Republicans need to take this clown down. Mitt Romney should rhetorically nuke Newt.
But even as Chris Wallace zeroed in on Gingrich, watching Wallace squirm while doing it was telling. The Fox News anchor obviously conflicted about cornering a Republican.
Having gone through impeachment and written in Clinton’s defense at the time, the unwinding of Gingrich’s hypocrisy while he sweats like a stuck pig trying to get the Republican nomination isn’t in the least gratifying.
When you add chief impeachment honcho Rep. Henry Hyde’s own affair to Gingrich’s convenient moralism it’s a reminder of Republican chutzpah, but also that Democrats never hold their adversaries accountable.
Pres. Ronald Reagan was saved from Iran-Contra investigations and ultimate impeachment through the horrific assassination attempt that bound the country closer to their president. Richard Nixon was allowed to resign. Both Republicans revealing true “crimes and misdemeanors” needed for impeachment, which Pres. Bill Clinton’s stupid consensual sexual indiscretion never did.
