Newt: Culture Warrior

Serwer tackles Gingrich for lying about Obama's DOMA decision:

Now that Gingrich appears poised to announce a presidential exploratory committee (his odd history with them nonwithstanding), it's time to stop pretending that he's somehow more policy oriented or less extreme than the other candidates. Gingrich is just as likely as Sarah Palin to offer culture war demagoguery in place of substantive policy arguments, the only difference is that he's more successful at framing culture war red meat in pseudo-intellectual terms.
