Two attempts to explain the resurrection of Newt Gingrich


Yes, Newt appeared  dead at least twice. 

If Mitt’s guys were playing it smart,

They would have made certain of that

By driving a stake through his heart.


But Newt might have said if they had,

Proceed, Mitt. You’ll see I won’t mind it.

You’re free to drive stakes through my heart,

Except that you’ll first have to find it.
