I blame the fact that Bachmann desperately panders by acting like a lunatic and a pathological liar (combined, perhaps, with her inflated sense of self-importance and the reality that she doesn't have influence in Washington or any major accomplishments).

I don't think that any of the other candidates take her seriously, and she's the single major Republican candidate who in my view really shouldn't be, in any way.

Newt thinks everyone who disagrees with him, is a lower being then himself. If you agree with him, you are pals, if you don't, well, he attacks.

Plus its Bachmann, she isn't exactly the hallmark of intellectual rigor.

Yes, Newt condescends to everyone, because he thinks he is smarter than everyone else.

Newt's whole appeal is based on his mastery of condescension and contempt. He's like that with everyone since he buys into his image as an "intellectual".

Probably no more sexist than any other old white religious Republicrat.  I don't pay attention to debates or anything, though.

As a historian, I can confidently say that Gingrich has a long history of talking down to both women, men, and aliens.

Frankly, this question is idiotic. But, speaking as a historian who led the fight against communism, there's no question that there may have been times, when, driven by how strongly I feel about this country, I appeared sexist.

I couldn't resist. I should really go home and think about why I would even ask this today.

This thread is so far outside my comprehension that you must be a product of Kenyan anti-colonial thinking.

You could make a case that Gingrich is sexist, but I don't think his treatment of Bachmann has much to do with it.  Gingrich holds everyone that isn't Newt Gingrich in utter contempt, and that includes Bachmann and the male candidates alike.
