In other news, Gingrich be broke!

Quote
Newt Gingrich ended his campaign earlier this month with nearly $4.8 million in campaign debt, according to a report filed with the Federal Election Commission that reflected campaign activity through the end of April.

Debts of $1 million to a charter airline company, $466,370 for security services, $181,977 for public relations consulting and $165,000 for web advertising were among the largest single figures owed. The filing also listed a debt of $580,134 to Gingrich himself for travel expenses.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer fella'. Gonna take quite a few speaking engagements at Dunkin' Donuts and the Legionnaires Club to pay that off.

As for the Abraham Lincoln thing, which may be a related issue, the growing libertarian movement sees the civil war as having been a conflict over limitations of federal jurisdiction more than the issue of slavery, and hates Lincoln's guts for beginning an expansion of federal power.

This exact thing has been lectured to me several times.

Wait...Newt Gingrich owes Newt Gingrich half a million dollars? For travel expenses?? How does that even work? What, does he have to book a second seat to carry his ego in?

Oh I dunno. Clinton's expression like he's about to walk face first into a bosom does a pretty good job too.

It's the hands. Their hands are all perfect. The face palm contrasts wonderfully with the extended and welcoming gesture Bill is making. Really, they're both artists and we should appreciate them as such.

Does any other president even have an "about to walk face first into a bosom" look?
