Narcissistic Nutcase Mocks College Kid, Threatens to Run for President

Serial adulterer Newt Gingrich likes to pretend he might run for president, and he gets mighty huffy when a college kid mentions that he is, well, a serial adulterer.

Per HuffPo, the less personally insulting part of his response was this:
"I've had a life which, on occasion, has had problems," Gingrich said. "I believe in a forgiving God, and the American people will have to decide whether that their primary concern. If the primary concern of the American people is my past, my candidacy would be irrelevant. If the primary concern of the American people is the future... that's a debate I'll be happy to have with your candidate or any other candidate if I decide to run."
Problem here, Newt, is that your past tells us some important things about you. For example, you don't learn from your mistakes. You can't govern your animal urges. Getting what you want is more important to you than keeping promises or basic moral conduct. You don't care much about other people, up to and including the person supposedly dearest to you.

Oh, and you lie like a freaking rug.

Sure, these things are in the past. But they would have a significant effect on our collective future if some freakish and frankly unimaginable chain of events landed you in the Oval Office.

What a freak. Another reason I'm proud to be an atheist.
Compare our percentage of the population with our numbers in prison; see what "traditional values" do to society.

I'm not really sure Newt's problem is the religion whose teachings he basically ignores, so much as the psychopathology he perennially displays.

For that matter, I don't think highly of "traditional" values. That's why I'm a Christian.

But I'm with you on "what a freak."

I don't think much either of the 'traditional' or the "radical/progressive" values; their respective adherents seem to spend inordinate amounts of time denouncing each other and yet curiously living quite similar lives punctuated merely by tediously predictable markers such as clothing labels and religious affiliation and a few sports differences.
Probably one of the reasons "None of the Above" is the USA's fastest-growing census block, especially among those under 35 years old.

I've seen some news reports that he makes his living conning people into sending him money to receive fake awards. There have been several reports on this. Besides he looks pompus.

Again, we agree. And it's hardly just those under 35; my father is 70, and voted for Woody Allen in several key elections of the late 1960s and early 70s.
