America is at risk, he warns. Of course, the last time Gingrich set out to save America, he ended up burning his career. He taught a college course called "Renewing American Civilization." That would not have been a problem except that this modern-day John Adams felt the need to raise $300,000 and $450,000 to bankroll his discourses on American "core values." That's a long pricey schlep from the log cabin.

Later, he was forced to admit that he had given "inaccurate and misleading" information to the House Ethics Committee -- resulting in a $300,000 fine. Presumably Gingrich was "authentically" inaccurate and misleading.

In his new movie, Gingrich has a new co-host -- not Pelosi this time, but wife Callista whom Gingrich was dating while married to the airbrushed-out wife No. 2. Gingrich always has gotten by on the forgetfulness of strangers.
