Newt Is Dumb, Ctd

A reader piles on:

Newt’s megalomania has the appeal of radical fervor combined with imperious grandeur: think of Napoleon or Peter the Great overturning the old order and establishing a glorious new one. Just what's needed in a constitutional presidency.


Remember, he didn't get tenure at West Georgia College, and that couldn't have been all that hard to do.


I admire much of Professor McWhorter's writings, but is his point about Newt Gingrich's vacant grandiloquence not captured succinctly in the aphorism, "Diarrhea of the mouth, constipation of the mind"?
That just about sums it up.
