Gingrich gets glittered

(CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista Gingrich had glitter dumped on them at a book signing in Minneapolis, Minnesota Tuesday. The video was posted on what appears to be a liberal blog that among other issues is pro-gay rights.

    OMG why couldn't this had ever happened to Sarah Palin?? Remember when the gays used to shove pies in Anita Bryant's face? I had hoped one day somebody would do that to her but then Newt is a good start.

    When Newt eventually comes out of the closet he will blame it on some gay guy for dumping fairy dust on him and turning him gay.

    The best thing to happen to the GOP is "Glitter Gingrich"!

    Oh yeah! I forgot Palin, Trump, the Birther / Deather conspiracies and those Tea baggers too.

    With that line up the GOP has nothing to worry about in 2012...

    This is awesome! Not as good as the old stanby tar and feathering, but pretty nice. I agree with the comment above, get Palin next.

    Gingrich no Nuts...
    Daniels no respect for woman health, would not be re-elected Gov.
    Pallin enough said...
    Huntsman never heard of this guy
    Romney same healthcare as Obama
    Bachmann just make things up, issues with the facts
    Ron Paul has let Rick Perry rob Texas...
    Santorum has no chance....

    If I were a Republican I would be very worried....

    Well Huckabee or one of the other contenders said that throwing trash at a protestor was free speech. So I guess this is too. Unless you're one of those IOKIYAR people.

    I'm liberal and gay and find this incredibly inappropriate. It's akin to throwing a glass of water in someone’s face. Not an effective way to get things done/get your point across.

  13. Paul Ryans Plan to Kill Medicare as We Know It is a Radical Social Engineering says Newt Gingrich. Newt now supports HCR INDIVIDUAL MANDATES like he has ALWAYS done!!!

    Newt can incorporate some of those Glitter & Blings into Callista bracelet & least that stuff is cheap compared to running a charge card that's worth almost $500,000 dollars at Tiffany's!!!

    Thats awesome. I guess spewing out hate and intolerance all the time does have its down side?
