Newts are cold blooded:
This allows them survive in various environments.
Newts tend to live under rocks:
These dark, damp places are a great habitat for various reasons; they offer plenty of prey for the newt to feed on, and provide a refuge where the newt can escape predators for prolonged periods of time. The newt is known to enjoy crawling out from under its rock in order to bask in the sun from time to time.
Newts are carnivores and feed on the spineless:
While the newt may seem harmless and gentle as it slithers in the grime; it has teeth and eats the smaller, spineless, and less clever animals that crawl through the muck with it.
The newt undergoes a process called metamorphosis:
The metamorphosis process gives the newt the ability to live in one environment and then completely change in order to live another.
The newt can be toxic:
Newts can secrete a toxin in order to protect itself from predators. This toxin, however, can also make the newt unpopular. Various people have used the toxin as a weapon against others.
Did I mention that it has strange mating habits?
Now to get a little serious. It looks as if Newt is our candidate. Unless something extremely strange happens in the next few weeks, Newt is the guy. The question is, are you ready to support him? If not, are you ready for another 4 years of President Obama?
Newt wasn’t my first, second, or third choice (after that I stopped ranking them), but it seems that in spite of who I vote for in the primary, Newt is going to win. I will vote my conscience, but I will do so with a realistic view of the coming race. Now I have to prepare myself for my own metamorphosis – the position of supporting Gingrich.
While I have my quarrels with Newt, I also happen to like a lot of what he has said. I also happen to like a lot of what Newt has done in the past. So, let me make a new list about things I like about Newt.
Newt isn’t Obama.
Newt is at least listening to conservative ideas and has adopted many of them.
Newt has admitted where he was wrong on many issues (global warming i.e.).
Newt has the ability to make Obama look the fool in debates.
Newt is issue oriented.
Newt isn’t D.C. naïve.
Newt has a keen knowledge of American history.
Newt is right about the problems that are threatening us most at the moment (taxes, health care, jobs, shrinking government*, and energy expansion). *in part
Sure, something can happen in the coming days and Newt is not the ideal candidate… but if he wins, are you ready and willing to look at what you like about Gingrich and what good he might bring?
