Oy Vey! Gingrich Slams Right-Wing for 'Purge' of GOP

Somebody please tell Newt Gingrich to stop digging. From The Hill, "Gingrich Calls GOP Support for Hoffman a 'Purge'":

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) late Monday had some choice words for Republicans supporting Conservative Party party candidate Doug Hoffman (N.Y.), accusing them of conducting a "purge" of the GOP.

Many national Republican figures, such as Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R-Minn.) and ex-Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska), have backed Hoffman over GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava in the 23rd district's special election this year. The district has been long-held by Republicans, but many conservatives have shied away from Scozzafava for her socially liberal positions and the local GOP's selection process that they say was not transparent.

Gingrich broke the mold and backed Scozzafava, saying her candidacy gave the Republicans the best shot of regaining a congressional majority. The former Speaker faced a push-back from the right after his announcement but he upped the ante on Monday.

"This idea that we're suddenly going to establish litmus tests and all across the country we're going to purge the party of anybody who doesn't agree with us 100 percent; that guarantees Obama's reelection, that guarantees Pelosi as Speaker-for-life," he told Fox News last night.
Yeah. Right.

See Michelle Malkin's response, "
Yes, Newt, the GOP Should be 'Purged' of Left-Wing Saboteurs."

Gingrich sucks. No, really. The GOP needs to flush him like a turd.

Sarah Palin is embarking on a RINO hunt, and something tells at least one Newt is included on her list.

That is a good thing.

See? Newt won't keep his mouth shut - and he is on the losing end of this. If he isn't smart enough to see that, then he gets what he deserves.

Newt! What happened to you?????

Newt Gingrich? Didn't my dad refuse to vote for him...?

Seriously, I remember Newt when he was still a bright-eyed space geek lobbying for all the respectable white folks to move to the L5 space colonies and leave Earth to the tacky brown welfare hordes...

Richard, we wish you wouldn't smoke that stuff before commenting.

As for Newt Gingrich, he has no credibility with me and I suspect none with much of the GOP base. Idiots who decide to join the RINO herd will be disappointed.

I will vote for no more RINOs. If the GOP runs one, I will write-in a name, but RINOs will no longer get my vote just for being the lesser of two evils.
