Newt Gingrich, go away and stop bothering us.

Gingrich came out on Fox News this morning to slam Harvard University for accepting Saudi money.

On the one hand, Harvard accepts money from Saudis. Saudi Arabia, by the way, executes homosexuals. Saudi Arabia represses women. Saudi Arabia does not allow Christians or Jews to practice their religion, but Saudi money is fine.

Fine except for one minor detail. The largest block of ownership outside the Murdoch family is owned by Saudi oil tycoon Prince Alwaleed bin Talal. Alwaleed has boasted in the past about forcing Fox News to change its content. Gingrich is a regular on Fox where he can spout hypocritical bullshit like this in total safety.

Standard operating procedure for Gingrich.
