From Jeff Zeleny’s puff piece on disgraced fromer House speaker Newt Gingrich:
Rival Republicans marvel at his deep well of ideas, his innate intellect and his knowledge of government.
If Mr. Gingrich moves forward with a presidential bid, as his advisers and friends say he is poised to do as soon as this week, he will start with a reputation as one of his party’s most creative thinkers.
Hmmm. What might be the content of this “deep well of ideas”? What makes Gingrich one of his party’s “most creative thinkers”?
Well, there’s this:
[His message is] so concise that he pulls it from the breast pocket of his suit, no matter if he is delivering an intimate dinner speech or addressing a large audience, as he did recently at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
The note card reads: “2 + 2 = 4.”
My God! How deep! How creative! And this:
“To a surprising degree, we are in a situation similar to Poland’s in 1979,” he told the audience, which had gathered at a banquet for Ohio Right to Life, one of the nation’s oldest anti-abortion groups. “In America, religious belief is being challenged by a cultural elite trying to create a secularized America, in which God is driven out of public life.”
I’m in awe. What a profound understanding of comparative government and the long arc of history!
Your liberal media at work.
