Gingrich a war criminal? Hardly. He made sure he was nowhere near Vietnam, with his student exemption.

Newt Gingerich campaigning for Todd Akin after Romney dropped Akin. Should I laugh or cry? What to do, what to do.

Is Calista coming, or will Mr. Gingrich be trolling for wife #4?

Newt should explain this. He is the definition of a politician. When you are a politician, Dishonesty has different shades of color, and it is all a part of the game. One can watch this clip and decide for themselves.

Newt has some good ideas and deserves to be heard.

we elect officials that declare war on defenseless people that launch drones to drop bombs on innocent people... we say we are fighting for freedom.... this isn't a democrat or republican thing... there are many politicians on both sides guilty of a multitude of war crimes.

There is a history of allowing war criminals, lest you forget Rummy was here earlier this year. And also not so sure about the KU Grad. and former Air Force Chief of Staff that served under "The Shrub".

It's disappointing that KU, in a town that touts itself as being liberal, is allowed to let a war criminal come to their school and promote his ideals.

Will Calista and her unmovable, plastic hair be there?

Hope he talks about family values. This man's history of marriage is a wonderful example of these values.

Almost as good as Rush......

Guess Newt is looking for number 4 among the KU "hottie's"?

Oh! , I was hoping he was going to discuss his concept for the colonization of the Moon, Mars or the Sun. Be advised to take you meds before going to the talk.

He's plugging his new book, The Six Wives of Henry VIII, I'm Halfway There.

Yes... go see what Newt says. Pay no attention to what he does. People don't care about what he does... only about what he says; after all, only HE can say the things he says.

Newt is a brilliant speaker and historian. Should be educational and fun after the Romney Ryan victory.

With the election a week into our rearview mirror, passions hopefully will have calmed by then. I have intention of going, but those who do I hope will treat our guest as a guest.

There will be more wool socks and birkenstocks than you can shake a bong at protesting.

Well, I wonder if he's bringing his guy in the big Grey Elephant costume? Guy's just trying to sell his silly books.
