What does a politician do after he leaves office: write amazon reviews

In response to our last post, a reader named “A” pointed us towards an interesting article about Newt Gingrich’s second career as an amazon reviewer.

Gingrich cracked the coveted “top 500 reviewer” rank in 2004, but has now slipped to #599.

Gingrich abruptly stopped reviewing in December 2004. I guess we will never get to know his opinion on Freakonomics. (We probably wouldn’t have learned anyway since he only posts reviews of the books he enjoys.)
