Got Brass?

The American Thinker has a Billy Kristol article on Newt Gingrich's reaction to the first question of last week's Presidential debate in South Carolina.
To that end the media has distorted the public's view in every way possible. My first experience of this was the treatment afforded Adlai Stevenson and Dwight Eisenhower, If you are old enough to remember -- or well read enough to have learned -- the American press pictured Adlai Stevenson as a brilliant man and Dwight Eisenhower, the head of the European Theater of Command, an historic and monumental achievement, as a bumbling idiot. It was only well after the election that we learned that Stevenson had flunked out of his first year at Harvard Law School and the school's Dean had locked those records of that fact away. This press generated dichotomy -- of Democrats smart, Republicans stupid -- continues to this day.

[...]Nevertheless the opening question by John King at the CNN sponsored Republican debate was an attempted "gotcha" on this interview.

This time, Newt fired back to repeated standing ovations by the audience and the admiration of those of us who have grown both tired and infuriated by the obvious media bias.
Newt has demonstrated that he will not be intimidated by the media and he will not accept their typical tar-and-feather treatment of anyone but an accepted liberal candidate. Newt showed that his set are made of brass.

And as for the cheap media whore, CNN's John King, wipe that nasty crap drooling out of your mouth and go get your $20 from the DNC.

Nothing the liberal press does surprises me.

I'm not a Newt fan, but I loved that bashing he gave CNN.

Enjoy the afterglow. They will get their revenge.

He cut that fool three with his tongue three ways; deep, wide and continuous.

Odie - that's why it is nice to have someone like Newt who can take a hack like King and turn him inside out.

Silverfiddle - I am not a Newt fan myself, but as this race develops I am beginning to like him more and more.

Not a single candidate is perfect and I really do not care for Romney, but I will settle for somonewho will knock out Obugger.

Subvet - Yes sir, and he did it with style and authority.

It was so refreshing to see Newt take that DNC shill to the mat. For far too long, candidates on the right, er... Correct side of the aisle have looked like mr. milquesop in the face of these tawdry barbs and assaults. I truly hope he's emboldened the rest of the tribe.

Andy - In that respect, and perhaps very few others, Newt can be viewed as a role model.
