Skippies of the Day: Newt Gingrich and Gretchen Carlson

I'm afraid the positivism of Zach can't fight back against all the other bile I come across in my daily dose of the Internet. Witness this exchange on FOX News (via Think Progress):
GINGRICH: I’m sad that it took a crisis of this scale, but I’m delighted that the president has recognized that we in fact all are subordinate to a larger God and that we need to seek guidance from that God.

CARLSON: But Mr. Speaker, did you find it at all disingenuous, because some people are analyzing that this morning as saying it was disingenuous from a president who does not go to Church on a regular basis?

GINGRICH: [...] If he’s prepared to publicly recognize God, maybe we should encourage him to do it more often.
As Nikki Haley discovered weeks ago, even if you are Christian, the GOP will not embrace you unless you are the right (ahem) sort of Christian. It doesn't matter if you believe in the Christian God, that Jesus died for our sins and that the acceptance of Jesus into your heart is the only path to heaven. No, you have to be obnoxious about your belief and profess it frequently in the public sphere.

Christians, I'm telling you right now: If you really want to win converts and turn this nation around morally, then you better find a way to keep these pin headed holier-than-thou pricks from speaking for you.
