    Newtie still can’t equal the mangled sayings of the late mayor
    Richard J Daley of Chicago (mayor from 1955 to 1976):
    ……………………………………………………………………
    “Gentlemen, get the thing straight once and for all;
    the policeman isn’t there to create disorder,
    the policeman is there to preserve disorder.”
    (from a press conference in the 60’s)

    A headline on Newt.org reads: Newt Explains the American Dream.
    “Listen hear you intellectually inferior people, let me tell what you should dream.”

    “Newtie still can’t equal the mangled sayings of the late mayor

    Which is entirely beside the point: • Daley isn’t running for President (years after he made the statement you quote). • “Mangling” a statement isn’t morally questionable or revealing or anything bad at all (except grammatically). • If that’s all you’ve got on Daley (who’s dead and can’t defend himself), then I would suggest you stick with the real, true evil of Newt Gingrich’s words and actions.

    “Kick him again, Garry — he’s still moving.”
     
    Yeah, he’s moving, moving in on Romney in his intense desire to become — shudder — President of the U.S.
     
    If you think Nixon was corrupt, and if you think Bush II was worse than Nixon, and this progression pleases you, then by all means elect Newt President

    “I discourage a cult of personality” – hey, I thought all the Newtisms were supposed to be funny. That proverb he never had problems living up to.

    Only because no one wanted to join that cult.

    FROM SATURDAY’S STRIP
     
    Sharuniboy: “How does Rove’s description differ from an illustration/explanation of the beginnings of/in Protestantism …?”
     
    dtπ: Rove’s description differs by:
    • coming around half a millennium later: a lot has changed between the time of Luther, Calvin, etc., and the time of Rove.
    • being supremely arrogant and false. Luther would have vomited at Rove’s “in God’s face” assertion that the Bush administration had the power to “create reality”. In Luther’s mind little if anything could be more blasphemous. God would surely smite America for such arrogance (as I would argue He did, given the sorry state of our national image and policy in the war’s aftermath).
     
    Sharuniboy: “How does one “reform” God? Or, perhaps more to the point, how did Luther, et.al. “reform” Him?”
     
    dtπ: One doesn’t. Nor did Luther. The Protestants reformed the church (or at least the part that broke off), not God.
