Newtie indulges in still more apostasy

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is becoming more and more the Republican maverick these days, dissing his own party and its president at almost every turn.

In his latest salvo, Gingrich told a gathering of college conservatives that President Bush is losing his "phony" war on terror and that the nation needs "leaders who are prepared to tell the truth...about the failures of the performance of Republicans...failed bureaucracies...about how dangerous the world is."

Last week, Gingrich said in a nationally televised interview that Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is "a liability for the United States of America" and should resign.

As for whether he'll run for the Republican presidential nomination, Gingrich remains coy, not exactly ruling it out but acting as if it's unlikely.
