We haven’t heard about Newt Gingrich since he was pooping all over the GOP’s platform and also defending his $500,000 no-interest credit line at Tiffany’s, so he can always get some new whore trinkets for whatever new mistress he’s bonking in some broom closet. So how’s that campaign going? Oh, you forgot Newt Gingrich was running for president? Hahaha so did everybody, including Newt’s campaign manager and a half-dozen senior campaign staffers. They’re done! It’s time to hook up with somebody who has a chance in hell of getting the GOP nomination or at least a second spot on the ticket. And Newt Gingrich is never going to be the nominee for president or vice president of anything beyond Newt Gingrich Enterprises, LLC.
Newt Gingrich’s campaign manager and a half-dozen senior advisers resigned on Thursday, two aides said, dealing a significant setback to his bid to seek the Republican presidential nomination and severely complicating his plan to make a political comeback.
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.
What direction? Unless you mean “straight down the tubes,” there has never been any direction to this campaign. It has never been about anything beyond the insane delusions of Newt Gingrich, one of the worst people in the world. [NYT]
