On Newts And Efts

Well, not really about efts, but it's a nice title. This post is just on one newt, the Gingrich one. He doesn't release his tail when attacked, more's the pity. He's also unusually good at chewing on his shoe, as this list makes clear.

His political game is warfare against those who oppose him in politics, and in that he doesn't much differ from the rest of the wingnut crop which ripened in the 1990s. Perhaps those others are the efts of my title? The Laura Ingrahams and so on? All those people we still pay attention to?

My apologies to all actual newts and efts, including the charming ones I saw just basking in the sun this summer.
