Newt is to the Republican party as Barney Frank is to the Dems.
Both are brilliant
Both are arrogant
Both dislike being questioned and/or challenged
Both are egotists
Both are insiders
Both speak down to people
Both have multiple relationships
Both take questionable stands
Both are loved by the extreme element of their party
Both have questionable ethics
Both don’t appeal to independents
Both are terrible leaders
Both have a strained relationship w/ House members
Both are obese
Both are unregistered lobbyists
Barney thinks Newt would be easy to beat in November. We have a great opportunity to take over the WH next year and I hope it doesn’t slip away because of another bad candidate selection.
