Michael Steele makes a number of old-time Republicans very nervous,” Gingrich said. “He comes out of a different background. He went to seminary … he’s African-American … But I think he’s pretty close to what we need. He’s different, he’s gutsy and he’s going to make a number of Republicans mad.
Uh huh, yeah, okay…wh-wha-wait a minute! Back it up! He’s African-American?!?
Newt really doesn’t need to say any of the other stuff, we know that’s just cover. Like when the kid in “American Graffiti” tries to buy liquor: “Let me have a Three Musketeers, and a ball point pen, and one of those combs there, a pint of Old Harper, a couple of flash light batteries and some beef jerky.”
Republicans are funny that way.
