At one point in my life I admired Newt Gingrich. Until. Until after the Contract With America went straight into the toilet. Then he scammed on his wife all those years ago. And now, the slug tries to get involved in so many things so he can put his name on it. Like the Tea Party. Newt Gingrich is an idiot.
For an allegedly smart man, Republican Presidential Candidate Newt Gingrich says and does some incredibly stupid things. He's such a poor manager of his own stories that it's a wonder how he was able to juggle so many mistresses over the years.
The latest (but probably not the last) gaffe involves Gingrich squirming his way out of an embarrassing scenario by admitting to an even worse scenario — one that could conceivably end in investigations, charges, and jail time.
The trouble started for Gingrich after it was revealed that he and his third wife, Callista, has a revolving credit line of $500,000 at Tiffany's (NYSE: TIF). While not a big deal in and of itself, it was a bit of an embarrassment of riches for a man seeking the nomination for President. It certainly doesn't endear him to middle class primary voters who are struggling to make ends meet.
Gingrich's explanation to voters? It was a fiscally responsible credit account, because it was zero percent interest. In other words, he had the account because it represented a good deal.
As it turns out, the deal might be a little too good...and possibly a felony. [...]
Shut up, Newt and vanish. Please. We The People do not want or need you hanging around being the proverbial ass.
