Trouble in Gingrich World! The Atlantic’s David Graham points to the bevy of conservative pundits firing at Newt Gingrich today for his accusation that Mitt Romney “bankrupt[ed] companies” as a private-equity investor.

The bigger question: what has become of the political discourse when high-ranking members of the GOP establishment are calling each other socialists?
