Pick Newt and You'll Likely Get More of This

As I've said before, Newt's quite good at "off the cuff" answers and turning negatives into positives.  Alas, it's far more impressive when an "off the cuff" answer that's used to throttle the questioner is, in fact, true.  While I hate to post a CNN video, facts are facts.

For the video impaired, from Politico:

After nearly a week on the defensive, CNN's John King reports tonight that Newt Gingrich'sclaim about offering witnesses to ABC News in his defense — to rebut the network's interview with his second wife, Marianne Gingrich — was not true.
"Tonight, after persistent questioning by our staff, the Gingrich campaign concedes now Speaker Gingrich was wrong — both in his debate answer, and in our interview yesterday," King said on tonight's edition of John King USA. "Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond says the only people the Gingrich campaign offered to ABC were his two daughters from his first marriage." 
An important victory for John King in his ongoing effort to justify last Thursday's confrontation.
I applaud anyone who beats the press at their own game, but I detest it when it's done with a lie. Sorry, this isn't the stuff that'll beat Obama; it's the stuff that'll make laughing stock out of Newt and anyone who supports him.
