It's January and it's a shame to waste any time trying to find something of even minor significance to report from the realm of Yankee baseball when there is a real blood-sport in our midst. No, not the Super Bowl but the Florida republican primary - although each is being fought by a handful of enormously rich, arrogant, trash talkers.
One more week until the Super Bowl. It's pretty clear that most people are far more interested in the menus being served at parties they will be attending than the teams that are playing. Willard has spent so much time and energy disclaiming everything positive he accomplished as Governor of Massachusetts that he'll be rooting for the Cowboys in this one. Newt will be rooting for the Giants and Patriots, both despicable, northeast 'elites', to lose.
Our boy Newt is reaching new highs in reality disconnects, today blaming his most recent fumbling debate performance on simply being overwhelmed by the enormity of Willard Romney's lies. Granted, Willard's characterizations of the President of the United States has been and remains lie-based, but c'mon Newt, you've lied your way through three marriages and a resignation as Speaker of the House. What lie could an amateur like Willard fabricate to throw you off your game?
In other NewtNews, according to a new report from Kids Count, a Michigan based organization, 51% of Detroit's children live in poverty. Hey Newt, do you think there's enough janitorial openings for all of these impoverished kids? Perhaps the answer is Newt's proposal to create a permanent colony on the moon within 9 years. In 2005 NASA administrator Miichael Griffin estimated that landing four astronauts on the moon by 2018 would cost 104 billion dollars. Now four astronauts is not a colony, but if you are willing to suspend reality and can imagine creating a new, enormously expensive space program from nothing in under a decade without raising taxes, then anything is possible - except solutions to the very real problems we face on Earth. Poor children? Not Newt's problem. Nor Willard's.
