A few days ago I saw Rick Tyler, the ex-Gingrich spokesman who joined a mass resignation from the former speaker’s campaign this summer, on MSNBC looking positively repentant.
Newt Gingrich has figured out the best way to stop doing things that make Republicans hate him -- go on vacation: Following a bumpy debut as an official candidate which included fumbling an answer about his support for House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan and a report that he carried as much as $500,000 in “revolving charge account” at luxury jeweler Tiffany & Co, the former House speaker has set off for a vacation with his wife Callista. ... They had long scheduled time off early in the campaign,” said Gingrich spokesman Rick Tyler.
