Zombie Newt Gingrich Says Three Political Parties By 2012

Number of the day:


3. The number of parties Zombie Newt says we'll have in America come 2012 if the GOP doesn't shape up:

"If the Republicans can't break out of being the right wing party of big government, then I think you would see a third party movement in 2012," Gingrich said Tuesday. ... But Gingrich, bemoaning President Barack Obama's "monstrosity of a budget," acknowledged that Republicans are partially to blame for the escalation in federal spending.

"Remember, everything Obama's doing, Bush started last year," he said. "If you're going to talk about big spending, the mistakes of the Bush administration last year are fully as bad as the mistakes of Obama's first two, three months."

Yes, indeed: The Republicans are "partially to blame" for the voracious spending spree which they oversaw from the executive branch for the last eight years, as well as the legislative branch for the first six of those. Their bad.

Sheesh.
