Newt is Mad as a Hatter

Gingrich is not only a lying, honorless, bloated bile pump, but he truly is "Mad As Hell". CBS's Dick Meyer pens this long overdue gem...
Good Riddance To The Gingrichites

Really, it's just a simple thesis: The men who ran the Republican Party in the House of Representatives for the past 12 years were a group of weirdos. Together, they comprised one of the oddest legislative power cliques in our history. And for 12 years, the media didn't call a duck a duck, because that's not something we're supposed to do.

But I knew this all along. Why it has taken these bastions of journalistic integrity 12 years to report this fact remains a mystery - or perhaps not. Cha-Ching. This reader's comment says it as well as anything:
Nice try. You're trying to declare a kind of bankruptcy, wiping out your (immense) liability for debts of the past. You're hoping you're free, now, to channel young Woodward and Bernstein and I.F. Stone and direct your steely media gaze on malfeasance in high office.
