Gingrich's Vindictiveness Revealed in Debate

Former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich's vindictiveness comes out with this answer on SOPA.

"You're asking a conservative about the economic interests of Hollywood," were the first words out of the speaker's mouth.

Leave aside for the moment, the merits (or lack thereof) of his later argument or any argument for this anti-piracy bill. The fact that he would consider the ideological standing of those who are raising the appeal as a reason to support (or oppose) legislation should frighten everybody and the pettiness is unbecoming. Presidents shouldn't admit to having enemies lists that determine how they will treat their fellow Americans.
