Gingrich: I took that vacation to Greece because I needed to see the fiscal crisis up close
This is small potatoes in the primary, really. I have no reason to dwell on Gingrich's June vacation.
But I can't not have a little fun with it, to poke at the utter convenience of coming up with that story now.
I mean, where have we heard an ex post facto politically convenient reason for a previous politically uncomfortable decision before? Oh, wait, I remember now: John Edwards saying he went to work at a hedge fund to "to learn about the relationship between making a fistful of dollars and poverty".
