Newt spreads doom, gloom


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

The other morning, I was having a good cup of coffee and watching the birds feeding outside the kitchen window when the phone rang. Lo and behold, it was a recording of Newt Gingrich warning about America’s downfall into a socialistic abyss.

Just when you think he has faded away for good, there he is again with another tired message. Unlike Punxsutawney Phil, the groundhog who appears each February with his weather forecast to give us a light-hearted moment, Noxious Newt spreads only gloom and doom. I could just picture him making this recording, his pockets bulging with donations from the Koch Brothers to make one political attack after another. Oh well. Enough of this nonsense. Time to watch the birds again.
