A reader below mentions this editorial in today’s WSJ but I’d already read it over my morning coffee and dismissed Mr. Gingrich from any further serious consideration. I’ll forgive a stupid person from error because, heck, he’s stupid. But Gingrich is not, so when barnstorms Iowa, claiming that only pointy-headed-intellectuals oppose ethanol, you know that he’s pandering to the farm vote. Screw him, screw the farmers, who should be satisfied with the record price they’re already getting for their grain. Instead, they just got the EPA to increase ethanol content fromn 10 to 15%. How can 1% of the population stick it to the rest of us?
