Help Me Evaluate Prof. Gingrich's Threats

Changing the subject . . .
Lesson learned this week: If you're ever a Republican vice president, and you accidentally shoot someone in a quail hunting accident, call a press conference before you call 9-1-1, or you'll be accused of a cover-up. And don't be surprised if a lot of folks (adults, but not grown-ups) hope the victim will die, just to do you political harm.
