You know who else was "anti-colonial"? The Founding Fathers of the US! British colonialism--they did not like it!
But so much of what Gingrich said about Obama is peculiar.
"I think he worked very hard at being a person who is normal, reasonable, moderate, bipartisan, transparent, accommodating -- none of which was true," Gingrich continues. "In the Alinksy tradition, he was being the person he needed to be in order to achieve the position he needed to achieve. ... He was authentically dishonest."
a) Gingrich has worked very hard at appearing to not be a foam-flecked whackadoodle with about a half-dozen Jerry Springer episodes worth of weird in his closet. Many people are fooled.
b) Has he ever read any Obama criticism from the left? Dumbass.
c) Never heard of Alinsky before 2008--and I always considered myself a lefty. Zinn, Chomsky, yes. Not real familiar with Alinsky. Don't know why he became the Right's hobbyhorse.
d) "Authentically Dishonest" is probably what I would title my unauthorized biography of Newt Gingrich, if a disgraced former Speaker of the House was anything I wanted to do a book on.
e) Wow. Jealousy. Meow.
