The smack-down of Newt Gingrich on Monday's radio by El Rushbo was better than eating a chocolate fudge brownie with vanilla bean ice cream on top.
I have never trusted Newt Gingrich. Yeah, yeah, I know how freaking brilliant he is and how well he articulated the conservative messsage in the 90's yada yada yada.
But let's get real. He's a politican, which means that he is an attention whore. And he hasn't been exactly beloved by the GOP since his bed-hopping days that led to his, ahem, troubles during the Clinton impeachment trial.
Folks, never forget. Character counts.
Rush whacks Newt: 'He wishes they were running TV ads against him'
Rush Limbaugh responded to Newt Gingrich's shot at him with a broadside at the former speaker on today's show.
"I'm frankly getting tired of talking about Newt. I mean, it's a pointless exercise," Limbaugh said of Gingrich's dismissal of him on "Meet the Press." "I'm surprised by nothing when I'm dealing with people in the media who think they're in politics. ... They are fly-by-night operators, and most of them stand for nothing until they see a poll about what the American people want, and then they go out and try to say one way or another what the American people want while trying to falsely hold onto an ideology at the same time — and you can't count on them. You can't depend on them. They will sell you out; they will throw you overboard to save themselves, faster than anything. And they'll use you on their way up as often as they can at the same time."
"I mean, next week Newt could come out and profess his total admiration and love for me if it would serve his purposes," he continued. "They're running TV ads against me. Newt Gingrich wishes they were running TV ads against him."
