Truthiness Spoken Here

This morning’s New York Times carried the following from Newton Leroy Gingrich:


“I think you have to at some point be honest with what’s happening in the real world, as opposed to what you’d like to have happened,” Mr. Gingrich said at a Republican Party event in North Carolina on Wednesday morning.   New York Times  National Edition  26 April 2012   A14


Let’s “over-read” — that is, take literally — Speaker Gingrich’s words.  The erstwhile GOP contender reluctantly concluded that eventually rhetorical worlds must yield to factual reality.  Then — and only then, Speaker Gingrich? — presidential aspirants must be honest.

It takes a big man to admit that he has been less than honest until now.  Newt Gingrich is a big man.
