The GOP electorate is being set up by the Washington establishment. Let there be no doubt about it.
Behold, for your reading displeasure, Glenn Beck’s recent interview of Newt Gingrich.
Praise of Theodore Roosevelt, ethanol subsidies, support for an individual mandate, global warming credulity, well here is just one passage.

On global warming, with sitting down on the couch with Nancy Pelosi, and I would agree with you that was the dumbest moment ‑‑ you know, it would have been the dumbest moment of my life. And I agree with that. But when you look at, it’s not a moment of your life. In speech after speech, in your book Contract with the Earth, even with John Kerry in a debate, you said this.
GINGRICH: Evidence is sufficient, but we should move towards the most effective possible steps to reduce carbon looting of the atmosphere.
VOICE: And do it urgently?
GINGRICH: And do it urgently, yes.
Oh, good grief.
