Textbook Definition of Politically Tone Deaf

Good grief, Gingrich, just go away:
... While he was away on a cruise to Rhodes, Mykonos and other Greek islands, Mr. Gingrich said that he wrote two policy speeches.

“I don’t know how other people work,” [ED.: While you're off galavanting around the Greek Isles. .. errrr ... I mean ... "working", there are a LOT of people who aren't working at all. And the vast majority of the rest don't have the luxury of "working" the way you define it. So, no, the one thing you said that is quite accurate is that you "don't know how other people work."] Mr. Gingrich said in an interview on Wednesday. “To have a major breakthrough in policy [ED.: Yay, Newt, what would we do with out your superior intellect and oversized ego when it comes to top-down thinking about how to achieve "major breakthroughs in policy" implemented by our betters in Washington to make our lives oh so much more livable?], you have to be able to stop and think.” [ED.: Yes, because you're just so overwhelmed with responsibilities right now. And from the way things are going, thinking on your feet isn't your strong suit. But the remedy for that isn't for you to "stop and think". The remedy is for you to just stop.]

How about the Limousine Liberals? Would they have a different malady?
