If Newt Gingrich were half as smart as he thinks he is, he'd be twice as smart as he is.

Why does Gingrich feel the need to constantly try to make people think he's smarter than everyone else?

First he said that he understood the Constitution better than lawyers because he's an HISTORIAN! Oooooh!

Now, there's this:

"I'm an amateur paleontologist, so I've spent a lot of time looking at the earth's temperature over a very long time," Gingrich said. "I'm a lot harder to convince than just by looking at a computer model." 


Really? You like dinosaurs so you're an expert on, um, something?

Really? You're an amateur scientist so we should trust you over professional scientists?

And, really? You're interest in paleontology qualifies you to comment on climatology? Really? You think your fake expertise in one field of science carries over into other branches? Like "science" is some all-inclusive field of study? Really?


I'm an expert in SCIENCE!
