Quote of the Day

Andrew Sullivan on the Republicans’ loathsome joke of a frontrunner:

Listen to Gingrichs victory speech. It was completely, fundamentally, organizationally Manichean, if youll pardon the expression. He limned a familiar battle between independence and dependence, pay-checks vs food stamps, America vs Europe, the American people vs elites forcing people for 35 years not to be American, the traditional America vs the secular, European style socialist bureaucratic system. There is no gray here. There is no nuance. And there is the imputation to the other side of malign motives, secret agendas and foreignness that has been Gingrichs hallmark since the very beginning, when he assaulted the traditions of the Congress until that institution eventually had to repel him.
