Angry Iowan confronts Newt
This is almost painful to watch…
Via GOP12, it went like this:
IOWAN: What you just did to Paul Ryan is unforgivable.
GINGRICH: I didn’t do anything to Paul Ryan.
IOWAN: Yes, you did. You undercut him…. you’re an embarrassment to our party.
GINGRICH: I’m sorry you feel that way.
IOWAN: Why don’t you get out before you make a bigger fool of yourself?
A few observations: First, it is disarming that the Iowan continues to shake Gingrich’s hand while simultaneously berating him. Second, while this video is brutal, I wonder if this could actually backfire and cause the public to be more sympathetic of Gingrich…
