From Newt Gringrich. Yes, that Newt Gingrich:
Politics has become a really nasty, vicious, negative business and I think it’s disgusting and I think it’s dishonest.
I realize that keen self-awareness is probably a handicap for a big-time politician, but seriously? Newt Gingrich is complaining about how vicious politics has gotten? Newt Effing Gingrich? Jesus.
In other news, Politico reports that Ron Paul has suddenly become media shy now that he too faces questions about his past positions — positions that he’s lying about and doesn’t want to answer for. Imagine that. He’s just another garden-variety politician after all.
