Black Is White, Up Is Down, Newt Is Making Sense

"Republican political doctrine has been a failure," Gingrich said. "Look at New Orleans. How can you say that was a success? Look at Baghdad ... We've been in charge for six years and I don't think you can look around and say that was a great success.

And more in this short Salon piece.

It looks as though Gingrich has discovered what most of us already know, but the Republican candidates for President in 2008 don't. It may not go over well with the Stepford Students, but it will (and has been, if you believe the polls) with America, blue states and red. I think the war in Iraq, health care and the environment are going to be the three biggest issues on the minds of U.S. voters in the next election, now that the Democratic-led Congress has started cleaning up corruption in Washington and working to diminish poverty.

Newt's still f%^&in' crazy, and chances are he's just trying out campaign rhetoric on the public to research his campaign message. It's tough to imagine anyone being more screwed up than Giuliani, but Newt might be your guy.
