Way to dig it deeper, Team Newt!
From HuffPo (sorry, I saw it at Gawker first but it's HuffPo's story):
When asked by The Huffington Post about media coverage this past week, Gingrich press secretary Rick Tyler fired off a response blasting the political and media elite."The literati sent out their minions to do their bidding,” Tyler wrote. “Washington cannot tolerate threats from outsiders who might disrupt their comfortable world. The firefight started when the cowardly sensed weakness. They fired timidly at first, then the sheep not wanting to be dropped from the establishment’s cocktail party invite list unloaded their entire clip, firing without taking aim their distortions and falsehoods. Now they are left exposed by their bylines and handles. But surely they had killed him off. This is the way it always worked. A lesser person could not have survived the first few minutes of the onslaught. But out of the billowing smoke and dust of tweets and trivia emerged Gingrich, once again ready to lead those who won’t be intimated by the political elite and are ready to take on the challenges America faces.”
What is there to say? As a card-carrying member of the Literati, I'm wondering if we should have Tyler arrested for gross violations of language.
Meanwhile, here is Newt getting glittered. (Note, I do not approve of glittering opponents. Seriously, I mean that. It's not funny. At all. Do not laugh at this video.)
