Gingrich Wins History Prize

Mr. Gingrich, known as a swollen parcel of dropsies by his detractors and as a great intellect by those who think that carbon dioxide is not a greenhouse gas, astonished all by winning the Goldblatt Prize, considered by many to be the Noble Prize of history, for his $2m essay on Fannae Mae.

… the prize is a vindication of the Republican model of government, which involves screwing the not-rich in the name of fiscal probity which gorging at the public trough.
