Joel Award: Newt Gingrich

It is time to give out the Joel Award. The award goes any celebrity, pundit, blogger or politician that purposely contradicts himself or herself.

"If you have mandatory carbon caps combined with a trading system, much like we did with sulfur . . . it’s something I would strongly support."

Newt Gingrich, in 2007

Gingrich did a flip and a flop two years later.


"Let me get this straight," said Gingrich. "We're not going to raise tax on anybody making under $250,000 a year unless you use electricity. And we are not going to raise taxes on anybody under $250,000 a year unless you buy gasoline. And we are not going to raise taxes on anybody who makes under $250,000 a year unless you buy heating oil. And we're not going to raise taxes on anybody who earns less $250,000 a year unless you use natural gas."


Newt Gingrich not sincere about policy? I'm shocked! Shocked, I say!
