DURST: Manipulative, Lying, Scornful Newt

Here's one that's going to make you want to personally circulate petitions declaring open season on rat tailed little hypocrites whose office numbers start with the 202 area code. Dick Armey, the House Republican Leader is replacing members of the House ethics committee which just happens to be considering charges against Newt Gingrich. Opponents, read...Democrats, say it's an effort to fix the case, while Republicans call it normal housekeeping. "Will the honorable gentleman please back away from the Lysol? Drop the scouring pad Senator" Normal housekeeping. Of course you got to remember these are the same guys who have been known to call civilian deaths collateral damage, and bribes campaign contributions.Responding to weird metallic echoey inner voices, Mr. Gingrich actually said out loud in front of people with microphones; "We're more than just the cynical, venal, narrow, corrupt profession that all too often is a reflection of the current culture." Of course, you are Newt. Much more. You're also manipulative, lying, scornful, unscrupulous, swindling, avaricious, grasping, virulent, cheating, fraudulent and petty.Got to get over this tendency to sell yourselves cheap, Mr. Speaker. How can we taxpayers ever respect you unless treat us like you do your Political Action Committees and position yourself expensively. Kind of like the Tiffany of sleaze?Will Durst wishes these guys would just catalog their services.
