Gingrich. Newt Gingrich.

He will not defend the 'indefensible.' Looks like the Conservative bailout is under way.

Last year, in August, I claimed that one year from then, it may be in Republicans' best interests to support impeaching Bush. And now, today, on Fox News of all places, the leader of 1994's Republican Revolution has come out gunz ablaze.

COLMES: Then he said when it came out a little while ago that there was some wiretapping he said it only applies to international communications. And now we're finding something else. So it just seems we’re not getting a consistent story here, are we?

GINGRICH: No. You're not.

COLMES: Why not?

GINGRICH: Look, I'm not-Alan, I’m not going to defend the indefensible. The Bush administration has an obligation to level with the American people. And I'm prepared to defend a very aggressive anti-terrorist campaign, and I'm prepared to defend the idea that the government ought to know who’s making the calls, as long as that information is only used against terrorists, and as long as the Congress knows that it’s underway.

But I don’t think the way they've handled this can be defended by reasonable people. It is sloppy. It is contradictory, and frankly for normal Americans, it makes no sense to listen to these three totally different explanations.

But the bailout is so much worse than just Gingrich. More from Think Progress ...

House Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH): “I am concerned about what I read with regard to NSA databases of phone calls.”

Rep. Deborah Pryce (R-OH): “While I support aggressively tracking al-Qaida, the administration needs to answer some tough questions about the protection of our civil liberties.”

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC): “The idea of collecting millions or thousands of phone numbers, how does that fit into following the enemy?”

Yeouch! It must suck to be Bush right now.

Come on, guys. You know what has to be done. Work with us and we'll work with you. We can restore our great democracy, but we've got to get this dishonest, murderous son of a bitch out of the White House. That's it. That's all there is to it.

We can make it happen. And we'll do it with or without the coming Republican minority this November.

The rainy season has just begun.
