Newt Gingrich


Our mother had loved Sharon Schieber and hated Connie Chung—she’d never forgiven her for embarrassing Newt Gingrich’s mother on TV, something about Newt calling Hillary Clinton a b-i-t-c-h. I don’t remember the actual interview, just our mom’s outrage over it.
Gillian Flynn  --  Gone Girl
  Speaker of the House (1994-1998); co-author of Contract with America which ushered a Republican majority House for the first time in 40 years; recently founded American Solutions think tank (b. 1943)

Notes:
Gingrich arguably made a string of poor political decisions and suffered a barrage of attack ads leading to his resignation as Speaker of the House as resignation from the House in 1998.
