Newt has finally exited the Republican primary stage right, but not before leaving 4 million dollars in debt and campaign staffers wondering if they’re ever going to get paid. (Don’t hold your breath.)
Fox News’s Shep Smith (who usually cracks me up and whom I actually like, for the most part) reacted to Romney’s reaction to the news in a way that is already an instant classic, and sums up the stupidfest that is the Republican primary:

ABL aka Angry Black Lady aka Imani Gandy is a recovering attorney with a burning love of fire and perfectly-constructed sentences. The “anger” portion of her moniker stems not from her displeasure at the hellscape that American politics has become, but rather is a symptom of the pituitary tumor which has been indefinitely detained in her brain since 2006. When she’s not pointing out that people are wrong on the Internet – or writing for Balloon Juice, The Grio, The Team Uterati Wiki Project, or RH Reality Check -- she likes long sits on the beach. Also, she thinks gravity is a real downer. You can follow her on Twitter at @AngryBlackLady.
