Newt Gingrich: Still A Douche

Newts gets chummy with a fascistRemember last month when Newt called us gays fascists for having the temerity to stand up for our basic human rights? Turns out he totally didn't mean it. Well, he did mean it, but only sort of. Just in a "very narrowly focused" way. Oh, okay, I guess that's alright then. Seriously, does he think anyone is buying that? Does anyone really believe the phrase "gay and secular fascism in this country that wants to impose its will on the rest of us" refers to anyone other than the millions of people, gay and straight, secular and religious, who fought to defeat Prop 8 and similar measures? Those of us who stood up and said "you are not going to reduce us to second-class citizens anymore"?

I don't know what's more galling, Newt's outright lies on the matter, or his mealy-mouthed refusal to actually defend his beliefs. Wevs, Newt, you're still a douche.
