Newt basically has the attention span of a spider monkey on crack and that thing that most of us have that keeps us from saying the stupid stuff that runs through our minds all the time out loud most of the time is either broken or he never had one to start with.

He's a totally unattractive, better read male version of Sarah Palin, what he says is basically a smoother word salad with a bigger vocabulary that he actually somewhat understands.

Newt is a stupid person's idea of what a smart person sounds like.

ETA: This says it better than I can; Krugman is from Trantor; Gingrich ain't.
