Newt Gingrich, The 'Skunk Vomit' NeoCon (video)
February 6, 2012
Don Imus yells the slur “Skunk Vomit” as a description for Newt Gingrich. Coming from the erratic “Old Cowboy” and shock jock legend that lives on outrage and offense is nothing new to his listeners. This successor to the Andy Rooney curmudgeon institution is hardly a clarion voice of time-honored conservatives. So too, with a little investigation into Newt Gingrich you will see that the former Speaker is no true conservative. His rhetoric at times can seem appealing, but strip away the high tone platitudes and you are left with the assertions of an opportunist and a New World Order proponent.
Regretfully, many political neophytes who view themselves as being conservative in their viewpoints lack sufficient understanding in the meaning of the ideology and the history of the movement. The Reagan dictum “Trust but Verify” certainly applies to candidates seeking public office. Also, the average armchair observer lacks the activism to engage in the down and dirty trench warfare of party politics. Lastly, few devote the necessary energy and time doing the homework needed to vet candidates properly.
