    Hell, the corp media knows them, but won't talk about them.  Until it comes out in an easily digestible form such as this, the corp media won't talk about them and until they do, the newt is going to get away with his sordid history. The corp media is intent on making this a competitive horserace for ratings (and their agenda sometimes, as in the case of fox "news"). As such it's not their desire to knock the newt out.  At tgiving, I was surprised to know how few knew about the divorce on the sickbed story so it's definitely not out there.  If the cablenets and the rest of the corp media don't mention it, no one will know.

      You got child-janitors, invented people, and whatever b.s. he's spouting this week.

      Sure, we have 30 years of 'stuff' to throw at him -- the ads write themselves -- but he himself is always generating wild new levels of WTF.  And that gets plenty of media coverage.

      A weapon that is also a treasure is certain to be used.

        but rather doubles down on his mistakes. It's rather remarkable to watch. He'd make a worse Prez than Cain-Palin-Bachmann combined. Seriously.

        He will self-destruct. The only questions are WHEN and HOW.

        Ho'oponopono. To make things right; restore harmony; heal.
