The Rebuke in Dubuque: Gingrich’s Rocky Campaign Start Somehow Gets Even Rockier

At this pace I’m wondering if that by the end of the week Newt won’t be down in Palm Beach nursing Piña Coladas with Trump and Huckabee.

Newt Gingrich was in Iowa today and is paying the price for his comments on Meet the Press on Sunday. Here’s a transcript from The Blaze of Newt’s encounter with one unhappy customer:

Guy: Speaker Gingrich, what you just did to Paul Ryan is unforgivable.

Gingrich: I didn’t do anything to Paul Ryan!

Guy: Yes, you did. You undercut him and his allies in the house.

Gingrich: No, I…

Guy: You’re an embarrassment to our party.

Gingrich: I’m sorry you feel that way.

Guy: Why don’t you get out before you make a bigger fool of yourself.

The above conversation takes place starting at about 1:30 mark. Also watch for the “hastily thrown together” CYA video the Gingrich camp made after his Meet the Press appearance. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a campaign produce its own hostage tape:

(If the video isn’t working try here)

Newt’s got nowhere to go but up from here, right? Right?

Update: Here’s the short version of Charles Krauthammer’s take on Gingrich: Stick a fork in him, he’s done.
