Newt Gingrich fires back at Meghan McCain [VIDEO]

Newt Gingrich doesn’t seem fazed by criticism from Meghan McCain that his campaign is just a “vanity project.”

Gingrich seemed surprised by the accusation from the Daily Beast columnist and daughter of Senator John McCain — especially since his poll numbers mirror her father’s in 2007.

Watch, and learn what Gingrich really thinks about Meghan McCain, Rick Perry’s flat tax and the Occupy Wall Street protests.
