And he’s a pompous blowhard, too.
Paul Krugman: ….And Newt, although, uh, somebody said, he’s, he’s a stupid man’s idea of what a smart person sounds like….
Heh. That thrice married grifter who was paid a ton of money by Freddie Mac, Newt Gingrich (r), lectures us about morality at some right wingnut forum in Iowa:
Newt Gingrich (r): ….Let me, let me now take that, and for a brief moment describe Occupy Wall Street. All of the occupy movement starts with the premise that we all owe them everything. They take over a public park they didn’t pay for, to go nearby to use bathrooms they didn’t pay for, to beg for food from com, places they don’t want to pay for, to instruct those who are going to work to pay the taxes to sustain the bathrooms and to sustain the park, so they can self-righteously explain that they are the paragons of virtue to which we owe everything.
Now, that is a pretty good symptom of how much the left has collapsed as a moral system in this country and why you need to reassert something as simple as saying to them, go get a job right after you take a bath [applause]….
“…go get a job right after you take a bath…”
….business analyst Harrison Schultz and professor Hector R. Cordero-Guzman from the Baruch College School of Public Affairs, today released a study based on a survey of 1,619 visitors to the occupywallst.org site on October 5. And about a quarter of them have also attended occupation events. So they aren’t all armchair activists….
….“Get a job!” wouldn’t apply to most of them. Half of the respondents are already employed full-time, and an additional 20% work part-time. Just 13.1% are unemployed–not a whole lot more than the national average….

If God exists she will make Newt the republican nominee. We can only pray, and cross over to vote in the republican primary.
