Here's Newt Gingrich, lying furiously:
You have Obama nominating Judge Hamilton, who said in her ruling that saying the words Jesus Christ in a prayer is a sign of inappropriate behavior, but saying Allah would be OK. You'll find most Republican senators voting against a judge who is confused about whether you can say Jesus Christ in a prayer, particularly one who is pro-Muslim being able to say Allah.
Tomasky does an excellent job documenting what actually happened:
Naturally, it's all a lie, but as I said, even I was shocked at how rancidly despicable a lie it was.It's a great read.
It seems like Newt has taken this whole "bright lines between the parties" thing a little too much to heart. He seems to be nothing more than a universal Obama-Negation machine. If Obama is for it, Newt is against it, even if he was for it just 3 years ago. His political persona has devolved into one of unthinking, reflexive opposition to a President that is governing with a substantial electoral and public approval mandate.
I guess someone's gotta do it, huh? It might as well be someone that will never run for President.
