I recently heard a great political zinger: Newt Gingrich “is a stupid man’s idea of what a smart man sounds like” (Paul Krugman on This Week with Christiane Amanpour). Sounds accurate to me. Then again, I’ll be laughing out of the other side of my face when the moon becomes the 51st state!
If I were a reporter, I would like to ask Gingrich a question: “Your campaign criticized Romney for speaking French. However, you cite French sources in your dissertation. So do you speak French yourself, or were you lying in your dissertation by representing that you had consulted primary sources you could not actually read?”
