BREAKING NEWS: Newt Gingrich admits error.

Over at Cathie from Canada, we have a link to a piece explaining how, after a bit of chiding from Canada, right-wing airhead Newt Gingrich has apologized for claiming that the terrorists involved in the 9/11 attacks entered the U.S. via this country.

I guess it's nice to correct the record but, come on, does it really represent progress to point out that Newt Gingrich was wrong about something and that he's admitted it? It's sort of like getting someone to admit that, yeah, I guess Fox News does have kind of a rightward ideological tilt. Or that George W is a bit, you know, stupid.

For someone who was allegedly such an intellectual visionary (at least in his own mind), Gingrich could say the dumbest things at times.
