Newt Gingrich Demands that President Obama "Repudiate the Concept" of the 1%

Apparently, the entire premise of 1% of the nation's population controlling 18% percent of the wealth has become, according to Newt Gingrich, a "concept".

Really? It's just theoretical now?

Well, of course it is. Because we'd have no way of being able to actually prove that a tiny handful of very wealthy control 18% of the entire nation's money. I mean, it's not like anyone keeps records on who owns what and how much they make or anything, right? So, it's really all just supposition and guesswork, isn't it?

So any assertion that 99% of the population of the United States no longer has a voice in the country's monetary course (and, thereby, it's political course) is really just a "concept". Like flying cars. And Santa Claus. And unicorns.

It's almost refreshing that some things never change. The sun rises in the East and sets in the West, the swallows will return to Capistrano, and Newt Gingrich will be a big, gigantic asshat. Always.

  1. Newt Gingrich is a liar.

    Just another concept?

    Or verifiable truth?

  2. (Sorry this took so long to moderate. Not sure why Blogger isn't telling me I have comments anymore. Must check settings.)

    No, no... I think, given what we've seen in the past several weeks of primaries, your assertion is pretty well proven. Liar. Asshat. Incontrovertible evidence.
