Afterthoughts

When I recently read that Newt Gingrich was lower in a popularity poll than Prince Charles, my reaction was - there goes Newt's shot at becoming king.

- What did Newt do to rank lower than the prince? The new, laid-back Charles was photographed recently wearing a suit and tie shooting hoops in a playground. What did Newt do - play hockey somewhere in kilts?- Sen. Trent Lott's contribution to the campaign-reform debate the other day was, "I don't have to take any guff from anybody." I believe it was Ben Franklin who said, "Guff happens."

- OK, Senator, you're not going to take any guff. What about soft money?

- The Republican strategy is to classify campaign funds as free speech. And one thing they hate to do is give a free speech.
