Au Contraire

by Jonah Goldberg

Rich, I say the moment of which you speak came ten days earlier with this moment at St. Anselm’s College:

“I think I will probably teach a course when I’m president,” Gingrich told students and supporters after a campaign speech on entitlement reform at Saint Anselm College’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics.

“I will probably try to do something that outlines for the whole country what we’re going to try to accomplish,” he said. “It will be free.”

It’s not the online course part that’s the really kicker. It’s the addendum, “It will be free.” It sounds like he’s making a concession there. After all, an online course from the Commander-in-Chief is certainly worth $29.95.

And just for the record, I did write this a few days ago.
