Pot, meet kettle:
You know what this means, don't you? It means that Newt is rising in the polls, and as such, the politics of personal destruction must be brought to bear on him.
First, "Fat, Womanizing Blowhard" could describe Teddy Kennedy to a "T". Ever hear Bill Maher refer to Teddy as a "Fat, Womanizing Blowhard"? Remove the comma, and "Fat Womanizing Blowhard" applies to Bill Clinton. Anyone ever hear Bill Maher refer to Bill Clinton as a womanizer? Or to Michael Moore as a "Fat blowhard"? (Trick questions. Almost no one hears Bill Maher any more!)
The level of hypocrisy is stunning, even for liberals. The next time a liberal sheds crocodile tears over Newt's wife being cheated on while she was hospitalized for cancer, just ask of they are talking about Newt or John Edwards? See if their faux outrage was the same for each.
Newt is by no means the perfect conservative, but I think the liberal left is envisioning Newt standing toe to toe in debate against the teleprompter dependent Obama and seeing their side irreparably bloodied. And they're wetting themselves over it, hence, the display above.
