That would be like saying that the nation's most vocal proponent of family values had an affair with another woman while his wife was on her deathbed... Never mind. Former Speaker Newt Gingrich sums up the Republicans' problems in a nutcase. Their most extreme members are more out of step with the rest of America than Joe Cocker in a line dance.

They're like a sod farm for Paula Cole's armpits. You know, because we're so entranced by outside appearances, we easily fall for imitations. For example, there's this guy right now who's becoming pretty successful doing what is essentially a pale imitation of me.
