Palestinians have expressed outrage at Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, who described them as an “invented people.”
During an interview with the Jewish Channel, a cable television channel in the United States, Gingrich departed from official American policy which supports the creation of a Palestinian state alongside Israel.

“There was no Palestine as a state," he said. "It was part of the Ottoman Empire. And I think that we’ve had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs, and who were historically part of the Arab community. And they had a chance to go many places, and for a variety of political reasons we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940s, and I think it’s tragic," Gingrich said.

Palestinian officials described the remarks as “despicable” and “racist.”

If this man gets elected - which I doubt - then the U.S. would take one hell of a giant step backward. The fact that so many people support him is disturbing.

Americans are fat, therefor the poor shouldn't eat. Makes sense.

Does he think that the overweight poor Americans can just live off their stored fat for a while?

They're not camels or hibernating bears. What the fuck.

I believe he's one of the anti-science Republicans. That misconception wouldn't surprise me. They can live on their stored fat while they go out and hunt their food, like real Americans.

To pick on the poor and set the poor against the struggling middle and working clases for electoral advantage when there are so many more obvious targets and ways to generate funding - the undertaxed super-rich, out-sourcing corporations, for example - it's pure evil. I really can't think of any other way to describe it. What an asshole.

Romney doing best at the first commercial break. I'm kind of disappointed in Perry and Bachmann for their weak/false attacks on him.

really? as someone who wouldn't vote for any of these people, i feel like Romney is looking really rattled.

Perry is the Walking Dead.

Physically, yes, it's easy to tell when he gets rattled and annoyed. The substance of his comebacks though was very good, I thought.

If the choice was "vote Democrat," "vote Republican," or "watch Breaking Bad all day," I would go with watching Breaking Bad.
