I'm watching the Debate last night as Newt Gingrich says things like, ....It's important to look at the records of each of the candidates (hoping of course no one looks at his) or how important it is that the voters pick someone (like him) to get us out of the mess we're in...ETC....ETC...to the cheers of the sheepies in the audience.
At any rate, THE ABSOLUTE FIRST IMAGE while listening to Newt was that of Professor Harold Hill. The fictional lead character in the musical "Music Man".....Boy could Harold talk and SWAY THE CROWDS. Everyone in 'River City' just loved to hear him talk. Obviously, it takes intelligence to be able to sell snake oil.
The similarities, don't stop there. His Character had been run out of several towns on a rail once people caught on to his shenanigans. Almost the same way that Newt Gingrich was run out of Washington, DC, when he had to step down as Speaker.
Then, there are his business dealings, Professor Hill, was always looking to make a quick buck. Not to be out done, Newt had his questionable business dealings as well. Some were beyond belief and would have made Professor Hill Proud.
Yes, you have to hand it to him, Gingrich sure can talk.
