Newt Gingrich isn't going to be President. He isn't going to even win the GOP nomination. His little surge in popularity has withered away and now his ragtag campaign couldn't even get him on the primary in his home state of Virginia. It was his campaign's excessive response that made the headlines, comparing the setback to Pearl Harbor. Calling him a pompous, bloviating ass would be an insult to pompous assholes.
It ranks up there with Steven Swartzman, multi-billionaire hedge fund manager who compared Obama's call for eliminating the tax breaks for hedge fund managers to Hitler invading Poland, from a Jew no less.
