Newt Gingrich goes on MSNBC, calls himself a “team player” while quietly throwing some jabs at Romney, and discusses his deep love of zoos. It’s an amazing interview.

    The best Newt could do for our country is disappear into the woodwork, what an IDIOT!

      Hey Nazi Bill. Have a great weekend, my lefty friend! 😉

      • Hey MustGo, get ready for 4 more years of Obama! My advice to you would be pack your bags and move, maybe Argentina will take you like they took in the Nazis after WWII.

    Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:

    – Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
    – Why the early bird gets the worm;
    – Life isn’t always fair;
    – And maybe it was my fault.

    Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don’t spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

    His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened
    his condition.

    Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

    It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

    Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

    Common Sense took a beating when you couldn’t defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

    Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realise that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.

    Common Sense was preceded in death,
    -by his parents, Truth and Trust,
    -by his wife, Discretion,
    -by his daughter, Responsibility,
    -and by his son, Reason.

    He is survived by his 5 stepbrothers;
    – I Know My Rights
    – I Want It Now
    – Someone Else Is To Blame
    – I’m A Victim
    – Pay me for Doing Nothing

    Not many attended his funeral because so few realised he was gone.

    If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend! Remember, we are the land of the free because of the brave.

      What!!!, no credit to the actual author???

      • MustGo plagiarized that piece from a popular satirical article entitled “Obituary of the Late Mr. Common Sense” by the author Allen Jesson.

        Duke… it came in an email I found cool and had no credit attributed. I always credit if I post someone else’s work and know who they are.

        Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

    Newt actually was quite engaging and did talk some shit about Mitty on Hardball with Chris Matthews! I was surprised!

    He should stay as far away from zoos as possible. They may return him to his cage.
