Cue the sad music

Because apparently unless Newt Gingrich finds a rich prospect for wife number four, he's already looking well-toasted in the 2012 race.

Newt Gingrich raised a meager $53,000 into his political action committee in the first three months of the year, highlighting potential fundraising difficulties as the former House Speaker girds for a campaign for the GOP presidential nomination...

Meanwhile the even crazier Michelle Bachmann raised $2.2 million.

Say, that sounds like a match, Newt. Hope you have enough to send flowers.

Maybe Newt could try the Donald Trump way and get richer through bankruptcy?

Well, if the fatcats wanted to put big money down on an insane, irrelevant asshole, they'd be getting Steve Forbes to run again.

I'm guessing that Newticles figures that $53K is too little for the FEC to worry about, so he's plotting how to divert the money to hookers and blow.
