• Newt Gingrich Now Charging for Pictures of Newt Gingrich

    In a sign that his campaign is in need of fresh funds, Newt Gingrich on Monday began charging $50 to have a photograph taken with him following a campaign speech to Republican groups here in the northernmost part of the state.

    "Some campaigns make you travel all the way to Wall Street to pay $2,500 for a photo with a candidate," a Gingrich spokesman said in an e-mail. "We are trying out a new tactic and asking our supporters at our rallies for a nominal donation. And guess what, it is working."

    Good point! Very good point!

    Also, think of it like this: Do you have any idea how much it would cost you to stack up five and a half feet of pizza dough in your own house to take your picture next to? Take it from me, this is a much cheaper alternative. And only slightly more fetid.
