This is Moon Man while awaiting his turn at an AIPAC video conference. He falls asleep several times then when his turn comes up, he blurts, “I understand you have a panel. I look forward to any questions.” A strained silence of about 12 seconds ensues while the AIPAC introducer has to rush back onstage to inform Gingrich that there is no panel.
But just like an entertainer that's always "on", the half-asleep Gingrich nonetheless musters typical pro-Israel, right wing boilerplate: “Let me just say – I say this pretty briefly, I think. We need a fundamental reassessment of our entire understanding of the threat of radical Islam.”
In an endless Republican primary filled to the gills with creepiness, this has to be the singularly creepiest moment. Maybe Newt shouldn't be up all night staring at the moon and wondering where he'll put his moon base.
