Ecclesiastical and political pragmatism, with a beat
Saturday, January 21, 2012
Andrew Sullivan perfectly captures the ruthless demagoguery of Newt Gingrich's speech tonight. He said the president believes in the organizing principles of socialist Saul Alinsky (how foreign that name sounds, doesn't it? Gingrich keeps using it) instead of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Is he saying the president is unpatriotic? Mr. Gingrich, do you believe Barack Obama is a loyal American or not? A sad day for South Carolina and a desperate moment for the Republican Party. What's your plan, Mitt? If you can't stop him, then the abyss.
