Friday’s p-Op quiz: ‘Mitt v. Newt’ edition


This was the week that saw constant chatter about Herman Cain replaced by constant, no incessant, chatter about Newt Gingrich. The man who has a very high opinion of himself now has poll numbers to justify his sterling view of himself. Other than President Obama’s bofo speech in Texas, er Kansas, wherever, there wasn’t much else anyone discussed. Oh, wait, there was lots of talk about the Trump-Newsmax-Ion debate. Gingrich will be there, which will provide him yet another opportunity to tell America how great he is. That blessed day isn’t until Dec. 27, but this week’s p-Op quiz is ready right now. Unless you’re like “[r]eally poor children, in really poor neighborhoods [who] have no habit of working and have nobody around them who works,” you’ll do just fine.
