Forgive Me, Voters, for I Am Newt
Kathryn Jean Lopez, National Review Online
I don’t know the heart of Newt Gingrich. Still, I probably know him as well as many of those who have commented on his reappearance as a potential candidate. Since we last saw Gingrich as an elected official, he has converted to Catholicism. And yes, he has made an excellent documentary about Pope John Paul II and the fall of Communism. Needless to say, none of these things constitutes a get-out-of-moral-jail-free card and, of course, people have been known to do things for politically advantageous reasons.
I am happy that Newt has found new meaning in his faith.
But I’ve said it before, he’s brilliant on policy. But I can’t support him for President.
