Newt Gingrich Was ‘Debating the Left’ When He Cuddled With Nancy Pelosi on a Couch


Time and again, the meager minds of the common people have proven woefully incompatible with the higher-plane mental capabilities of Newt Gingrich. Yet another example of this phenomenon was brought to light earlier today when Gingrich, talking to a New Hampshire radio station, explained the real message he was conveying in a famous 2008 climate change ad featuring himself and Nancy Pelosi.

"I was trying to make a point that we shouldn't be afraid to debate the left, even on the environment," Gingrich said on WGIR radio of the 30-second television commercial. "Obviously it was misconstrued, and it's probably one of those things I wouldn't do again."

Ugh, sorry for misconstruing, Newt. We can be so useless sometimes! In retrospect, your point will probably be self evident. Let's watch it again.

Um, oh geez, this is embarrassing but ... we're still not seeing it. It still just looks you and Nancy Pelosi are sitting on a love seat and agreeing on the need to combat climate change. Your point about debating the left is probably too subtle for us to pick up on. We're so dumb.
