Debate Genius Doesn’t Understand the Concept of the First Amendment

24 Jan

Newt Gingrich is a free speech crusader and a defender of downtrodden academics, business leaders, and ambassadors.  He is willing to sacrifice precious time he’d spend making well-reasoned arguments such as “Obama is a food stamp president” on national television to allow grown adults to clap whenever they damn well please. Do you know what a sacrifice this is for an egotistical blowhard articulate debater like Speaker Ginrich?

He is such an inspiration that I’m going to yell and applaud at inappropriate times during a  movie and I won’t “allow” anyone to ask me to stop. The movie theaters don’t control free speech!

    I think the moderators have a duty to honor Pig Newton’s requests and exclude him from further debates.

    It’s only fair to let the audience sing the Horst Wessel Song.

    Newt is a stupid person’s idea of a smart person.

    I have to confess, though, that I am enjoying the mutual destruction pact he and Romney seem to have formed. There’s a Shakespearean tragicomedy here… Romneyo and Newtiet?

    I’m actually half-hoping he’s the nominee because I think the debates would be HILAAAAAAAAAAAARIOUS.
