The story broke last night as pundits, analysts and late night talk show hosts began to connect the dots. Jimmy Kimmel noted in his monologue how focused the candidate was on certain topics,
"I know the debate was supposed to be on foreign affairs, but did anyone notice that Newt kept going on what a friend the US has with the Turkish government? Even when the other nominees talked about illegal immigration Newt kept going on about how inhuman it was to baste turkeys."In the wee hours of the early morning CNN anchor Louis Canard compared a series of photographs with devastating effects on the Gingrich campaign.

The Gingrich team immediately went into crisis management mode. Spokesperson Marvin S. Galliformes cried fowl at the charges.
These outlandish claims are baseless. I wish to say that Mr Gingrich is not and has never been a wild or domestic turkey. Newt is a proud American and has always been pro-mammal.However the turkey, so to speak, was out of the bag. The morning news shows dissected all of the candidate's pro-turkey views such as increasing the number of turkeys the President annually pardoned from being eaten on Thanksgiving from two to forty-six million and replacing the bald eagle with the noble turkey as the country's official animal.
Newt eventually called a press conference to announce that he will no longer continue to seek the office of the President of the United States. In his closing remark Mr. Gingrich stated that the mainstream press will no longer be able to ruffle his feathers.
