This mind-boggling piece of garbage got mostly buried in the jungle of 24-hour news. It should be seen. If you haven't yet seen it, be patient for a moment through the Chris Matthews intro before you get to the red meat. This man, Newt Gingrich, has not until quite recently been widely perceived as a right-wing fanatic; and the fact that he puts himself forward as a rational spokesman for Republican ideals and goals should make us all shudder. Please listen to what he has to say. And note the audience response, cheering the ravings of this mad man as though they were Gospel.
