"Fire all the janitors and make poor kids clean their schools? Zap Korea with an airborne superlaser that's never worked during testing? Ignore global warming and plan to re-engineer the entire planet with untested technology instead? People like Maureen Dowd have been having fun with Newt Gingrich's wackier ideas lately. But despite their snarky comments -- and the fact that some of Gingrich's ideas truly are bizarre -- they're missing something important and making a fundamental mistake." (12/13/11)
