“She turned me into a NEWT” and other ethanol-induced lies.


Quin Hillyer notes . . . Jim Geraghty’s observation of Gingrich’s support for “biofuels.” Quoth Newt:

The other thing I find infuriating about the big city attacks is, this is one industry which brings high-paying jobs and highly skilled people back to rural America. There are now counties where the first or second largest taxpayer and employer in the county is in fact producing biofuels and I think that’s a good thing for rural America. It is great to have jobs that our young people can go to, so they can stay home if they want to, and have a good job, being productive, earning a good living, and doing something they find interesting.

"She turned me into a Newt!"

I find it distressing sometimes when folks in big cities decide they will dictate on their terms, having ridden the mass transit down to the office that they walk to, that they will then decide what should happen to people in rural America. It usually means that people in rural America won’t do as well. It’s just plain fact.

…and I think that’s a good thing for rural America.” Ah! Now there is a standard we should all use.  (Reminds one of another biofuel… produced naturally, without government “incentives,” market corruption or even the approval of Gingrich.)

For those who believe Newt Gingrich is a Conservative:  Caveat Emptor.

    May I assume that you refer to the oft noxious mixture of nitrogen, hydrogen sulfide gas, mercaptans and methane?
