A Gingrich presidency

Doyle McManus

It would be just like its chief: Noisy, combative and prone to self-generated crises.

Last 2 ¶:

A President Gingrich couldn't rewrite the nation's healthcare law or tax law on his own; he would need Congress for those. Nor could he universally abolish child labor laws or, sadly, build lunar colonies. But he can issue executive orders, and he can do it on Day 1.

With most presidential candidates, voters worry that campaign promises are empty words that will never be carried out. But in the case of Newt Gingrich, the worry will be that he means exactly what he says.

Shorter: Neutie'd fuck the joint up but good.

If we weren't still in the hole the Chimp dug us into, I'd say elect the sonofabitch. Painful, yes, but it would mean the end of the Repuglican't party for all time.

Which is exactly why Wall St. and establishment Repugs will never permit him to be their nominee.
