Election 2012

Newt Gingrich Buys the Weirdest Things

So we already know that Newt Gingrich -- self-proclaimed fiscal conservative -- buys ridiculously expensive jewelry, goes on ridiculously garish cruises, and has racked up a crapload of personal debt.

But did you know that he's also buying fake Twitter followers?

No, I'm not making that up. Hilarious, considering how Newt bragged about the size of his cock Twitter following:

"I have six times as many Twitter followers as all the other candidates combined, but it didn't count because if it counted I'd still be a candidate; since I can't be a candidate that can't count."

National joke.
