    don't know how screwed up Gingrich is.

    I think people - even those of us who are jaded at this point - should review the history.  I just read the 2010 Esquire article about him and the update the author posted yesterday.  I had forgotten all about Bob Livingston - and it seems that he is working on Gingrich's campaign now.  Oh how the rats like to run in packs.
