newt gingrich packs 'em in

The amusing thing about this article isn't what Newt Gingrich said -- that bilingual classes are teaching the language of the ghetto, and that voters should only have English ballots. I mean, those are funny and stupid positions.

But what was even more amusing was how the article describes his audience as numbering "more than 100". By "more than 100," of course, they mean "less than 150" and "just not all that many people, really, considering this clown was once Speaker of the House."

If "more than 100" is all Newt can draw at a speech where the audience is National Federation of Republican Women, maybe he should reconsider his plans for 2008 and maybe take a nice long cruise, or write another cheesy science fiction bodice-ripper.
