Greater threat

Newt Gingrich is - or wants to appear - insane:

"The [Obama] secular-socialist machine represents as great a threat to America as Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union once did."
Gene Lyons says:
A sane political movement would keep a prating coxcomb like Gingrich off television. Whether Newt actually believes this rubbish, or is merely following the Tea Party fife and drum corps around the bend, strikes me as of little interest. Politically, it's pointless to reason with crazy people -- make-believe or real.
Thirty percent of Americans apparently agree. With Gingrich!

Does that doom democracy?
