Newt Gingrich Attacked With Glitter By Gay Activist

It’s no secret that Newt Gingrich doesn’t like gay people.

And one of those gays decided to do something about it during one of Newt’s campaign stops yesterday.

GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista were hit with glittery confetti by a protester Tuesday during the couple’s appearance at a book-signing.
The man approached the Gingriches during the signing at a downtown Minneapolis hotel, dumped a cracker box full of colorful confetti on the pair and said, “Feel the rainbow, Newt! Stop the hate! Stop anti-gay politics!”

Newt Gingrich Attacked With Glitter By Gay Activist

Two Associated Press reporters witnessed the event. The man was quickly pushed out of the room by an event organizer as the Gingriches brushed confetti out of their hair and laps.

Newt Gingrich smiled as he brushed confetti off the table, and said, “Nice to live in a free country.”

Although authorities couldn’t immediately confirm the man’s identity, he appeared to be Nick Espinosa, a prankster who has disrupted at least two other political events in Minnesota, including one in which he dumped a bagful of pennies in the lap of a Republican candidate for governor last year. In that prank, Espinosa — who has also used the name Robert Erickson — told reporters he was trying to highlight immigration issues.

Espinosa emailed reporters later Tuesday and attached pictures of the confetti attack. He said it was a protest against a proposal to amend Minnesota’s Constitution to ban gay marriage.

The gays aren’t the only thing Newt has to worry about as he continues to try to convince us that he is what America needs in the White House.

While he and other Republicans continue to play “every man,” like they’re suffering through this economy just as much as the rest of us, the Gingriches financial disclosure shows they’ve been balling out of control.

Newt and his wife reportedly owed American Express between $15,000 and $50,000 last year. They also racked up a $500,000 bill at Tiffany’s.

Must be nice.

    I am no fan of Gingrich (with a name liek Newt & a surname that sounds like he stole Christmas, he’s not very likeable, is he?) but I think if these homosexuals do not like being bashed they should quit launching physical attacks on others.
