    Nothing on CNN today re: what Newt Gingrich said about the American workforce? For those who missed it the man accused American workers of opting to sit on their collective hands and collect unemployment rather than seek productive employment. That's the bulk of the middle class he's indicting for simple laziness! Even in these disconnected times that's an utter outrage; how can he be so completely out of touch with on-the-ground reality?!
