News Roundup for 5/18/11

Newt Gingrich, shown lying

-Headline of the day-
"Newt Gingrich: 'Any Ad Which Quotes What I Said On Sunday Is A Falsehood.'"

Newt's super-mad that people are taking his words and getting all crazy and pretending he said them. On Fox's Sunday Talk with People Whose Heads Look Like Onions, Newt told the host that he didn't say those things he said about Paul Ryan and Medicare and social engineering. That's flat-out untrue. And anyone who writes it down or repeats it or plays the tape is just a horrible, horrible liar who should be ashamed of themselves.

"I want to make sure every House Republican is protected from some kind of dishonest Democratic ad," he said. "So let me say on the record, any ad which quotes what I said on Sunday is a falsehood."

So, if you quote verbatim what Newt clearly and inarguably said, you're telling a lie. Take a second and let the logical conclusion to that argument sink in...

Got it? You're lying, because you're quoting Gingrich word for word. Therefore, Gingrich's words are lies. I mean, if A is to B as B is to C, then A equals C, right? A) Newt speaks, B) you repeat it, C) lies are told. So A) Newt speaks = C) lies are told. Simple logic.

Thanks for clearing that up for us, Newton. (ThinkProgress, with video)
