Daily Feed: Gingrich on Romney: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

Gingrich on Romney: Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire — But I’d Still Vote For Him. On the morning of the Iowa caucuses, Gingrich takes one last stab at his chiseled opponent:

CBS: I have to ask you, are you calling Mitt Romney a liar?”

Gingrich: “Yes.”

CBS: “You’re calling Mitt Romney a liar?”

Gingrich: “Well, you seem shocked by it!”

Mind you, he assures us, this will not stop him from voting for his rival if it should ever come down to Mitt “Lying Through his Perfect Teeth” Romney versus Barack “Tearing the Country Apart” Obama. Yes, we’re sure the Mittster appreciates the totally backhanded, highly reluctant vote of confidence. [CBS News]

Got a Driveway? Need Some Money? British convenience startup ParkatmyHouse.com is headed to Boston this week to help wayward automobiles and desperate drivers find a ready driveway in which to park. According to their figures, since the company’s start in 2006, it has already earned participating driveway-owners some $5 million, and allowed drivers to save as much as 70 percent of the parking costs they’d otherwise be paying. Could this be a parking win-win? Is there such a thing in Boston? [Herald]

In Case You Thought The MBTA Was Starting the Year Out Right, Somebody’s Stealing Their Catalytic Converters. In the last year, they’ve lost 89 of the devices — stolen, it’s believed, for the metal. Thieves, look: we know money is scarce and all, but that’s all the more reason the rest of us need the T, and out of pretty much all the organizations out there around town, the T is the last that can freely pull the cash out of their pockets to buy a bunch of new parts.
