Maureen Dowd is a treat. First she says, "How dare Newt Gingrich suggest that Kenyan anticolonialism is a disreputable ideology." Then she says, "How dare Newt Gingrich suggest that Obama subscribes to such a loathsome doctrine."
"I often say that when you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely, in your thoughts, advanced to the stage of science, whatever the matter may be." ~ Lord Kelvin
