What Gall Newt

Can we make him go away? Every time I think we're done, there he is.

It takes a lot of gall to attack the current Speaker. Remember when Newt shut down the government? He allowed appropriations to expire, causing the shutdown, because he felt snubbed when he was seated in the back of Airforce One on the flight back from the funeral of Yitzhak Rabin.

Ultimately, with his failed "Contract with America" and numerous ethics complaints filed against him (which in fairness, were eventually dropped but one), The House Ethics Committee found that he had provided inaccurate information during those ethics investigations in the hopes of having the complaints dismissed and was found to have "intentional or ... reckless" disregard of House rules. Eventually, his own delegation turned on him and he was forced to resign his Speakership and he left the House.

So please, go away Newt. Please.

Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon.
