Gingra Din

Thanks to Newt Gingrich’s spokesman Rick Tyler and his soaring, epic defense of the besieged candidate, we have a sequel of sorts to Rudyard Kipling’s famous poem, Gunga Din. I’m calling the new version Gingra Din.

First, just to warm up, a bit of Kipling’s Gunga Din:

You Lazarushian-leather Gunga Din!
Though I’ve belted you and flayed you,
By the livin’ Gawd that made you,
You’re a better man than I am, Gunga Din!

And now a snip from Tyler’s soon to be classic Gingra Din:

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…

Not bad, eh?

Who’d have thought that the debate over whether or not Newt’s carrying the water for individual mandates while taking hostile fire from both sides could be so artful?
