Sowell: The Republican establishment is smearing Gingrich (I respect Sowell, he’s one of my favorites. I think Gingrich has blurred the truth a ton of times, and now acts all hurt when he gets hit with the same tactic. This doesn’t make that intentional blurring of the truth right. It’s wrong. Negative campaigning ≠ blurring, and vice versa. Negative campaigning is more useful to voters than puff pieces because we just get more information that way. There is “good” negative campaigning and “bad.” Gingrich has engaged in and has been the victim of both.)
