Remember that puzzling dream you had about a guy who ran for the GOP nomination having resigned under a cloud of scandal in the 1990s? Remember how that candidate from your dream was the opposite of a dream candidate – anti-gay, pro-racist dog whistles, anti-welfare, and pro-moon colony? And remember how the dream seemed to go on forever?
That wasn’t a dream (though at times, it did feel like every American comedian’s dream come true). That was the Newt Gingrich campaign, and it actually happened.
But yesterday, it ended. Gingrich announced that he was dropping out. To commemorate the occasion, our own Katie made this little tribute video.
So long, Newt. You’ll be missed by comedians, but not by me.
