18. I think he has a point

In the 1st debate, Willard utilized a tactic that Newt excels at: spewing bullshit. And it worked, for a bit, to shift the momentum of the race.

Gingrich practically invented the Gish Gallop. He can spread hundreds of lies in a limited amount of time all the while sounding authoritative and professorial. The key is, as George Costanza said, "It's not a lie if you believe it."

Gingrich is an unattractive, old, overweight, morally repugnant man, but he's a better liar and propagandist than prettty-boy Romney ever was.
