Last night on Redeye someone called Newt Gingrich "Jack Black's Father"

I didn't see it until this.Conservatives love him mouthing off to the media and challenging their assumptions, but that can't carry him very far, because they will just change their questions. He rose to prominence by giving firebrand speeches to an empty House of Representative which aired on C-span. It irritated Tip O'Neill enough that he pressed C-span to add cameras showing that the seats were empty. He finally came up with a great idea, the Contract with America, that helped the GOP take control of the House. Then his troubles started. Now he's 68 years old and ready to get back into politics, but this time, at the top. If he's elected, I predict he'll last one term.
