It’s Not the Heat, It’s Not the Humidity – We Don’t Know What It Is

Strange things happen in the dog days of summer, and one of the strangest ever is this report from Taegan Goddard on Newt Gingrich and his position on the United State’s ability to transform other countries into functioning democracies.

Gingrich Questions Ability to Export Democracy

Newt Gingrich told the Washington Times that the United States' ability to "export democracy" needs to be reevaluated and that "alternative strategies" should be considered.

Said Gingrich: "I am a neoconservative. But at some point, even if you are a neoconservative, you need to take deep breath to ask if our strategies in Middle East have succeeded. It may be that our capacity to export democracy is a lot more limited than we thought."

Wow, an intelligent and thoughtful observation.  Don’t worry, this shouldn’t last and everyone is pretty certain that come September Mr. Gingrich will have reverted to the person he really is.
