If you are a regular reader, you may remember about a month and half ago (or, 30 Trump scandals and 115 Trump WTF? lies ago) a two-bit wingnut conspiracy pimp names "Judge" Andrew Napolitano, was sent to the media penalty-box for embarrassing Fox News shareholders.
Specifically, he was kicked to the curn for trafficking in the "Obama wiretapped Trump" lie in great and authoritative depth and detail. Which would have been just one more in an endless procession of Fox News lies -- lies which fly into the empty heads of Fox News viewers, nest for awhile, and then flutter away as they are displaced by the next Fox News lie -- but for the fact that President Stupid very publicly grabbed it and ran with it and blew everything up.
At the time, this was the verdict of the L.A. Times:
People familiar with the situation who could speak only on the condition of anonymity said Napolitano is not expected to be on Fox News Channel any time in the near future. Napolitano was not available for comment...
And, at the time I suggested that readers reset their Gingrich Rules Countdown Clocks to zero because...
By and large, the rule for Conservatives who live on the wingnut-welfare teat is, when they publicly step on their own dicks spectacularly enough to displease the money guys, the Gingrich Rules kick in: 30 days on the bench, after which they are reintroduced back to the media ecosystem via some "legit" format during which no mention whatsoever will be made of what got them on bad paper with the network in the first place.And if it turns out that Napolitano doesn't swing enough weight to rate the Gingrich treatment? Or if the mud he splashed was too injurious to the corporation to warrant early parole from the dog house? Well that's why "senior legal contributor" positions at Breitbart, National Review or Russia Today are invented.
Well guess who's back, baby!!!

Fox's Napolitano Speculates That Comey Was Fired So Hillary Clinton "Can Be Indicted For Espionage"
Judge Andrew Napolitano: "Let Me Suggest Another Scenario ... Maybe [Hillary Clinton] Should Have Been, And Still Can Be Indicted For Espionage"
In a world gone mad, you can always count on The Gingrich Rules.
