Newt Jumps The Shark

Newt Gingrich, in town to raise money for Dave Reichert and some other loser challening Adam Smith, is now shooting his mouth off claiming that we're in the middle of World War III.

Gingrich said in the coming days he plans to speak out publicly and to the administration from his seat on the Defense Policy Board about the need to recognize that America is in World War III.

He lists wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, last week's bomb attacks in India, North Korean nuclear threats, terrorist arrests and investigations in Florida, Canada and Britain, and violence in Israel and Lebanon as evidence of World War III.

He said Bush needs to deliver a speech to Congress and "connect all the dots" for Americans.

Has he stopped taking his medicine?  No, he's trying to reframe the 2006 elections, which are looking ever-worse for Republicans, by appealing to fear, jingoism and the right-wing's not-so-subconcious wish for the apocalypse.

Pathetic.  And yet another reason to vote for Darcy Burner, Adam Smith, Maria Cantwell and any other Democrat.  I want wackos like Newt sent back to the showers.  Again.
