Kirsten Powers articulated that view in her post at The Daily Beast, The Right Subjects Wendy Davis to...

Newt Gingrich (h/t @RobGeorge):

I think Republican consultants are mostly very stupid. I think they have no education. I think they have no sense of history. … If I throw away African Americans, and then I throw away Latinos, and then I throw away suburban women, and then I throw away people under...
