Frank trashes Gingrich, Newt bites Barney back
You didn't really think that by retiring Representative Barney Frank would "go gentle into that good night", did you? Wareham voters will really miss this Congressional curmudgeon.
On the ABC news program "This Week" he weighed in (again) on Presidential candidate and former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich saying, “As I look at the Republican debate, I have been casting ‘The Wizard of Oz.’ Newt is the Wizard of Oz. There’s nothing there."
The former speaker's PR flack fired back with, “Grumpy is no way to spend your retirement.’’
Newt warns of "Black xenophobia"
Not to be outdone by a mere politician, the New York Times columnist, Maureen Dowd, eviscerated Gingrich in her study of his rather reactionary racial ideas. Her column uses phrases like "His mind is a jumble, an amateurish mess lacking impulse control. He plays air guitar with ideas, producing air ideas. He ejaculates concepts, notions and theories that are as inconsistent as his behavior."
