Why Newt Gingrich isn't all bad

Newt Gingrich would be a horrible president. 

He's an egomaniac, he made a vile Global Warming video with Nancy Pelosi, he was censured for major ethics violations, and he wasted a great chance to shrink government back in the 1990's. 

He then helped Fannie/Freddie destroy the economy in the 00's, and was paid millions to do so.  The cronyism that Gingrich represents is one of our biggest problems, and his past behavior shows that he would probably do nothing to end it.   


Even Hitler loved his dog.  Everybody has some redeeming qualities. 

Here's Maureen Dowd, quoting Barney Frank:

Barney Frank told Abby Goodnough in The Times that Gingrich was “the single biggest factor” in destroying a Washington culture where the two parties respected each other’s differing views yet still worked together.

Good job, Mr. Gingrich.  Good job on that one.
