Newt Gingrich gets a glitter shower.
Newt Gingrich is having a seriously crappy week.

First he goes off the Republican rails on Sunday by insisting that privatizing Medicare is a really bad idea.

Next he has to bat down a scandal about running a $500,000 tab at Tiffany and Co.

And then he shows up today in Minneapolis, where a video camera rolls as he gets punk'd with a glitter shower at a book signing.

Suffice to say this did not make local left-wing prankster Robert Erickson a popular man with the Bible-believing members of the Minnesota Family Council, who were hosting the event, and one godly bouncer unceremoniously shoved Erickson from the room.

"Feel the Rainbow!" Erickson shouted to protest the proposed constitutional ban on gay marriage backed by the MFC. "Stop the hate!"

"Since Newt is hanging with the Family Council, I figured he needed a shiny dose of Minnesota Nice to counteract the hate embraced by those who are pushing this divisive bill," Erickson told The Daily Kos. "Of course, he might have to explain all the glitter to his third wife, Callista."


Erickson is the man also responsible for deluging former GOP gubernatorial candidate Tom Emmer with pennies last year.

Robert Erickson: What will Senator Klobuchar say when I throw a bag of pennies into her head? Of course Klobuchar is chicken-shit and not doing town halls! I hope Robert Erickson finds it funny then!

I seriously hate crap like this.   Liberals win arguments with a combination of smarts, facts, and wit not with stupid juvenile stunts.    It would have been much funnier to ask Newt if gay marriage was forcing him to cheat on his wife over and over again.   Newt is one of the worst people in the world however he still deserves the respect of civil discourse.  The man is a public figure and with what happened to Gabby Giffords I'd be scared seeing some nut reaching into his bag pulling out something and shouting.   You don't need a prop to make Newt look stupid.  Just watch the video of Michael Moore visiting Cobb County Georgia at the height of Newt's power and exposing what frauds Newt and his voters are.   


The creepy guy who took him to the elevator and gave him the lecture is closeted gay-seriously.
