Is Gingrich that dumb?

 

From Politico, Newt Gingrich said this at a church in San Antonio, Texas:

"I have two grandchildren — Maggie is 11, Robert is 9," Gingrich said at Cornerstone Church here. "I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they're my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists and with no understanding of what it once meant to be an American."

His version of hell is a country dominated by secular atheist radical islamists?

Is he that dumb? This is one of the luminaries of the Republican party? oy vey!

Aeropelican FSX video

 

Jeroen Doorman, one of the most talented FSX video makers I know has come up with a new one yesterday.

This one showcases ORBX’s Aeropelican (YPEC), a beautiful area on the East coast of Australia, and a place I like to fly around often in Flight Simulator FSX.

Aeropelican (YPEC) (watch in YouTube in HD)

Well done Jeroen! And kudos to ORBx for producing such a great scenery.
