Newt Gingrich, your fifteen minutes were up more than ten years ago. And besides, it’s not 1960 anymore, much less 2004.

Gingrich, who has a long habit of opening his mouth, has yet to even officially announce his candidacy for President, but that hasn’t stopped him from engaging in a thoroughly numbing and uninformed media blitz.

When asked what he would do as President to “slow the homosexual agenda”, Gingrich earlier this week made vague allusions to being “pro-classical Christianity” and how important it is to “protect the rights of conscience,” which is somehow being infringed upon in a society that’s growing more and more welcoming of equal rights.

This is nothing new. We’ve heard this before, and it’s getting painfully old, Newt.

When speaking out against opponents of Proposition 8 after the 2008 election, Newt said: “I think there is a gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us, is prepared to use violence, to use harassment. I think it is prepared to use the government if it can get control of it. I think that it is a very dangerous threat to anybody who believes in traditional religion.”

Simultaneously paying lip service to evangelicals and playing the outdated fear mongering card, Newt has seemingly forgotten he is living in the 21st century.

And while I wish I were kidding, Newt’s ignorant and backwards ideology is offensive and demeaning and has no place in today’s political landscape.

The thrice married Newt even manages to eloquently talk about the threat of America becoming “a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists.”

Killing two birds with one stone. Logic be damned!

But when you’re a man who uses your own country as a scapegoat for your infidelities, logic doesn’t really apply to you, does it?

Time’s up, Toady. Turn the page.

    If I don’t keep up with Newt, how will I know what the gay agenda is? I’m not always able to attend the homo meetings. 🙂

      I’d love to go to one of these meetings, plotting the destruction of modern society sounds a bit heavy, so I hope they serve snacks!

    If this is the best the Teabaggers can come up with for 2012, I say bring it on. He’s so easy to discredit. He’s one of the biggest douche-bags in politics. 3 or 4 wives, wasted time in congress to impeach Clinton, and last but not least: he clings onto Nineteenth century views. He’s an old white man, not much different from McCain, but with less honor and all that military stuff. So bring it on!

      It would be historic. Nobody on the GOP radar has what it takes to be a viable mainstream candidate. And unless there’s an unknown wild card biding their time while Gingrich, Huckabee, and Romney blow up the airwaves, the field is going to be pretty weak and thin. What happened to all that enthusiasm after the 2010 elections? It’s as if they’re trying to make it easy on Obama.

        As Bill Maher said, it’d be great to see Palin vs. Trump just because you have two reality stars (stars is a strong word) going at it, and they will do anything to win. It will be fun to watch the Repub primaries. I guarantee someone from the Repub’s will break off as an Independent, most likely a teabagger.
