As other Republican candidate creatures drop around him, Newt is ‘rising’ by default. What a great way to get a candidate, don’t you think? The Last Crackpot Standing?
This is a Time Magazine cover from 1994–Newt is snapping Tiny Tim’s crutch in half.
Recently, Newt suggested that schools fire janitors and have the poor kids clean up the school for pay. He says Child Labor Laws are “stupid”.
“You’re going to see from me extraordinarily radical proposals to fundamentally change the culture of poverty in America,” he added.
Oh, we don’t doubt it one bit, Newt.
With Newt, some great ideas just remain great in his head. Even after 17 years. Newt is brilliant. All you have to do is ask him. Perhaps we can set up children in cots above the factories, just like China! Then we could REALLY compete!
No doubt, that other bastion of integrity, his sidekick Dick Armey, is writing up the social security Privatization Plan for him–so that Wall Street can do a repeat of 2009 in 30 years or so.
There is one major difference between Newt Then and Newt Now, though. That would be the number of wives he’s accumulated.
Perhaps he could get his mother to go on camera and call Hillary a Bitch again. That would round out the deja vu.
Nice ciggie on camera, Mrs. Newt. You got a lotta class. I can see how Newt turned out as nice as he did. (h/t video, Karen For Clinton).
