Newt Gingrich: A New Idiot For The Ages

Leave a comment

This man, Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, and perennial non-candidate for President, is an idiot.  Over the weekend he expressed fear that soon the United States will be an atheist country, dominated by Islamic radicals.  He doesn’t appear to realize that you can’t have a country dominated by atheists if it’s also dominated by Muslims!  (clue for Newt:  Muslims believe in the same God you do!  They just have a different name for him, and a different holey book) (holey is not a typo)

This man is an idiot.  See the CNN report on his weekend nonsense.

Newt, Richard, Al Qaeda, and Who’s Your Daddy?

Open mouth, insert foot. Repeat.

During his appearance last week on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House, asserted that it was completely acceptable to hold and try Richard Reid, the “Shoe Bomber”, in civilian courts, because “he is an American citizen”.  This in response to Stewart’s question why he, at the time, accepted Reid’s prosecution in civilian courts, but is against trying Guantanamo detainees in Federal Courts now.  The only problem?  Reid is a citizen of Great Britain, not the United States.

It would appear Mr. Gingrich suffers from the same affliction many right-wing pundits do – selective memory, or none at all.
