Newt Gingrich Declares War On Nancy Pelosi
As this whole, "Who loved torture the most, the liberal leather queen Nancy Pelosi or the sadistic dungeon-masters at the CIA?" debate rages, we know we're getting closer to the truth because both sides say the other is lying. And now this fellow "Newt," whowill not sue Twitter, will instead pick a fight with Nancy Pelosi because that is a fine way of keeping this very sensitive issue nonpartisan.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is engaging in a "despicable, dishonest and vicious political effort" to withhold what she knew about the CIA's aggressive interrogation techniques, Newt Gingrich said Friday, in what amounts to the harshest criticism yet leveled at the California Democrat.
"She is a trivial politician, viciously using partisanship for the narrowest of purposes, and she dishonors the Congress by her behavior," Gingrich also said in the blistering interview.
Well, baah. THROW THEM ALL DOWN A WELL. The really disappointing thing about this whole contretemps is that it distracts from the real issue, which is whatever credit card tomfoolery Barack Obama is railing against this week.
