Gingrich Campaign Defects

Much of Newt Gingrinch's senior campaign staff abruptly resigned yesterday.  The rats leaving the sinking SS Newty-Newt include spokesman Rick Tyler, campaign manager Bob Johnson, senior strategists and aids in South Carolina, Iowa, and New Hampshire.  Gingrich couldn't be reached for comment because he and Calista were off on a cruise to the Greek Islands.  Seriously.  It may seem strange for a presidential candidate to abruptly go on a luxury vacation in the midst of a campaign, but those Aegean sunsets set off Tiffany's diamonds so beautifully.
