Newt Gingrich just blows me away with his arrogance and, how do the Jewish spell it, "chutzpah" (defined as "audacity with no shame"). This glib Republican politician, who has a slick mind and even slicker mouth, is about set to announce for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination. His latest book is, if you can believe this, "Rediscovering God in America."
What a farce. How convenient it is to have found God at long last at 67 years old, and then use it to further your political ambitions! Supposing that he sincerely believes these things, now at the ripe old age of 67, why would anyone believe this man, given his past, and reward him with the most powerful political office in the world? He's obviously counting on the sheer gullibility of the American public, along with the power of the Fox News to 'persuade' the people that here is a politician worth believing.
It boggles the mind.
I have a suggestion for Newt. If he thinks that America needs Gods so much, become a priest, become a Catholic missionary, go stand on the street corner and evangelize, start a TV ministry, or whatever else your local priest might suggest. But, for crying out loud, don't use your newfound religious faith to try and win the Presidency. That is SO cynical.
