MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista were hit with glittery confetti by a protester Tuesday during the couple's appearance at a book-signing.
The man approached the Gingriches during the signing at a downtown Minneapolis hotel, dumped a cracker box full of colorful confetti on the pair and said, "Feel the rainbow, Newt! Stop the hate! Stop anti-gay politics!"
Two Associated Press reporters witnessed the event. The man was quickly pushed out of the room by an event organizer as the Gingriches brushed confetti out of their hair and laps.
Newt Gingrich smiled as he brushed confetti off the table, and said, "Nice to live in a free country."
Although authorities couldn't immediately confirm the man's identity, he appeared to be Nick Espinosa, a prankster who has disrupted at least two other political events in Minnesota, including one in which he dumped a bagful of pennies in the lap of a Republican candidate for governor last year.

The sad thing is that Newt wants someone else to pay for this guy’s health insurance.
I am not a Newt supporter, but why the heck does anyone want to run for political office?
The creep who did this should be sent to prison for 4 or 5 years. This could have easily been acid or some other toxic substance.
Anyone just see this narcissist on Greta?
A 2x4 would have been only marginally more effective!
He is a flipping disaster in motion.
Hey, Gringrich can be a 2x4 if you like that... He can say a lot of different kinds of things like he almost believes them.
There are guys that go around throwing pies in people's faces, and they get tried for assault, exactly because the pies might not be made of just whipped cream.
But part of me likes the idea that those at the top of the food chain who are almost completely isolated from the rest of us have to occasionally deal with the rabble.
The persons who should be punished are not the pranksters, but the security details who can't keep the pranksters away.
That tongue has been to some dark and awful places.
Didn’t Noot have a sister who is a dyke?
When he found himself covered with confetti, Newt’s first thought must have been that his brain exploded
“The creep who did this should be sent to prison for 4 or 5 years. This could have easily been acid or some other toxic substance.”
Nothing is now illegal if Done-While-Democrat. Don’t you know that by now?
Instead of jail, this klown will get a book deal, and MSNBC contract, and an appearance on Oprah, where he will detail his great deed.
That tongue strangely looks like a snake head .
>> This could have easily been acid or some other toxic substance.
But it wasn’t.

Pinging you to post 13. LMAO!!
Ah those sodomites. What a fun bunch of people...
