    Gingrich is, when it suits him, as populist as Andy By God Jackson. However, Gingrich is also the most supercilious pseudo-intellectual in national politics. Propositions that would not survive a single shot of tequila, claims that would get a blue book shredded, and bombast that would shame the Greatest Pretender all gush from Newt like vomit after a frat initiation.
