Newt Gingrich Cries In Iowa When Asked About His Mother I really dislike and distrust this "man". He's creepy as hell and I believe its not an accident that his name is synonymous for cold blooded reptile. But, I suspect these tears are genuine or as genuine as he can be. But, really - We already have an unstable, alcoholic, weepy speaker who cannot get anything done even with the help of unstable, drug addicted radio entertain Lushbo. Do we really need a sniveling president who actually cries EIGHT YEARS after the death of his mother? The deaths of ones parents are important events but I don't know anyone of his age who still cries 8 years later.
