You'd think that Newt Gingrich, who has a degree in history, would know better. But here's a guy who will pretty much say anything that comes out of his lizard brain, without the automatic self-guidance system that the rest of us normal people have.
Here's his latest:
"I have two grandchildren: Maggie is 11; Robert is 9," Gingrich said at Cornerstone Church here. "I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they're my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American."It truly boggles the mind. Of course what the Newster would much prefer, I presume, is that this secular atheist country be dominated by the Xian Right. Yeah, that makes much more sense, and is much more palatable.
And I feel sorry for those two grandchildren, who are being dragged into politics as props for this kind of nonsense. Like Sarah Palin's offspringlets.
But it must be okay, since these are Republicans, the Party of Family Valuestm...
