Gussie Fink-Nottle Loved Newts
An overcast Saturday morning but Yahoo's weather man (or woman ?) predicts a sunny afternoon.
In response to a message in which I wrote "I'd rather take Gussie Fink-Nottle", friend KCR commented last week about Ipsos poll
and the GOP contenders, among them Newton Leroy Gingrich who has yet to make an official declaration about his candidacy. "As for newt lovers, we too would take the harmless Fink-Nottle over the sliver-haired (and tongued) Newt any time. But we dont have that luxury. Old Gussie never surfaced again after his nuptials with the saintly Madeline. We suspect he is comfortably ensconced in English rustica and takes refuge from his wife's views on elves and fairies by escaping to the local pub where he regales the local citizenry with long dissertations on the sex lives of newts."
Like KCR, Newt Gingrich I can do without. He is a scumbag and so is his former friend in the House -- Tom DeLay of Sugarland, TX. Gussie Fink-Nottle and other characters created by the late P.G. Wodehouse are different creatures. Jeeves, Bertie Wooster, Honoria Glossop, Bingo Little -- they can make one smile, brighten a day when the headlines scream about deaths in Iraq, the machinations of the smarmie Alberto Gonzales and other Bushies.
