Just to prove that he is as deluded as ever about his abilities, this is how Newt describes himself:
“I think I’m closer to Benjamin Franklin than to George Washington.”I normally try to respect my political opponents, and I have to admit that every now and then Gingrich says something interesting. As a political strategist, the man deserves a fair degree of respect: he accomplished what noone else thot was possible when the Republicans took over the House in 1994.
But the best possible thing about Newt Gingrich running for president - apart from the sheer entertainment value of making the kind of bizarre pronouncements above - would be the opportunity to thoroughly humiliate him. There are many Republicans I respect and try to treat with decency.
Newt Gingrich is not one of them.
