FromÂ 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 partyâ€™s most creative thinkers.
Hmmm.Â What might be the content of this “deep well of ideas”?Â What makes Gingrich one of his party’s “most creative thinkers”?
Well, there’s this:
[His message is]Â 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: â€œ2 + 2 = 4.â€
My God!Â How deep!Â How creative!Â And this:
â€œTo a surprising degree, we are in a situation similar to Polandâ€™s in 1979,â€ he told the audience, which had gathered at a banquet for Ohio Right to Life, one of the nationâ€™s oldest anti-abortion groups. â€œIn 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.â€
I’m in awe.Â What a profound understanding of comparative government and the long arc of history!
Your liberal media at work.
