Newt Gingrich: 'My Opponents Cannot Comprehend' The Divine Magical Powers Of King Newt
Newt Gingrich went to an Illinois day dinner yesterday, to talk shit. The News Media no longer covers him, because whatever, but someone at the event fortunately had a camera phone to catch his latest formulations of wonder, bigness -- massive hot air balloons of Seriousness. For example: "Democracy is simply a shadow event floating on top of the power of the interest groups.” True!
Then “The level of effort it would take to change the system is beyond the imagination of most elected officials and beyond the imagination of most candidates." True. “The thing I find most disheartening about this campaign is the difficulty of talking about positive ideas on a large scale. Because the news media can’t cover it and, candidly, my opponents can’t comprehend it.” TrUeUe. “Our political system is so methodically and deliberately stupid.” Yes.
The thing is that Newt is probably the worst offender in our political system and the root of most of these problems over the last 20 years, so... hmm. He is funny.
