Thread Name: BS: Newt Gingrich
Subject: RE: BS: Newt Gingrich
I predict another flameout- Newt is not capable, imo, of keeping his ego in check.

By the way, I had an uncle with that last name. I had been wondering about the pronunciation of Newt GingRICH as everyone seems to be doing, since my uncle's name is pronounced GingRICK. Last night Newt's sister was on Rachel Maddow's show and confirmed that their family's name is pronounced in the traditional manner.

We pronounced it with the Germanic ch and I would be surprised if that weren't the case within his family.
