Quote of the Day – Newt Gingrich Edition

“Why do you assume food stamps are for blacks. What kind of racist thinking do you have?”

Newt Gingrich to Chris Matthews

Love it.  The facts are that the majority of people on food stamps and other entitlement programs are white.  So when conservatives talk about scaling back on the fraud and the waste of these programs they are not discussing race.  Race is irrelevant in conversations about entitlement programs.

This is why I love Newt, baggage and all.  This needs to be done more often.
