MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista were hit with glittery confetti by a protester Tuesday during the couple's appearance at a book-signing.
The man approached the Gingriches during the signing at a downtown Minneapolis hotel, dumped a cracker box full of colorful confetti on the pair and said, "Feel the rainbow, Newt! Stop the hate! Stop anti-gay politics!"
Okay, I've gotta say this: I think this is a dumb way to protest anti-gay politicians. It's certainly not a tactic that's going to win over any conservative hearts and minds. It'll get you a go-round in the press, but those column inches aren't going to advance the cause.
That said, "Feel the rainbow, Newt!" is a fucking hilarious sentence, and that Gingrich supporter at the end of the video is so terrifying and creepy that he feels made up. And it's yet another addition to the car-wreckish glory that is Newt Blingrich's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Week. So maybe this counts as a win, after all?
