Newt Gingrich feeds the lions on M.L. King day

Newt Gingrich really knows how to hit the hot buttons.  The contempt in his voice and the punchlines drive the Fox Republican Presidential Debate crowd into wild cheers.  The poor are lazy. They need to be taught to work.  The unions are out of control - New York City should fire janitors and hire kids.  "More people have been put on food stamps by Barack Obama than any president in American history."  "I'm going to continue to help poor people learn how to get a job, get a better job and learn how to own the job".  Charles Blow comments in the Times "It is Gingrich's gift to make ill will sound like good will."  This is how the former Speaker and South Carolina Republicans marked the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. who died in Memphis where he was supporting the sanitation workers struggle for better wages. - GWC
