We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Gingrich ain't much of a political prospect, but the man has always known strategy. Still something weird about a boy who wanted to grow up to be Speaker of the House...smart, yes, but still suspect. Dead on with the NY23, though.
I'll never trust Gingrich. No matter how smart he is. Too many lies out of his mouth, to the public, and to his wife. Not that he isn't a smart guy. Just sometimes I don't give a shit how smart you are... you're still an asshole, and I'll ignore you even if you're right.
Quite agree, Newt's role is not run for Pres but to play counter-point to Axelrod and Emanuel, a role he is perfectly suited to play and, other than Roger Stone, about the only GOP'er who is up to playing more dirty than those two creeps. Newt is a perfect counter-point to Axelrod and Emanuel even though he fancies himself a policy wonk.
