Is Newt a newt?

The Congressman-turned-House-Speaker-turned-lobbyist-turned-presidential-candidate might share more with these tiny aquatic creatures than just a name.

A newt’s ability to regenerate his limbs is surely a characteristic Gingrich has in spades — at least metaphorically.  And then there’s the whole leap-frogging thing. Only an amphibian could hop over Bachmann, Perry, Romney, and Cain.

But don’t take our word for it. For Election 2012, you decide.
