It's been a tough week for Newt Gingrich. First, he went on Meet the Press and said something. And then people reported on what he said, like a bunch of partisan jerks. (Does the moral turpitude of the liberal media know no bounds?) It's looking like he may need to follow the lead of man with whom he shares a troubled history. Bill Clinton…
Coverage continues after the jump.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11/10c.

So, it's now pretty much officially the end of the year. Not only that, but it's also pretty much officially the end of the decade.
So, not only are people falling over themselves to write Top Ten lists about something or other, but they're falling over the already fallen selves of themselves to write Top Ten lists about something or other. And, let me tell you something. It is Top Ten listy out there. Wow! You cannot throw an Internet rock without hitting a Top Ten list.
So, in keeping with the zeitgeisty spirit of the times, I would humbly like to contribute the following list of Top 10 (At Least Vaguely) Political Top 10* Lists I Found in the Past 10 Minutes. I hope you like it; I put a lot of time into it…
My dream is that this Top 10 list will make it onto somebody's Top 10 list of Top 10 lists of Top 10 lists. Though, I'm sure the competition will be prohibitively stiff.
* Full disclosure. Not all of the Top 10 lists are Top 10 lists. Some are Top 15 lists or even Unnumbered lists. I am so sorry. So so very sorry.

There's currently a big debate in liberal circles about whether the health care reform bill, as it currently stands, is even worth passing at all. And, I'll tell you, it's the absolute worst kind of political debate: a complex one that requires thinking and nuanced reason. (Ugh! Don't you hate those? They're the worst. Please, somebody, just tell me who the Nazi is.)
And on the other side, there are the people, like Howard Dean and Markos Moulitsas, who just want the bill dead. They want its family dead. They want its house burnt to the ground, so they can go there in the middle of the night and piss on its ashes. However — unlike the Teabaggers who oppose this bill because Barack Obama is a Kenyan Muslim atheist communist terrorist Hitler bring back the America I love fuuuuuuuuuuuuucccckkkkkkkkk Glenn Beck is teh awesome!!!! — these people have actual reasons and a passing understanding of logic.

Former DNC chair Howard Dean — frustrated with the Liebermanization of health care reform — is now recommending that since the Democrats can't win the game, they take their ball and go set off a dirty bomb vest that will kill all living things within a 500-yard radius…
"This is essentially the collapse of health care reform in the United States Senate. Honestly the best thing to do right now is kill the Senate bill, go back to the House, start the reconciliation process, where you only need 51 votes and it would be a much simpler bill."
[Vermont Public Radio reporter Bob] Kinzel added that Dean essentially said that if Democratic leaders cave into Joe Lieberman right now they'll be left with a bill that’s not worth supporting.
Good idea, Howard Dean. I have the utmost belief that the Democrats would get this right the second time around.
Of course, I also have the utmost belief that Richard Branson is a huge fan of this blog and that eventually he's going to send a limo over to pick me up and take me away to a tropical island, where he'll pay me millions of dollars to write moderately-informed, hastily conceived political jokes for his amusement.
But, you know me. I'm an optimist.
