Newt even started charging supporters $50 a pop for a photo with him.
All of this would be amusing if Newt the Candidate wasn’t costing the American taxpayer $38,000 a day for Secret Service protection.
Well, they couldn’t protect him from that Magellanic penguin, and they can’t protect him from the American voter. They may have been born at night, but it wasn’t last night. And when Newt disappears this time, it’ll be for good. And good riddance.
