Newt Gingrich is in trouble again, having gaffed while trying to brush off another gaffe made earlier this week on The Daily Show, succeeding only in digging his hole deeper…”He insisted that the Bush administration was right to read shoe bomber Richard Reid his Miranda rights because he was an American citizen…In a post on his Twitter page, Gingrich explained that when he made the Reid comment to The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart his reference was actually to Jose Padilla.
