playing politics like a Republican

In response to Harry Reid's claim that an anonymous Bain insider said Mitt Romney paid no income taxes for 10 years, Matt Yglesias tweeted:

What was Matt talking about, you might ask? Chris Bodenner sitting in for Andrew offers a perfect example:
"We have no proof today, but I would say to you under Obama’s ideology it is absolutely true that he would be comfortable sending a lot of people checks for doing nothing. I believe that totally," - Newt Gingrich, after repeatedly pressed by Anderson Cooper to admit that the claims made in Romney's welfare ad are totally unsubstantiated. The whole interview is a remarkable bit of propaganda countered by a remarkable bit of journalism.
