This country has so many serious, structural problems and threats that I don’t understand why Newt Gingrich is busy looking for trouble where it doesn’t exist. For example, he’s promising to protect our courts from Sharia law. If you’re unemployed and close to losing your house and having to take your kids’ beloved dog to the shelter, Sharia law is not what’s keeping you awake at three in the morning with your heart pounding.
I guess if you live in a mansion in McLean and shop at Tiffany’s and go on Greek cruises, you’re so insulated from real life that you can spend your time conjuring up imaginary threats to scare ignorant people into voting for you. What a sick and sorry way to run for our highest office.
