Still making shit up.
Newt Gingrich explained that it was okay to mirandize "shoe bomber" Richard Reid and not Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab because Reid, unlike Abdulmutallab, is a US citizen.

Only, of course, Reid is a British citizen.
Republicans have only one playbook. For the economy, it says "cut taxes for the wealthy and deregulate business"; for foreign policy, it says "paint Democrats as weak." I guess it's not so much a playbook as an index card. As we saw in the case of Dr. Koop, things that don't matter? 1) Any of the real-life consequences. 2) Facts.
