Monday’s Column: Newt’s Progression from Conservative Leader to Gore Lap Dog

Today’s column at WorldNetDaily is about Newt Gingrich, one of those rare politicians who could articulate conservatism with the best of them, but who has evolved into a “climate change” spokesman for Al Gore.

This ad that Gingrich made with Nancy Pelosi accellerated my reconsideration of Newt.

Is Newt being duped, or is he one of the salesman? At this point I’m not sure.

Give a read to “Newt Gingrich: Reaping with the enemy?” for the whole story. You can give it a Digg here.

Incidentally, there’s a similar “climate change” ad now out featuring Al Sharpton and Pat Robertson. I think I’ve figured out Gore’s tactic here. To horrify us into turning off our televisions. It’s working.
