Here’s our second Hot Air video report from CPAC–An interview with Newt Gingrich during his visit to bloggers’ row. Topics covered: illegal and legal immigration, the Diversity Visa Lottery (he’d kill it), Visa Express and Saudi visas, the matricula consular card (he said he doesn’t know about it), the war, and defeating Hillary Clinton.

OUTRAGEOUS. Don Imus takes aim at the war veterans who made an incredible impact on this election, despite the ULM’s (unhinged liberal media’s) worst efforts to stifle their voices. Freepers are reporting on Imus’ rant here. Check back. I’ll try and have more after get off my column deadline at 10am-ish.

Although many of John Kerry’s defenders say the Swift Boat veterans are basically undercover Bush operatives, the Times reports that: * O’Neill voted for Al Gore in 2000; * he has described President Bush to several friends as an “empty […]
