    Well, it appears the Freddie Mac lobbyist wasn't just warning the GSEs about their lending practices after all.

    Of course, you don't pay nearly $2 million to a politician to give you economic advice.

    It wasn't even him. His company was hired to provide strategic advice as a consultant.

    We can't let the truth get in the way of a good lib lie though.

    Nah, the CEO pimped Freddie Mac. Newt was just one of his diseased man-whores.

    Got to keep in mind, Toro is desperate. He and all his Wall Street buddies put all their chips on the Mormon, and he's unravelling right now.

    Today's Rasmussen - Newt 38, Mittens 17. OW Gotta hurt.

    You haters should have listened to me. I told you to buy the Newt contract on Intrade when it was at $12. Today it is at $36. I would now close that trade out.

    Don't ever say that I don't help bigots try to improve their lot in life!

    The strategic advice was "Tell us how we can get more conservatives supporting us."

    yeah, I mean, I'm sorry you missed that. I guess you'll have to go back to cheating Granny out of her house...
