MORE NEWT….Josh Marshall today:

…one can denounce underhanded scheming and still be able to respect it when it’s ably done.

Quite so, quite so.

This is apparently a seque into a discussion of how Newt Gingrich’s recent underhanded scheming against the State Department wasn’t ably done, and indeed it wasn’t. Gingrich, I’m afraid, forgot his own cardinal rule: you’re supposed to attack your enemies, not your friends, and he forgot to ask which one Colin Powell is supposed to be these days. It’s a little surprising that Newt Gingrich, of all people, would need to be reminded of this.
