Personal attacks? From Republicans?! You don't say.

Cornell Putz clutches his pearls:

The attacks on Newt Gingrich from the Romney campaign and it supporters in the Beltway political and media echelons have become quite personal.

The fervor reminds me not so much of a heated argument on the merits, but of a child custody proceeding in which Romney seeks to have Newt not only lose custody of his putative nomination but also be declared an unfit parent due to mental illness.

Wow, since when do Republicans engage in personal attacks and not debate the merits?

I mean its the left who accuse the president of being an anti-American, weak, dim-witted, indecisive Kenyan Marxist crypto-Muslim.

“What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]?” Gingrich asks. “That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior.”
