NEWT….I’ve been told a number of times that, movement conservative though he may be, Newt Gingrich is at least a serious person driven by serious ideas. Light years better than pure partisan animals like Tom DeLay and Karl Rove, for example.

Well, he might be better than DeLay and Rove (YMMV of course), but there’s no way you can read this and tell me that you still think he’s a serious person. I really hope nobody ever tells me this again.
