And, appropriately, this clip features an in-flight catastrophe to mirror the one Newt suffered yesterday. If shooting himself in the foot with his own mouth wasn't enough upon launching his campaign a few weeks ago, Newt's entire senior campaign staff staged a mass simultaneous exodus yesterday while Gingrich and his wife took time out from his fledgling presidential run to tour the Greek Isles by ship.
You can't make this stuff up, can you?
Between differences of opinion on a technological versus old-fashioned grass-roots campaign, and Newt taking a hike to Greece, the staff felt they weren't on the same page, or maybe, I guess, even in the same book as the former House Speaker.
It's probably tempting for Newt to remember John McCain carrying his own bags through the airport in New Hampshire. But that campaign didn't actually end well.
For those, like me, who have seen evidence that Newt doesn't play well with others, losing his entire first tier staff pretty much says it all.
What's left- Callista becomes his chauffeur, a la Jody Powell for Jimmuh?
