GOP Establishment Realizes Hurricane Newt Is Coming For Landfall

There's another GOP debate tonight! Batter the hatches! 

They thought he was dead. They thought they killed him in Iowa. They thought wrong. Newt Gingrich is back, baby! And like the awful B-Movie he is, he's out for revenge. At first it was just about teaching that damn Mittens a lesson, but the Newtster messed around and race-baited his way into a South Carolina primary win. Then Mittens lost Iowa several weeks after winning it. And now it's all come up Gingrich. Even an old sex scandal couldn't stop him. He just kept swinging and won't go down.

If I didn't find the man completely repugnant I'd almost admire his audacity.

Juan Williams Is Writing A Book About Leaving NPR

I sincerely doubt it'll be as good as Eyes on the Prize, but in all honesty, nothing Juan's written since that has been. But, you know? Yay! Book deals! It's a two-book deal with Crown Publishing and the first will be about how hard it is to speak out in America on "sensitive topics." Oh, Juan. You can say whatever you want about anything in America (Freedom of Speech!), but there's no Constitutional amendment guaranteeing your workplace, peers or listeners/watchers/readers will like it.
