Last night on the Daily Show, in relation to the underwear bomber, Jon Stewart asked why the reading of Miranda rights to him was wrong, but it was okay for the Bush administration to do so with the shoe bomber, Richard Reid. Gingrich responded that Richard Reid was an American citizen, and Stewart(who's been very careless with some of his conservative interviewees lately, like John Yoo) did not challenge him on it. He did mention it briefly later, before the credits, once Newt was gone, but Gingrich was able to get it out there.
Gingrich is a fucking liar. As everyone knows, Richard Reid is not a US citizen.He was born in Bromley(better known to some as the home of the "Bromley Contingent," from which Siouxsie & the Banshees sprung), in England, and is a British subject.
Newt Gingrich knows this and is trying to spread a new talking point, using Frank Luntz' newly announced strategy of just lying about Obama. The idea of which, I'm assuming, is to make Obama waste time countering all the lies till he's overwhelmed. As Fox News and talk radio have proven(hell, this is Ann Coulter's only purpose), if you throw enough lies out there, and keep it up for at least two weeks, eventually people will believe most of them. Not so much really "belief" as "acceptance," actually, like dust collecting in the air and settling all over you.
