Unlike most of the contenders for the Republican Presidential nomination, Newt Gingrich has been highly visible in his political career for a very long time. Most of us remember the public scandals of ten years ago when he served his wife with divorce papers while she was in treatment for cancer. He has never exactly been a sympathetic character. However, in recent weeks as he rises to the top of the garbage heap that is the GOP race, it seems that people have forgotten what made him such a bad choice.
After all, he wasn’t sexually harassing or assaulting any women, was he?
He can remember his own political positions, can’t he?
He isn’t Mitt Romney, is he?
Therefore, really, can he be so bad?
On Saturday, he spoke at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government about what he believes has, “done more to create income inequality in the United States than any other single policy.” He was talking about child labor laws.
That’s right, Newt Gingrich wants to get rid of labor unions, and give their jobs to poor kids.
Because working all day and night for less than minimum wage is really going to help them get ahead more than… say… an education.
Thanks, Newt. We can all go back to being disgusted with you now.
