Poot's Bad Reviews
Sam Stein looks at the right wing establishment's disdain for rental politician and child labor advocate Newt "Poot" Gingrich: from the William F. Buckley rag National Review, to the neocon Weekly Standard, to columnists George "Quill" Will and Charles "Kraphammer" Krauthammer, the welcome mat isn't out for Poot. Even the Fux Channel is cranky about the Historian of K Street.
Whether it's Poot's ability to turn on a dime for a dime, his unethical behavior as Speaker, or his shoddy personal life, with Poot, it's "what you see is what you get." Wingnuts, having run through most of their village idiots vying for the Rethug nomination, might figure that Poot's their man regardless.
