Newt Gingrich- the Man with the Big Ideas! We know that this is true, because we get told so every day. But, what are these big ideas, other than the standard, run-of-the-mill Conservative bitching? I've kind of been wondering that lately, and so, evidently, has Ezra Klein.
Think about it and I believe you will join Ezra and me in the conviction that the whole notion of Gingrich as a Big Idea Man is just one more pathetic Republican delusion, like the preposterous notion that Gingrich is a brilliant historian, or that Romney is just an ordinary guy whose brilliance as a businessman made him rich.
They have no ideas. They have no statesmen or disinterested leaders. They have no historians or honest businessmen. They have nothing but greed and hatred. Sadly, a significant portion of the American people also don't seem to have anything else in their hearts, so God knows how much luck Republicans are going to have at convincing voters to stab themselves in the back so people like Gingrich and Romney can have whatever they want.
