Newt is a political opportunist. What Newt is doing is he's trying to get out and be more flamboyant and more charismatic, if you will, and more controversial than Sarah Palin, who is his primary challenger, if he gets into Iowa and New Hampshire.
She will take all his oxygen and a lot of his support. If she doesn't run, he wants to move into that opening, Joe, in my judgment, in the Republican primaries, and how do you get more attention than Sarah Palin, who's very good at this, is to go two steps further. I mean, I think bringing the Nazis into the argument is always absurd in American politics, because there is no valid comparison there. And secondly, you know, you bring that in, and that's all we start talking about. So I think Newt went too far with that comment. but I know why he's doing it.
