Matt Drudge has finally picked up on the stuff that has been swirling around the Internet the past few weeks regarding Newt Gingrich and his somewhat less than faithful recall of his personal history.
Here is a list of links posted on Drudge and a list of links to other stuff that has yet to be posted on Drudge regarding Caligula Gingrich:

My Newt Links (or, it gets worse)
After the outrageous lie Newt told at the Tampa Bay debate, I posted a video of Newt saying the opposite thing in 1989, that he supported Rockefeller over Goldwater and served as a chairman for Rockefeller. Folks, you can't be more of a Rockefeller Republican than by serving as a committee chairman to get the man elected.
I realize that many of you have a lot invested in Newt. So, might I add, does a certain casino-owning billionaire in Las Vegas. Many people in the Tea Party see Newt as a fighter, as someone who will fight for them. What they don't realize is that the only person Newt ever fights for is himself and his over-sized ego.
Here are some links I posted on Facebook during a conversation about Newt with several people:
These are just what I found in less than an hour of digging. Don't take my word for it, read the links and do some investigating for yourself.
A blogger mulls four reasons not to support Newt:http://meetsarahpalin.blogspot.com/2012/01/i-am-reconsidering-my-support-for-newt.html
The Phony Right-Wing & Who is Selling Us Down the River? – Part 1: Newt Gingrich
Newt Gingrich's support for the near-Communist philosophy of the "Third Wave" thinking promulgated by Alvin and Heidi Toffler http://thereaganwing.wordpress.com/2011/11/20/the-phony-right-wing-part-2-newt-gingrich-the-third-wave/
1987 He supported and voted for a bill to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine (while Reagan was still in office) http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d100%3AHR01934%3A%40%40%40P:..http://www.nationalcenter.org/NPA445.html
However, in 2007, he spoke out against it http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2007/06/newt_gingrich_on_fairness_doct.html
Cosponsored Climate Change Bill With Pelosi that included provisions for funding abortions around the world
Ann Coulter takes us back and reminds us what Newt did then
Newt isn't sure, but he wants to reduce carbon emissions
During a debate with John Kerry, he said global warming is real, that humans have contributed to it and that "we should address it very actively."
He praised Cap and Trade and criticized Bush for backing off from it in 2000 http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2011/dec/07/newt-gingrich/gingrich-claims-he-never-favored-cap-and-trade/ And then he lied about it in 2011
"The Evidence is Sufficient" on Global Warming
Newt and Nancy on Global Warming
I know he recently said it was a mistake since his Presidential bid gained traction. However, as recently as January 2011, he said "I meant exactly what I said in that commercial."
Climate depot has more info on Newt and presents evidence that newt has never really backed away from supporting Global warming and has another book due out on the subject, currently delayed until 2013
Now, I am by no means a master Internet researcher. If I can come up with these links in the span of an hour, what can a real Opposition Researcher come up with over the course of a few weeks of digging around?
I have a lot more links, but I have yet to vet those, and will post them later. Some of them are even more damning than what has already been posted. I've sent some of those to Drudge, hoping that he'll give them the wider exposure they need.
Please, Republican primary voters, reject Newt Gingrich. If you cannot bring yourself to vote for Romney, then vote for Rick Santorum or (gag) Ron Paul.
It is my opinion that Mitt Romeny will prove to be more Reaganesque than you believe. I'm sure that, if you're like Newt, you'll be telling your grandchildren in a few years how you supported Romney from the very beginning.
