the important and the not-so-important, horribly conflated.

[Via The Washington Independent]:

Former Republican House speaker Newt Gingrich said Obama and the Democrats will regret their decision to push for comprehensive reform. Calling the bill “the most radical social experiment . . . in modern times,” Gingrich said: “They will have destroyed their party much as Lyndon Johnson shattered the Democratic Party for 40 years” with the enactment of civil rights legislation in the 1960s.

Newt Gingrich, I would love for your words to be ignored and fall into obscurity—but I know they represent the ugly thoughts of too big a chunk of America not to be aired.

You educate us, Mr. Gingrich, with your petulant, bigoted ignorance—on how NOT to view our history, our political culture, and our relationships with other human beings.
