Dear Mr. Rowdy,

I don’t think you’re a highly educated and decent man to be in this Web site. Sorry to tell you the truth ! Are you Newt’s servant ?

Newt could definitely win the Republican nomination. Even though he’s a repented adulturer, the Christian conservatives still support this rascal. To date, all of his ‘wide stances’ have been taken with loose women. He’s a Baptist. He’s right now respectably married. He’s pro-life and pro-war. He’s reasonably intelligent and presentable, with a resume that is impressive enough, though not outstanding. And, his GOP political pedigree alone would easily advance him ahead of the those nouveau-reich showdogs Ugly Freddy, Slim Fast Huckabee, Rotten Rudy, and Mitt Griswald. His most fierce competition would come from Michael Bloomberg and Ron Paul. And, for old Newt, that’s pretty good news.

The bad news is that any of the Democratic, or even the Independent candidates could and very likely would work the chinks in Newt’s armor to leave him naked in a landslide, especially after 8 years of Bush-capades. Newt would have his work cut out for him trying to walk away from the stinch Bush-capade flatulence has left to mark the GOP for a number of years.

Still, Kermit the Newt shouldn’t have a big problem pulling the money together to run with the current field of GOP turkeys, and actually win the party’s nomination. I personally hope he announces, just to cut Rotten Rudy and Ugly Freddy out of it.

Rowdy, I understand QuyTran with no problem.

You, on the other hand, might be due some instruction in basic manners and decency.
