Gingrich was on fire last night.
Just got to the series of tubes that forms the internets so I have read the commentary on last night's debate, so this may be old news by now. But Newt Gingrich was in the zone last night in South Carolina. At one point he called out our NATO Ally Turkey as being run by Islamic Terrorists. Turkey, mind you was held up as a model for what Iraq should become after the Iraq War back in the day. Today they are Terrorists. Ramp up the crazy to factor 10.
Next, on a question, about terrorism or the taliban, he referred to history once again, citing Andrew Jackson. Gingrich then relayed that his policy would be the same as Old Hickory's Policy - Kill America's enemies. The Crowd roared with that comment and Gingrich beamed. Left unsaid was that quote from Old Hickory referred to how he'd like to treat secessionists from South Carolina during the nullification crisis of the 1830s. South Carolina. Jackson would hang the first South Carolinian he could find (presumably his own Vice President) from the tallest Tree he could find and lead an army down to South Carolina to finish the job.
The South Carolina wingers is the crowd were actually cheering Jackson's threat to hang disloyal South Carolinians…..not that there is anything wrong with this. -joke/>
Sometimes the wingnuttery is Simply Priceless.
UPDATE: My bad it was Perry who called out Turkey as being run by terrorists.
