Air Poot: Ready to Crash and Burn?
Rethuglican Presidential candidate and "classic rental politician" Newt "Poot" Gingrich is clearly enjoying his moment in the spotlight as this week's Rethug front-runner. He shouldn't get too comfy in his front-runner position, though. Why?
In just a few days, Poot has
-- said a secular America was the root of all evil;
-- said Occupy demonstrators should "take a bath" and "get a job";
-- expressed his disdain for child labor laws, calling them "stupid";
-- called for private retirement accounts as an alternative to Social Security (reviving a Dumbya non-starter); and
-- tried to b.s. around the fact that he was a well-paid lobbyist ("historian") for Freddie Mac -- the bane of wingnuts - as well as for the drug companies.
Looks like Air Poot is taking on more baggage the more he opens his fat mouth. As was recently remarked, Poot is a stupid man's idea of what a smart man sounds like.
