Gingrich goes Nuclear!
WASHINGTON (Map, News) - Dismissing the GOP presidential field as a "pathetic" bunch of "pygmies," Newt Gingrich hinted Monday he might step in to beat Democrats Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama....It is not immediately clear if the reference to "an utterly irrelevant, shallow television celebrity" was a slap at Chris Matthews or the as-yet undeclared candidacy of former Tennessee Senator and actor Fred Thompson.
Gingrich mocked Republican presidential candidates for subjecting themselves to a May debate hosted by Chris Matthews of MSNBC's "Hardball."
"You're watching an utterly irrelevant, shallow television celebrity dominate everybody who claimed they want to lead the most powerful nation in the world," he said.
No mention appeared in the article that Gingrich had actually begun to emit gamma rays, although at a sublethal level. We cannot confirm rumors that his aides and secretary are wearing lead lined underwear, although we will spread them.
