Newt Gingrich — the founding father (or, perhaps, patron saint) of Republican obstructionism — was a guest prognosticator on The Hannity Hysteria Hour last night, and he happily explained how the next three or four years are going to go down now that health care reform has passed (Warning: Spoiler Alerts!)…
"My prediction is you're going to get a Republican Congress in 2010 in the election. They're going to come in and they're going to refuse to fund any of these new offices. And they're just kind — they won't pass the appropriations," said Gingrich.
Ooooo… Spooky! Look further… further into the future… What do you see, O Great Eye of Newt?
"Then in 2012, you get a new president. And I think probably in February of 2013, they repeal the entire bill. Replace the good parts. Because there are some things — out of 2600 pages, there are probably 200 pages that are pretty good."
Unfortunately, things get kind of hazy for Newt after that, so he can't predict with such pinpoint precision if all the liberals in the country will convert to conservativism by divine revelation, or if they'll just simply be killed. Either way, I'm sure we all wait with baited breath.
