Land of plenty, that is. So many opportunities to turn to my dog on the couch and say, “Wait. What?”

Take CNN anchorman John King’s exchange last week with Newt Gingrich. King kinda, sorta asked the candidate to respond to an accusation from his second wife.

During the broadcast, the two right-wing enthusiasts played an audio recording of what they claim was a discussion between Lindell and a banking official.
