A brilliant title, and a very well-argued critique of Gingrich's "Contract with America" by two outstanding journalists from the Washington Post who followed Newt around for some time. Also makes you realize what a horrifically awful, corrupt man is found in the form of Tom DeLay. But then again, you've got to love a guy like Newt who tells his wife he's leaving her for another woman at her bedside while she was receiving chemo. Nice. Stay classy Newt.
Very insightful about the decline and fall of Newt I.
