“I’ll tell you a true story,” the former House Speaker began. “I’m here in 1984 and I’m part of a truth squad. It’s at the convention. … And we’re down at Union Square and CBS is interviewing me and this guy tosses me this perfect softball: ‘The Republicans are going to Dallas, which has the largest Baptist church in the country. Democrats are going to San Francisco, which has the largest gay movement in the country. Does this say something about the two parties?’”

“Literally, at that moment a 6-foot-2 transvestite walks up and hands me an invitation to an exorcism of Jerry Falwell,” Gingrich recalled. “I just cite that as some vague — I really mean the Sierra Club, which has gone off the deep end as a general rule. Basically very, very left-wing values.”
