That Newt Star Smell
What with Newt Gingrich's pre-picked raffle number finally coming up and it being his turn as the GOP Clown Car flavor of the week, it's time once again to engage in a beloved tradition this election season: immediately subjecting a Republican candidate to blistering criticism rather than simply writing him or her off as the comical non-starter he or she is.
Unlike a lot of the other boobs vying for the Republican nomination, Gingrich actually has a lengthy record of breathtaking fuck-ups to draw from, so immediately pointing out that he'll never be the GOP nominee, much less President of the United States, is even easier than it's been with past one-night-stands Republican voters have romanticized.
In case you forgot Gingrich's history of almost unimaginable douchebaggery, Joan Walsh runs it down for you in today's Salon.
