Gingrich, Fresh From Playing Himself, Leads With His National Security Glass Jaw

On Twitter, Newt insists that he misspoke: It wasn’t would-be-shoebomber Richard Reid (nationality: British) who was an American citizen; he meant Jose Padilla. This is supposed to inspire confidence in his sagacity as a terrorism expert. Not that this makes any more sense. Jon Stewart asked Gingrich about not Mirandizing Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab if Richard Reid got the Miranda treatment. Why would Gingrich’s mind jump to Jose Padilla? It’s almost like Gingrich is unable to keep basic facts straight but won’t let that intrude upon his politically predetermined analysis.
