President Gingrich?

Former Speaker of the House and current crazy man Newt Gingrich has written a book entitled "Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract with America," in which he criticizes President Bush's Iraqi policy and will soon be campaigning...i mean signing books in places like Iowa and New Hampshire. I'm sure those locations are totally random.

"It never hurts to maximize opportunities. That's the American tradition," Gingrich said. "If I can influence the reporters and political activists in Iowa and New Hampshire, they will influence the candidates.

"For an Army brat from Pennsylvania who became the only Georgia Republican in the House and the first Republican Speaker of the House in 40 years, anything seems possible. I don't think it's very likely. On the other hand, if I have an impact on public policy and do it in a way that is exciting and positive, why wouldn't I want to do that?"

Gingrich lists the following as goals for America in the Post 9/11 era, "defeat terrorism, stop driving God from public life, develop 'patriotic' immigration and education policies, harness modern science and technology and establish personal Social Security accounts." I wonder what the hell patriotic immigration is.
