Politically speaking, he may be a polarizing figure, but for pure interesting-ness, it’s hard to beat Newt Gingrich, famed leader of the Republican Revolution during the Clinton years, creator of the (oft-imitated but not equaled) Contract with America, and the preferred target of the Left for most of the Nineties.  He is also the subject of most of the neater political stories that I’ve heard.  Back in my post-college years, my friends on the Hill used to talk about the fact that he had a dinosaur skull in his office and tell stories about his wit (which occasionally came at their expense).  One liberal-leaning guy I know (who saw in him in Iowa recently) mentioned that Gingrich seemed the most literate and interesting speaker of the GOP candidates that abound in Iowa this this time of year.  Well, Hawaii may not have a Straw Poll or early primary to boast of, but some of us will be lucky enough to see Speaker Gingrich this weekend at the Tea Party event on Maui.  If you can make it, I highly recommend you go (and let us know what you thought).  For more details,you can contact Tea Party Maui.  Here is the info from their original announcement:

Mark your calendars for this Saturday, August 20th. Come and spend an hour listening to and asking questions of Speaker Newt Gingrich. As you know, Gingrich is an icon of recent American history and a 2012 Presidential candidate. He is an author, film maker, and historical scholar. He was the architect of the 1994 Contract with America that led to the end of 40 years of Democrat Party rule in the U.S. House of Representatives and multiple years of BALANCED FEDERAL BUDGETS.  He is also one of the most interesting speakers you will hear on Maui in 2011. Newt has a broad knowledge of politics and puts past and current events into perspective with his in depth knowledge of history.

Speaker Gingrich will be on Maui this Saturday, August 20th. The event begins at 5:30pm at the Door of Faith Church, 432 Waiehu Beach Rd, Wailuku click here for a map (out by Sack n’ Save). The event will last about 1 hour, possibly 1 1/2 hour during which he will speak and answer questions. The event is free and open to the public; there will be plenty of parking and seating.

I attended the Maui speaking engagement of Gingrich. I and all of the 150 attendees were greeted with a personal handshake from Mr. Speaker what a way to start this intimate event. Gingrich was classic Gingrich. He was very articulate while presenting a plan for America. What a concept, a politician with an actual plan. 5 thumbs up for Newt.
