Newt Gingrich, who would like to be the Republican presidential nominee in 2012, has come up with a brilliant proposal, the advocacy of which he evidently thinks will help him achieve that goal: legalize all illegal aliens in the U.S.
Yes, not only does Gingrich support amnesty (while insisting with laughably transparent dishonesty that what he supports is not “amnesty”), he apparently thinks that what Republican voters are most longing for right now (completely unlike, say, in 2007-2008, when the candidacy of McCain, the most vociferous advocate of amnesty in the Republican party, was destroyed until McCain pretended to reverse course and spent several months disowning his pro-amnesty stance and repeatedly and humbly claiming he had “learned his lesson,” a statement which brought his candidacy back from the dead and helped him win the Republican nomination), is a presidential candidate who supports amnesty (while insisting with laughably transparent dishonesty that what he supports is not amnesty).
Here’s the short version of the above sentence: Yes, not only does Gingrich support amnesty, he apparently thinks that what Republican voters are most longing for right now is a presidential candidate who supports amnesty.

Have you ever seen those random generators on the web, like the random Shakespearean Insult Generator? Newt is a random political-program generator. He takes a word like “legalize” and randomly attaches it to various nouns, like “illegal aliens,” “drugs,” “shariah law,” “levitation,” or “prostitution.” The point is not to have a coherent program that would address the nation’s problems, it’s to have something to talk about on the Sean Hannity show.
