Newt Helped Formulate Christmas

by Ann Coulter - December 21st, 2011 - Human Events

Every few years, heinous Democratic policies -- abortion, gay marriage, affirmative action, Hillarycare, Obamacare, to name a few -- compel previously uninvolved Americans to leap into politics.

This is great, except for two things: (1) We have to get heinous Democratic policies first; and (2) newcomers have short memories, sometimes no memories at all.

The second point is the only possible explanation for why some conservatives seem to view Newt Gingrich​ as the anti-Establishment outsider who will shake up Washington.

Newly active right-wingers would do well to spend a little more time quietly reading up on Newt's political career, and a little less time shaking their fists at some imaginary "Establishment" -- which now apparently includes Michael Savage, Mark Steyn​, Christine O'Donnell, Ramesh Ponnuru, Glenn Beck​ and me, all of whom oppose Newt's candidacy. (By the way, guys, are we car-pooling to the next Trilateral Commission meeting? I have a thing at the World Bank​ that same day.)

Only then will they realize that Gingrich would be a disaster for everything they believe in.

I love Ann. I don't always agree with her. Certainly, her candidate for President, Mitt Romney has some flaws that could be exploited to write an equally eviscerating article filled with humorous sarcasm. However this article is a great summation of the reasons I can't make Newt my first choice in this primary contest. I do though have a problem with Ann's excessive vitriol. If Newt wins the primary how is she going to backpedal and support him in the general election?

Or will she be happy to accept 4 more years of Barack Obama?
