Newt Commits Felony in CNN Interview?Submitted by David40 on Thu, 01/19/2012 - 22:54
What an Idiot!!!
The day after Palin's endorsment, in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Gingrich "promised" to give Palin a presidential appointment.
CNN Press Room
...I was honored and delighted last night when she said if she were in South Carolina, she’d vote for Newt Gingrich....
...I would ask her to consider taking a major role in the next administration if I’m president...
"Clearly Gingrich is sending the message to all the other top-level GOP celebrities, that no matter how unqualified you are, that if you are willing to help him win the South Carolina primary, you too will be rewarded with a presidential appointment."
Way to go Newt!
