Newt Gingrich is the essence of what’s wrong with the Republican Party. He knows that negative “feelings” are unwarranted, but instead of being a leader and correcting misconceptions, he preys on fears to secure power for his allies.
He’s the kind of person who would have done quite well in Germany in the 1920s and ’30s. He would allow a dictatorship to happen, and he should be banned from all media.
But that’s not going to happen. So let’s watch as he supports the dictator with the disco beat, and dances our way to social disintegration.
