Newt Gingrich’s sugar daddy wants to nuke Iran

Thank you, Supreme Court, for giving totally not unhinged billionaires like Sheldon Adelson an even bigger role in American politics than they had before Citizen’s United. If you hadn’t done that, we might be denied such wise counsel as this:

The biggest donor to Republican Party political groups said Tuesday that the United States should drop a nuclear bomb on Iran to spur the country to end its own nuclear program.

Sheldon Anderson, the billionaire casino mogul, said on a panel at Yeshiva University in New York City that an initial blast, targeted to hit only desert area, would kill “maybe a couple of rattlesnakes, and scorpions, or whatever,” according to video posted on the foreign policy news website Mondoweiss.

“Then you say, ‘See! The next one is in the middle of Tehran. So, we mean business. You want to be wiped out? Go ahead and take a tough position and continue with your nuclear development.”

Obviously this is one obscenely rich person whose opinions are worth hearing!
