That was awesome!
Love your Sig & Avatar!
BTW, is it me, or does Newt's paramour turned third wife look like a freaking alien?
They are the same!
It's kinda scary!

ABC is probably holding back on airing this because should Newt Gingrich win South Carolina there is a possibility he could win the nomination. If he won the nomination, seeing as how ABC is virtually Obama's network, they would air it during the general election campaign and demolish the GOP ticket. Unethical? Yes but very sneaky, I like it.

Something is off on your browser, I see the Glenn Beck ad too. Likely Flash is disable or not working to properly load the ad.
Wow! There are lots of angles this could take, I guess let's see what ABC News does next. It's their move.
On October 5, Sarkis Soghanalian, once the world’s largest private arms dealer, died at 82. He had sold weapons to scores of dictators including Saddam Hussein, and he took many secrets with him to his grave. But one secret he did not take involves Newt Gingrich when he was Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. DCBureau has learned that Gingrich was at the center of a U.S. Justice Department criminal investigation in the late 1990s for a scheme to shake down the arms dealer for a $10 million bribe in exchange for Gingrich using his influence as Speaker to get the Iraq arms embargo lifted so Soghanalian could collect $54 million from Saddam Hussein’s regime for weapons he had delivered during the Iran-Iraq War.
There is often no perfect answer…you just have to use your best judgment and hope in the end it is the right thing to do.
I have no idea what this ABC interview is other than the limited stuff I am reading on DrudgeReport at this hour. I am flying blind in this posting and my opinion is only based on what little I know now.
What I DO know is that we are only 2 days out from the South Carolina primary and there is a high risk from the Drudge Report description of an explosive interview of unfair poisoning of those going to the polls.
There simply is not enough time for a candidate to respond to the explosive report and fairness also includes fairness to the candidate. This is not to say that news should be suppressed (it should not) but news should also not be used to ambush. Thus…in light of the close time to the South Carolina primary…if I were ABC, I would hold this interview until after the polls close on Saturday (or I would have showed it a week ago.) What do YOU think?
