Mired in stupidity

Newt Gingrich may come to regret having said it, but he’s certainly right that the Republican party is mired in stupidity. As evidence, we need look no further than their choice of candidate in the 2012 election run, and Romney’s subsequent behavior during the campaign. A prime example of seizing defeat from the jaws of victory.

So it would be good if the Republicans got out of the mire. But Newt thinks Republicans should build their entire philosophy on the right to life? Now, if what he means by that is the right of each individual to control his own life and property with minimum government interference, then hurrah! But we understand the code: government enforced prohibition of abortion. The other guys’ social engineering vision is wrong; let’s do my form of social engineering, instead.

Mired in stupidity, indeed.
