Belatedly, Newt Gingrich
Actually, he’s always a dick, but he’s got some beauts this past week …
“I tried for years to have a very simple model. These schools should get rid of unionized janitors, have one master janitor, pay local students to take care of the school. The kids would actually do work; they’d have cash; they’d have pride in the schools. They’d begin the process of rising.”
So you get rid of unionized janitors – kick them out of a job – so you can pay some kids shit money to do the same job. I see, and applying this at a non-public level and you have a lovely justification for union busting and lowering salaries. It’s a generational outsourcing if you like. Of course it is all for the good of the kids

No matter how he tries to spin this he is a hypocrite. He/His company took $2 million from Freddie and Fannie … to be a “historian” ??? Now we see that he got money from Big Pharma,
So we know he was paid consultant for drug makers. That’s the first criterion for being a drug lobbyist.
Here’s the second criterion: While some consultants simply provide strategy or advice, Gingrich directly contacted lawmakers in an effort to win their votes.
I think those are three fine criteria for Dick of the Week
