A reader sends in this translation of Newt Gingrich's latest blather:

"I think the Democratic leadership has to take some moral responsibility for having behaved with such arrogance skill, in such a hostile successful way, that the around 22% of the American people are deeply upset. So let’s be honest with this. This is a game that they’re playing, and they’ve just won an inning. People should not engage in personal threats. I’m happy to condemn any effort to engage in personal threats. Don’t let my righteously indignant call to anger, you know, anger you. I think the Democratic leadership has to take some real responsibility for having run a machine that used well-worn Congressional tactics to win corrupt tactics, that bought votes, that bullied people, and as a result has enraged about a fifth much of the American people. And I think it’d be nice for President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Majority Leader Reid to take some responsibility for keeping their campaign promises to the equally “American” remainder of the people of the people of over what their actions have done to this country,"
