Gingrich Gives Veterans Lesson on Social Construction; Palestinians Not Amused

The comment in question is that the Palestinians are an “invented” people, as if Gingrich knows anything about anything.

While Gingrich’s comment is noteworthy in its own right, I found it extra-noteworthy that he made the comment before a veterans forum.  It turns out that most of the other GOP candidates showed up and also said ignorant/ideological/lowest-common-denominator stuff:

Santorum said he opposed torture, but did not believe water boarding amounted to torture.

“I don’t think we torture our men and women in uniform, because our men and women in uniform are water-boarded,” he said. “To suggest the United States deliberately tortures our people … well, I just don’t believe we would do that.”

My take on political license at veterans forums here.
