Newt's Sugar Daddy Pulling The Plug

Hey Newt, don't wanna hurt your feelings or anything, but see that fat lady in the corner? She's singing, buddy. Boy, is she singing.

Sheldon Adelson, the renown hotel and casino billionaire who has kept Newt Gingrich’s campaign alive all these months with donations totaling $15 million dollars, told an informal small group earlier in the week that the former Speaker’s campaign is “at the end of the line.”

This has been a pretty terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week for the Newtster. First came news that the press corps had abandoned ship, making the choice to no longer tag along his campaign stops. Then the bank account started looking a little dry, so the decision was made to cut staff, including his campaign manager:

The campaign is cutting one-third of its full-time staff and replacing its manager as part of an effort to sustain itself, campaign spokesman R.C. Hammond said. In addition, Gingrich will not travel as frequently to the remaining primary-contest states and will focus instead on communicating with voters via the Internet, videos and social media.

Have no fear, Ellis the Elephant is still going around with them as the Gingriches downshift back to book-signings and 50 dollars a pop photo ops. And now his sugar daddy is telling the media that his campaign is over? Ouch.

Meanwhile, Gingrich is trying to straddle the seemingly impossible line of staying in the race to the convention in order to deny Romney as many delegates as he can while not turning into a laughingstock with his budget basement campaign and his penny-ante profiteering by pimping children's books and photos.

Good luck with that.
