Below, I commented on what I perceive to be a lack of self-discipline in former House Speaker Newt Gingrich. I was referring to his manner of speaking. Well, according to Politico, sometimes Gingrich listened once too many times to the ad and he "said it with diamonds." Politico reports that he and his wife had an outstanding debt of close to half a million dollars at Tiffany's. I suppose this nixes any chance he had at going for the Bubba vote on the basis of shared cultural affinities.
