Did you hear that the preeminent housing historian and disgraced former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich ended his campaign today and endorsed the man he repeatedly called a liar during the "Survivor - GOP presidential Primary" debates, Willard "Mittens" Romney? Yeah, I thought he left weeks ago too. Talk about a long goodbye.
I was going to write something about Newt's exit, but Shep Smith at FAUX News Broadcasting said it best in a few short words that are the Quote of the Day:
Shep Smith, with a deadpan expression, told Fox viewers:
"...Mitt Romney has released a statement on the departure of Newt Gingrich from the campaign. It reads in part, 'Ann and I are proud to call Newt and Calista friends. We look forward to working with them in the months and years ahead.' That from Mitt Romney.
"Politics is weird. And creepy. And now I know lacks even the loosest attachment to anything like reality."
Comedy gold. Video below the fold.
Bonus video. The Obama campaign released a new ad today, "Newt Gingrich: Frankly, not Mitt Romney's biggest supporter," a compilation of some of Newt's comments about Romney. There's a lot more where this came from.
