Wiles: Newt Brings Gaelic Fury To The GOP Race (15)

“Kit” Daugherty’s fine broth of a boy just upended Republican politics.

Newt Gingrich’s winning streak may not last. But, until then, American voters have front row seats to enjoy something very old. Julius Caesar’s troops experienced it when they landed in Britannia in 55 B.C. CNN’s John King just experienced it too. And he’s still walking funny – which is a lucky break for him.

After South Carolina’s GOP primary, Mitt Romney’s missing a few teeth.

How did this happen? Well, Governor Romney, shake hands with Gaelic fury.

The Gaelic Fury is Newt Gingrich, son of Kathleen Daugherty and one Newton Leroy McPherson. Born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, Newt was raised by his Mom and stepdad after his parents divorced. Most honorably, Gingrich’s step-father adopted Newt and gave him his name.
