The Republican primaries might be the best comedy show in decades if each member of the confederacy of dunces decides to run. Goofballs like Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann set the standard here, but other like Rick Santorum and Mike Huckabee are doing their best to join this confederacy with their own idiotic statements.
And then we have Newt Gingrich, whose attempts to explain away his past adultery are pure comedy gold. Newt is smarter than buffoons like Palin and Bachman, but he’s also the smarmiest politician in recent memory. He’s mean-spirited and a hypocrite, and yet he thinks he can lecture others on morality. Lawrence O’Donnell has some fun with Newt’s most recent attempt to cite a “forgiving God.”
