This was worth a laugh:


Newt Gingrich got a not-so-nice welcome here today. 

 As he was getting ready to leave a speaking engagement Dubuque resident Russell Fuhrman approached him in the lobby of the Holiday Inn: 

 "Get out now before you make a bigger fool of yourself," Fuhrman said directly to Gingrich.

I don't know. I read this Mother Jones piece last night. I think Newt lost any sense of shame decades ago:

"The important thing you have to understand about Newt Gingrich is that he is amoral," says [former friend L.H.]Carter. "There isn't any right or wrong, there isn't any conservative or liberal. There's only what will work best for Newt Gingrich. 

"He's probably one of the most dangerous people for the future of this country that you can possibly imagine. He's Richard Nixon, glib. It doesn't matter how much good I do the rest of my life, I can't ever outweigh the evil that I've caused by helping him be elected to Congress."
