Newt has some balls. Or he has Alzheimers like his hero St Ronnie..any way you slice it..the man is full of shit. From Crooks and Liars:
The Teabagger King attacked President Obama because he actually shook hands with Hugo Chavez and tried to make into an international ordeal except only his teabagging compatriots bought into his lies. ABC News did a little digging and found this on Newt's own website.
When it comes to Saint Ronnie however..its ok to shuck and jive with a dictator. Again from C&L:
As recounted in a recent interview highlighted on Gingrich's own Web site, Gingrich fondly recalled the way that Reagan shared jokes with Mikhail Gorbachev.
In the interview, Gingrich refers to a favorite picture with himself and the late president: "One of the most memorable [moments] is actually a picture hanging on the wall of my family room. The two of us are on Air Force One. We're both in shirtsleeves. We both have our arms crossed and we're laughing. We're laughing because Reagan has told another joke. Reagan collected jokes, particularly about the Soviet Union."
I hope to hell Newt stays in the news..the fucker is so full of shit his eyes should be brown.
