Newt's troops scoot

Of course, by now you know Newt's campaign imploded yesterday with a mass exodus of his senior staff. I'm not quite feeling the prevailing schadenfreude since I never really took Newt's candidacy all that seriously in the first place but I think Mad Kane had the best response:
Limerick Ode To Newt Gingrich
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Here’s some news that inspires a laugh:
Newt Gingrich has lost his main staff.
They quit him en masse.
(Do they think him an ass?)
Newt’s so peeved, he may shoot a giraffe.

UPDATE: Was my “giraffe” reference too obscure? For those who don’t know what it refers to, just follow the link in the last line of my limerick.
Rumor has it, Newt's troops left because of Calista. Or maybe they figured out associating with a laughingstock wasn't good for career advancement. Nevertheless, Newt announced he intends to start afresh and stay in the race. I expect he will as long he can the media to chase him. Hell, it's a good way to promote his other projects.

And by the way, if you're not reading Mad Kane regularly, well, you're missing out.
