Newt is History

The Chronicle reported this week that the fundamentalists on the State Board of Education want high schoolers to learn about Newt Gingrich.

“Texas high school students would learn about such significant individuals and milestones of conservative politics as Newt Gingrich and the rise of the Moral Majority — but nothing about liberals — under the first draft of new standards for public school history textbooks.”

This could be fun. Every American History teacher would eventually have to answer the question “is it true that Newt Gingrich married his high school math teacher?”

And “is it true that he cheated on his first wife with his second wife, and that he cheated on his second wife with his third wife?”

This is not about philandering, it’s about hypocrisy. These dumb torys want to elect this guy president. He was doing all this screwing around while he led the House that impeached Bill Clinton over sex.

They should stick to Adam and Eve and the dinosaurs.

Adam and Eve were the first to saddle-break the dinosaurs, weren't they?

It's amazing that none of Newt's poo-poo sticks to his sorry rump... or does it? I have no idea what the Christian right thinks of this scoundrel.

You know that the people in power who want schoolchildren to learn about Newt wouldn't know Jesus if he kicked them in the ass... which he might well want to do.
