The PUMASphere topic of the week is Newt Gingrich.  First of all, who is Newt Gingrich and why would anyone care that he believes that Sarah Palin will not be the future GOP leader?  Obviously, she is a major celebrity, and to deny that is pure lunacy.  Right?!  Or maybe, he simply views her as a threat for his own candidacy in 2012.

What possible scandals could the DNC bring out against a former Republican Speaker of the House?  A half-sister who is an GLBT activist (Candace Gingrich)?  His first marriage was to his *former teacher*?  (ethics? judgment anyone?)  Eighty-four ethics violation charges filed while he was in office?  Divorced his second wife who had multiple sclerosis because of an affair he was having during the Clinton administration?

Is Newt Gingrich the person we want to go up against Nobama in 2012?  Or is it Sarah Palin, a person with star quality, the victim of many vicious sexist attacks in the media?

My vote is for Sarah Palin.  If you would like to tell Mr. Gingrich how you feel about him adding to the sexist attacks on Sarah, you can contact him here.
