Radical In Which Way????

TalkingPointsMemo has the latest crap that has come out of Newt Gingrich's mouth:

Newt Gingrich on Sunday hammered at the nation’s judiciary system, saying that if a court’s decision was out of step with American popular opinion, it should be ignored.

There’s “no reason the American people need to tolerate a judge that out of touch with American culture,” Gingrich said on CBS’ Face the Nation, referring to a case where a judge ruled that explicit references to religion were barred from a high school graduation ceremony. And Gingrich recently has said judges should have to explain some of their decisions before Congress.

Host Bob Schieffer asked Gingrich how he planned to enforce that. Would you call in the Capitol Police to apprehend a federal judge, he asked. 

“If you had to,” Gingrich said. “Or you’d instruct the Justice Department to send the U.S. Marshall in.”

I think that Gingrich is the radical.  Hasn't he ever studied about the three branches of government, separation of powers, and checks and balances?  Doesn't he claim to be a "historian" or something?  Gingrich and 99.9% of the Republican Party are the radicals.  They support corporations over human beings.  They promote charter and private schools and want to take tax payer money away from public schools.  The Republicans are the radicals.

Gingrich's "family values" are clearly out of the mainstream of American life.  Dumping wives as though they are old shoes does not allow me to put any support behind a man who has regularly cheated on his wives.  His ethics violations do not show a man that knows the difference between right and wrong (and the Republican pollsters cannot understand why women won't support Newt! Ha!).

Gingrich is just an egomaniac that thinks he is a legend, and a genius. Luckily, he has a small following of confused supporters that believe his rubbish.
