Newt Has Been Newtered

Gingrich’s Senior Campaign Aides Resign

Newt Gingrich’s campaign manager and a half-dozen senior advisers have taken their ball and have gone home.

To say it's a 'minor setback' is akin to waiting for the fish to bite in the Dead Sea.

The campaign manager, Rob Johnson, along with advisers in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, joined together to step down after a period of deep internal disagreements about the direction of the campaign. In other words, he was a pain in the ass who wouldn't listen to reason.

Mr. Gingrich, the former House speaker who has been fighting to regain his political footing after a rough campaign announcement last month, had been absent from the campaign trail for about two weeks on what aides had described as a pre-planned vacation. He made his first return to the campaign trail on Wednesday in New Hampshire, one day before the resignations were announced.

Or, perhaps he just wasn't getting the kind of money Mitt was, and the attention Palin is - and she's not even running.

Someone feel free to Photoshop "Newt 2012" on the picture. Or just imagine it.

PS - Newt had a vasectomy. He's been neutered.
