His Wife Worked For RW Think Tank & Newt Gingrich

A well connected son of a state politician is running in a house district primary - His new bride spent her post college years working for AEI and Newt Gingrich. Newt credits glowingly in his books and she co-wrote a handful of articles articulating Newt's greedy icky theories - all of which made me hurl.

He claims she was young... but not so much when she went back and did some stuff for Newt's 2012 POTUS run. .

We're not supposed to speak of it either.

6. The OP seems to mean well, but I am scratching my head too.

A little more explanation by the OP would help.

13. It is usually helpful when people just say who they are talking about

 

rather than leaving some ominous tone that "we can't talk about them" assuming everyone in the world is on the same train of thought as they are.

I even hunted around using some key words and STILL can't figure out who the OP refers to.

8. The moment when I realized my girlfriend was just like me

was the moment our relationship ended. I found her to have some serious faults. How anyone here can hold someone accountable for their significant others actions puzzles me.

17. Ick Factor

 

I remember the day Karl Rove was in front of my car at the airport - I had a visceral reaction.
Newt is pure evil too.

She was surrounded by the Karl's and Newt's of the GOP while at the AEI

20. Obviously there's no problem, since you're NOT speaking of it.

Must not be important.
