Why deny the obvious about Newt Gingrich?

To deny that Newt Gingrich's comments on food stamps weren't implicitly racist is breathtakingly naive ("Newt the demagogue," Jan. 20). Of course that's what Mr. Gingrich was up to in South Carolina, tossing red meat to the Republican voters.

Right on to The Sun for pointing out the obvious.
