‘newt gingrich’s pinocchio-laden debut’

Greg Sargent (Washington Post): Newt Gingrich can’t stop spewing falsehoods, but he’s Very Serious: My pick for read of the morning is Post fact checker Glenn Kessler’s funny and absolutely brutal debunking of, well, pretty much everything Newt said in launching his bid for president. The man lies non-stop, but hey, he’s Serious and has Big Ideas, so who cares?

The Fact Checker (Washington Post): Newton Leroy “Newt” Gingrich is back! The former House speaker threw his hat in the presidential ring Wednesday with an appearance on Fox’s “Sean Hannity Show.”

…There were so many gems in Gingrich’s appearance that we will pick out the choice comments that cry out for fact-checking. We reached out to two of his spokesmen with questions and requests for documentation, but did not get a response….

    Thanks for the article Chipsticks. This is a perfect segue for the TOD family. Jon Stewart was on fire last night! OMG the way and manner he took on Newt Gingrich was phenonmenal. For two nights in a row I have enjoyed Stewart as I haven’t for quite a while. I’m gonna post the link, But Chipsticks I really think you should put up the video because it was Stewart at his best. All the morning news shows hosts were cracking up at the ripping of Newt by StewBeef( That’s the nickname Tracy Morgan from 30 rock bestowed upon him)
