When Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich took aim and fired at CNN’s John King last night, the shot was not only heard—but even celebrated—across the fruited plain.  

The long suffering peanut gallery known as We the People, steadfastly shut out by the crass mainstream media, exploded in millions of private front room television standing O’s.

1-19-gingrich-embed-debateThe whole of America is going to Hades in a Marxist-manufactured Hand-basket; drowning in debt, marshaled into Banana Republic status through massive loss of jobs and homes just one day after the Obama rejection of the job-providing Keystone Pipeline, and what does King open last night’s debate with?  A question about the public linen washing of Newt Gingrich’s ex.

Gingrich is Friday morning’s hero not because he’s a spousal saint but because his well-aimed shot at the mainstream media shattered their glass ceiling.  In effect, Newt set We the People free from the lies of Obama—the lies of Obama being trotted out daily by ‘journalists’ as the “news”.

Sarah Palin told Sean Hannity she likes to call the media “dumbarses”.

“Hours before the airing of a controversial ABC News interview with Gingrich’s ex-wife, Palin appeared on Thursday’s radio edition of the Sean Hannity Show.  She noted that Marianne Gingrich’s claim that Newt wanted an “open marriage” will do anything but damage his 2012 hopes. (newsmax.com, Jan. 19, 2012).

“I call them dumbarses,” said Palin in the interview, referring to the media.  “They, thinking that by trotting out this old Gingrich divorce interview that’s old news—and it does feature a disgruntled ex, claiming that it would destroy his campaign—all this does, Sean, is incentivize conservatives and independents who are so sick of the politics of personal destruction, because it’s played so selectively by the media, that their target, in this case Newt, he’s now going to soar even more.  Because we know the game now, and we just won’t put up with it.  Good call, media.”

People fed up with the in-the-tank-with-Obama media call them what they are: liars, connivers, gossip mongers, merchants of smear, latte-sipping snobs looking down their noses at anyone not in the “news room” or in their self-drawn circle of sanctimony.  And God knows the truth about the media is damaging enough.

There wasn’t a candidate up there on the stage last night who didn’t feel gratified by Newt’s thorough trouncing of King, and by association the entire gutter-sniping mainstream media.

Yesterday’s Canada Free Press (CFP) headlines rang prophetically true: Count on ABC Boomerang on Newt’s ex-wife Interview.

The same could be said for the Washington Post.

Meanwhile Obama will need to be looking for a new “Liar’s Club” upon his return from playing Goofy at Disneyland.
