"The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.” ~Philip K. Dick
This is a great article from Crooks and Liars, spotlighting Newt Gingrich's essential nastiness.
Newt Gingrich: 'Child Labor Laws Are Stupid'
I mean, really. Didn't we have enough of this sociopath in the 90's?
It's rather fascinating watching the Republicans dither and flail, frantically searching for somebody, anybody, who's Not Mitt. Of course, what they really want is the Zombie Resurrection of Saint Ronnie (with More Tea Party Braaaaaaiiiiinnns!), but unfortunately that's not going to happen. Still, that must make Mitt Romney's shriveled heart shrink just a little more, knowing how much his party is behind him.
This is the sort of thing that might come back to bite the GOP in the ass (assuming Romney gets the nomination).
I tell ya, it's the Greatest Reality Show on Earth.
