George Will: ‘Wisdom Is One Thing Newt Gingrich Doesn’t Have’

(By James Crugnale, Mediaite) - Conservative columnist George Will appeared on 'The Laura Ingraham Show' Friday to express his qualms about GOP frontrunner Newt Gingrich. “Mr. Gingrich said it’s not enough that he is the smartest guy in the room, he also has to be wise,” explained Will. “Now you can associate many things with Mr. Gingrich, but wisdom isn’t one of them. Surely the Republican nominating electorate should understand the fact that people have patterns. Don’t expect the patterns to go away. Expect the patterns to manifest themselves again. If Newt Gingrich has any pattern at all — and he does — it is a pattern of getting himself into trouble because he thinks he is the smartest guy in the room.”
