A Sacrament Most Unholy

Newt Gingrich.  Reduce him down to his most fundamental qualities and what do you have?  Ego.  Avarice.  Rank, oozing arrogance.  A miles-long slime trail of belligerence and unbridled lust.  In a way, Newt is the embodiment of America at its worst.  Bloated.  Irresponsible.  Pompous.  Pedantic.  So ready to buy into our own awesomeness and the notion, however absurd, that our way is the right way, the only way, and, most frightening, god's way.

There is no reason this guy should be running for president.  He couldn't hack it as Speaker of the House and he certainly does not belong at the helm of a nation.  Oh, I'm sure he's talked himself into thinking he's up for the job.  I'm sure he's worked it out in that formidable brain of his that he's just the man to right the ship, to put us back on track, to guide our country back to Greatness.  I'm also sure that, deep down (or maybe not so deep down), he believes he's coming to us as a savior of sorts, condescending from his high perch to rescue a nation of slaves from the precipice of doom.  Well, I'm telling you right now that Gingrich worship not just unholy, it's downright unhealthy.  Allow me to demonstrate:

Ye gods that was horrifying.

Fortunately all the videos youtube recommended after watching this were Cat Power songs.
