I think part of Newt fancies himself as the next William Jennings Bryan, Lance.

You make an interesting point that he's in it for the marketing opportunities. Hadn't thought of him that way before. You're probably right. He's in the same category with Limbaugh, Coulter, etc. I don't believe they believe half of what they say. Their schtick is designed to fill their coffers. Nothing more, nothing less.

He's slimy. He solicits money for himself and others in letters in which he is called "Speaker Gingrich." He is disgusting. If Gingrich passed out on the sidewalk in front of me, I would rather use a dog turd to move him aside than actually touch him. After all, you can wash dog turds off, but I think a Gingrich stain might last forever.

A historian reads Gingrich's doctoral dissertation.

Funny that he thought you could tell the story of education in the Congo using Belgian sources.

Wonder if he's read King Leopold's Ghost (to be fairer than he deserves, it was published after his dissertation)?
