That kind of argument belongs to Occupy Wall Streeters -- not a self-proclaimed conservative seeking to run the world's preeminent (capitalist!) economy. What's more, what many find unpleasant about Gingrich's relationship with Freddie Mac isn't just its outcome; it's the fact that it existed in the first place as a prime illustration of the "crony capitalism"/Beltway revolving door mentality (brilliantly excoriated by Sarah Palin)
that Americans rightly abhor whether it's exhibited on the left or the right.
