Today’s New York Times features a Political Memo that puts the accent on Newt Gingrich:
WASHINGTON — To the long list of rich-guy foibles that turned into defining campaign moments — John Edwards’s $400 haircut, John Kerry’s kite-surfing, John McCain’s inability to remember how many homes he owns — let us now add Newt Gingrich’s $500,000 revolving line of credit at the luxury jeweler Tiffany & Company.
Worthy examples all. But let’s not forget Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s $3000-a-night suite at New York’s Sofitel hotel, the posh venue of his alleged sexual assault on a maid.
That’s one helluva a rich-guy foible.
