1 American Worker = 5 GOP Blowhards

I didn’t watch the debate last night because I can only stomach so much dishonesty and pandering in any give 24 hour period.  Thankfully others online cover it so I don’t have to.  Kay, a blogger at Balloon Juice, had a most amusing and insightful take on Newt’s BS.  Here’s just some of what she had to say:

Newt Gingrich told us all last night that nine year olds can replace the grown men and women who currently do these jobs. Newt Gingrich believes janitors and cafeteria workers and people who work in school libraries and offices can and should be replaced by children.

That’s how much respect Gingrich has for the work that these people do.

I recommend the entire thing.

  1. I always figured that Newt would be the kinda guy who’d want to bring back child labor… Probably debtors prisons too. Gingrich should never be allowed to read Charles Dickens – he’ll miss the point entirely and think that Dickens was outlining a blueprint for social progress.

      Today he doubled down on his rhetoric by saying he would like to punch the President in the face. So not only is he a racist pig and well known philanderer, he apparently has the conflict resolution skills of a 5 yr old. And this guy was the great GOP hope about a week ago!

    The good ol’ Southern Racism was out in force last night. Even earned Gingrich a standing o. Gotta love the south…

      It’s nuts isn’t it? If you think about it the audience gave a standing ovation to an overtly insulting and racist proposal. That is the kind of thing that frightens me…that so many people are either mislead or racist and are willing to declare in front of the whole world without fear of any repercussions.
