OH HO HO HO HO OHHHHHHH… OHHH… CAUGHT… SUCKA… whatever. Newt Gingrich mistakenly said on The Daily Show last night that shoebomber Richard Reid was an American citizen (he was British — even more American than an American, chronologically?), and that’s why George W. Bush personally read him his Miranda rights.
But thankfully Newt Gingrich has corrected himself, on Twitter, a full day later, and after much googling: he was thinking of the baseball player, Padilla. Or another Padilla. But aren’t all the Padillas Mexican citizens, a.k.a. “tortureables?”
