Newt Gingrich has been a jackass for a long time. I was reading through some amazing quotes of his earlier—which is how I found the one in this drawing: “I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power.”
Here are some other gems:
“The problem isn’t too little money in political campaigns, but not enough.”
“Gingrich – Primary mission, Advocate of civilization, Definer of civilization, Teacher of the rules of civilization, Leader of the civilizing forces.”
“The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument.”
“It doesn’t matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”
“She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.” —talking about his first wife after divorcing her.
