Topic: "N. Leroy" (7)
Frodo decided that he would sit and listen to one entire political speech from beginning to end. He figured that he had already heard every imaginable and supercilious statement in sound bites, and it would be an appropriate waste of his time to measure the construction of said thoughts by one who would be President. Fortunately, Willard and Santini had already spoken, so Frodo was spared another rendition of "America the Beautiful" and was immune from another assault on 21st century sectarian thought. Saint Paul was up in Maine, and nobody really seemed to know why, leaving only the Newtster as the subjkect of Frodo's analysis.
Unbelievably, the former Speaker of the House repeated most of the diatribe from a recent news conference where he went into great length about his perceived activities upon his inauguration and prior to his next act of adultery. There was an exception however, and it had to do with the Moon.
A few days ago the proposal had been made to re-commit resources to the nation's lunar exploration efforts. Newt suggested that he would, before his second term commenced, establish an American lunar colony of 13,000 adventurers, and that before he left office, the colony would apply for and receive American statehood.
Frodo would like to point out that his eminence has never stepped to the plate in behalf of the 550,000 American citizens who populate the District of Columbia, and who have continuously sought statehood for decades, if not centuries. Frodo admits to being confused about the distinction; doesn't it seem logical that Newt I would win the adoration, loyalty, and support of an awful lot more potential voters if he initiated statehood for old D.C.?
Perhaps the 13,000 residents of "Moon Base Gingrich" would all be former students and girl friends from the University of West Georgia? They would be all white, wouldn't they?
