suicide because he was a Sodomite?This article was linked on a thread yesterday:

Did Newt Gingrich Out Brit Hume’s Dead Gay Son?

Take it with a healthy dose of skepticism, but Brit's bitter attitude toward Newt is very obvious.

Exactly, he should have said the collapse the he inherited was cause by Frank, Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and other democrats threatening banks that wanted to make qualifications for mortgages more relaistic ( like having a job)and other bad decisions... So he inherited a mess his created and he made it worse !! That’s what this tool should have said.

You don’t think Sodomites commit suicide because they can’t live with their perversion?

Put your conspiracy kook away unless you have proof Newt had anything to do with it. And you don’t.

I mean he can serve presidents, govern a state, serve in elected capacity. He is a good utility infielder.

I do not endorse the quality of his conservatism and I have already made my observations about his forensic ability. He won't hit 300, he won't get a golden glove, but he probably won't make any errors either even as he plays several positions. He certainly won't hit with power-which is the talent the nation needs most of all in this inning.

He is the perfect Rino who excites David Gergen and leaves the bleachers looking for the hot dog vendor.

The facts seem to be out there, it’s whether or not they are true. I don’t know why no one brought up this story before. Joe Scarborough wrote about it in a book in 2004 and everyone ignored him because he’s not the most reliable person, but now so many normally reliable people are believing it.

I just heard about it this afternoon and did a search and it’s everywhere, including on Lucianne Goldberg’s site.

We are in agreement, kind of.

Full Disclosure: Baseball statistician-god Bill James once referred to the "Mendoza line" after Mario Mendoza, who hit only .203 ; obviously not a good batting average.

I could do it and so could most people. The trick is to edit the speech down to half the size and slow down. Pause a few times. And say it like you actually mean it, not like you are reading meaningless syllables. They could stand a person next to the camera and have him SAY it to that person, not just read.

“Secret War” on the Military Channel was excellent again tonight. The episode was “The Real 007”, and it profiled a Yugoslavian double agent who may (was IMO) the inspiration for Ian Flemming (Flemming “observed” him).

It’s being replayed at 1:00 am, Eastern.

Highly recommended!

I’m pretty sure whoever he couldn’t buy off was threatened or blackmailed...

Everyone looks like they think he’s batshit crazy but there’s nothing they can do about it.

He says the same old stuff all the time. It was nothing but a canned stump speech.

He talked about new agencies and more oversight one hour and made noise about smaller more efficient government in the next.

He is insulting our intelligence and I don’t really think even half of these people clapping really believe anything he’s saying any more than we do.

No I haven’t heard the story, whatever it may be. So why don’t you tell us why we will all be hating Gingrich. Any viable republican candidate, so far, has been destroyed, one way or the other. Might as well finish the job.

Here's the story.

IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE.

Furthermore. I have, personally, along with millions of other Americans, heard Brit Hume explain on live television, that his son shot himself when he was confronted by a police officer who pulled him over on a traffic violation and the son was in possession of illegal drugs.

I'm sure the program is archived somewhere.

Leni,

Great job, right on the money. Do these idiots not get it, the America of our forefathers is gone if we have 4 more years of this socialist. One of the largest industries in America, health care will be under the control of the government. Every socialist/commie playbook ever written insists that government control of health care is an essential step in the conversion from a free enterprise system to a socialist one.

These guys are acting like it’s just another election, if they lose maybe they win in 2016. It’s incredible how they do not understand that the very existence of the America is hanging in the balance.

Supposedly, Sandy Hume and NY Congressman Bill Paxon were having an affair. Paxon was one of the ringleaders of the revolts against Gingrich and Dick Armey at the time. In February 1998, Hume killed himself, then a couple of days later Paxon resigned from his seat and left public life. The rumor was that Armey had threatened to out Hume, which led to Hume’s suicide and Paxon’s sudden resignation. Joe “Dead Intern in the Office” Scarborough is one who’s publicly made this accusation.

Recently, Paxon’s wife former Rep. Susan Molinari may have suggested to the Miami Herald that Newt was suspected of being involved in the threat to out Hume and her husband’s homosexual affair as well.

Those are the Cliff’s Notes.

Fine bunch of people we have running the country down there. What a sewer.

Absolutely these people are desperate. They have been working for over 50 years to reshape America as a socialist state, where the government has control over the most essential things in our lives. They only need 4 more years.

If they feel Gingrich is going to stop them, they will kill him if they can. He needs to really be careful. Those threats are not empty. The media over the years has created a large group of people who loathe Gingrich, and a number of them are unbalanced.

I kinda’ thought Scott Walker would be a good one - he’s living the Obama/Union Thugs nightmare in WI and making lemons out of lemonade by putting conservative policies into practice ... with success. He also has put the people in his state ahead of his own political fortunes ..... the antithesis of Obummer.

You are spot on with your observation that these are not times for Luke warm presentations of the kind served up tonight by Mitch Daniel.

Quite obviously, the boomlet about bringing Mitch Daniels into the primaries at this point is a desire not shared by Mitch Daniel himself, or at least not shared by his wife. that is because the speech he gave tonight was not a campaign speech for Mitch Daniels, it was a bland response designed more with maintaining neutrality among the candidates than with opposing Obama in mind.

In any event, the whole idea of some white Knight stepping into the primary contest at this point is so remote and improbable as not to be worthy of serious discussion.
