    Raising a Banner of Bold Colors: Republicanism Lost, but Conservatism Did Not
    by Newt Gingrich, Human Events
    November 13, 2006

    When it comes to the lessons of the 2006 elections, it's very important to set the record straight. I traveled throughout the country this election year. I met with Americans in all the key states. And what I now understand is this: Republicans lost, but conservatism didn't.

    Can someone like Gingrich, who's had, what is it now, 3 wives really be a legitimate voice of conservatism?

    Of course. Even the Devil knows Who God is... You can KNOW what is true or good or correct, even if you aren't always a good example of it, yourself.

    Is this why the GOP nominated so many crooks and child molesters for last week's election?

    Newt gets it right? His answer is blaming the media. The Republican defeat at the polls was all the result of the elite media. What utter balderdash from a morally and intellectually bankrupt GOP talking head. Could it be that the real reason for the turning out of the GOP was its own intellectual and moral bankruptcy? Ya think?

    If you bothered reading the article, he said the problem was Republicans abandoning their conservative roots. He doesn't blame the media at all.

    You expect Bully to read what he wrote? Why should he? he already thinks he knows what Newt is going to say.
