Go, Newt, Go

My, my. What politicians won't do to each other during election time. It would make a war zone look like a yoga retreat.

The fact is that GOP hopeful Newt Gingrich did hug Yasser Arafat, but then Prime Minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin, shook hands with him at the Oslo Accords. Does that mean that he would have done the same now if both were alive. Not at all.

The truth about Gingrich is that the man has more skeletons in his closet that a biology professor at Yale. We know that he did the down and dirty by serving his wife with divorce papers when she was in the hospital with cancer. We know that self-discipline and self-control were never his nicknames unless someone was being sarcastic, and we know that he would get nominated for Miss Congeniality in a beauty pageant.

But given how things have played out in this country, we may not need that. I like that he called Palestinians terrorists because that's what those who lob rockets and grenades at children and civilians are. I liked it when he said that the Palestinians are invented people, because before 1968, they were just your garden-variety hostile Arabs. And I like a politician who has the temerity to tell it like it is. He may be just what we need in these times.

"I liked it when he said that the Palestinians are invented people, because before 1968, they were just your garden-variety hostile Arabs."

You ever wonder if say, we could get the thoughts of 1775's Tecumseh, he might've said something like this:

"I like that he called Palestinians terrorists because that's what those who lob rockets and grenades at children and civilians are."

Probably not the "I like that he called" part - perhaps the latter. But the fact is, as History reveals, everybody lumped into whatever labelled identifier was at some point - invented.
