Gingrich does not recall posing for this portrait

It's almost impossible to change history. On the other hand, no one says you have to own up to your past. Although he has yet to throw his hat into the 2012 Presidential race, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is resting his hopes on the short memory span of the American electorate. For today, and on into the future, Newt Gingrich has no past. At least as far as he can remember.

Events monumental and mundane. Actions that caused his supporters to shout approval, and his detractors to cry foul. He remembers none of it. Doesn't recall the shouts. Didn't hear any cries. Confronted with the facts, he questions the source. A contract with America? A messy divorce? Are you sure you have the right guy? That's a long time ago you're talking about. Do you have your facts straight?

Kited checks? Ethics investigations? Don't ask Newt Gingrich. He doesn't remember a thing about it.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
