There’s an odd piece over on Politico today. It’s the collaborative effort of three of its leading writers, about Newt Gingrich. It mentions from the get-go his recent comment about Barack Obama’s “Kenyan, anti-colonial” worldview. The comment was made to our Bob Costa. And Newt was explicitly flagging — and endorsing — Dinesh D’Souza’s thesis about what makes Obama tick, the point of D’Souza’s recent Forbes article and new book. But the Politico piece never mentions the D’Souza book, making Newt sound randomly kooky at best.This just in from Politico: "CORRECTION: Yesterday we incorrectly implied that Newt Gingrich is fucking bonkers. He was actually quoting and endorsing the views of Dinesh D'Souza, who is fucking bonkers. POLITICO regrets the error."
