Youve Got to be Kidding Me

Wisconsin Republicans brought former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich to Milwaukee yesterday apparently to both cheerlead and pontificate.  He was also there to promote his new book, “Real Change” which is a strange title for a political has been yapping about making English the official American language.  That hardly sounds like change, it sounds like a 20 year old page out of the same old conservative playbook.

The Badger Herald also reported that Gingrich commented on the Democratic Presidential primary, attacking his old political foes the Clintons.  Regarding the recent disputes between Hillary and Obama, Gingrich said, “the Clintons have built a mean machine.”  That takes some nerve coming from a man that exemplified mean while he was in Congress.  This is the same guy that was right in the middle of the witch hunts fronted by Ken Starr.  The fact that he did this while having his own moral failings is an infamous part of the Gingrich record. 

When reading the reports of his visit, I found myself repeating the same comment over and over, “You’ve got to be kidding me!”
