If you're like everybody, then there's nothing in the world that you hold so dear to your heart as the faint hope that one day you will get to sit in a room and have Newt Gingrich explain, in condescending tones, why he is so much smarter than you. It is literally the most popular fantasy in America. Which is probably why so many songs have been written about it.
Problem is, who has the $60,000 that Gingrich is always bragging that he charges to make such sweet dreams come true? Sure, you have $25,000, but that doesn't even get you half way there.
What if I told you that I had news that could change your entire life?
Newt Gingrich is back on the speaking circuit, but his fees appear to have dropped steeply since he was boasting of charging $60,000 a speech. The Worldwide Speakers Group is offering Gingrich for speaking events in Washington, D.C. starting at $25,000 per speech, according to a source familiar with his arrangement…
That puts his speaking fees below James Carville's and Mike Huckabee's… but Gingrich — who is trying to reassemble his private sector empire after a presidential bid that left it in ruins — may be able to make up on volume what he loses on sticker price.
Unfortunately, if you live in Europe or Asia, you're going to have to pay around $100,000 for the privilege of learning why your civilization and society are so inferior to the American way of life. But it's totally worth it!
