Forsyth County Values
Crooks and Liars has put up a video showing contemporary evening news footage of Newt Gingrich's Republican takeover of the House and Senate in 1994. Notice how they relished the coming partisan witchhunts that will be conducted by Gingrich's henchmen and how the Democrats should be put on notice. Nothing about how such a campaign will "hurt" the Republicans or cause a backlash. Also notice, unlike how Nancy Pelosi is constantly characterized as representing "San Fransisco values", how Gingrich seems to be representative of "normal Americans" instead of representing a county in Georgia that is known for its violent Klan rallies.
