Breaking Up is Hard to Do

It is sad when love goes sour. Broken families are the bane of a strong society. San Fran Nan and Newtie are on the outs:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is holding back some information on Republican Newt Gingrich that could detract from his presidential campaign, according to a report published Monday.

“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” Pelosi told Talking Points Memo. “When the time is right. … I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.”

Gingrich, who served as Speaker of the House, worked with Pelosi in Congress from 1987 to 1999. Pelosi also served on the ethics committee that investigated Gingrich for tax cheating and campaign finance violations in the late ’90s.

This has to qualify for the understatement of the year:

Gingrich filmed an ad with then-House Speaker Pelosi in 2008 to urge action on climate change, which haunted him early in his presidential bid this year. Gingrich called the ad “probably the dumbest single thing I’ve done in recent years” last month.

Not that Gingrich reads this blog…but you never know – here’s a reminder:

And in memoriam of a relationship gone bad:

  1. Well, there is a lot in Newt’s past to suggest he is a Progressive (most folks think of them as RINO’s). Maybe Nancy knows where his Progressive bonifides are hidden?

  2. Apparently, Nancy is going to break the news about their sordid affair. She’s quite upset that he’s backpeddling on the AGW issue. National Enquirer will be all over this and Newt could very well be in a world of trouble. I do have information from sources who wish to remain anonymous that Mitt Romney is now belting “Best Day Ever” by SpongeBob and is considering using it as his campaign theme song. What does he know? Inquiring minds wanna know!

  3. Best to get over to your post on Poli, luv. Good question by Larry, which I’d answer, but I’m not a philosopher. But Verna is…. I suppose I could have some fun 😉
