The guy who wrote this about Newt Gingrich quit today

Rick Tyler, Newt Gingrich's press flack, had this to say when his boss criticized Paul Ryan's plan to end Medicare and in turn became the target for a conservative backlash:
“The literati sent out their minions to do their bidding,” Tyler wrote. “Washington cannot tolerate threats from outsiders who might disrupt their comfortable world. The firefight started when the cowardly sensed weakness. They fired timidly at first, then the sheep not wanting to be dropped from the establishment’s cocktail party invite list unloaded their entire clip, firing without taking aim their distortions and falsehoods. Now they are left exposed by their bylines and handles. But surely they had killed him off. This is the way it always worked. A lesser person could not have survived the first few minutes of the onslaught. But out of the billowing smoke and dust of tweets and trivia emerged Gingrich, once again ready to lead those who won’t be intimated by the political elite and are ready to take on the challenges America faces.”
Does it sound like Rick Tyler liked Newt Gingrich? Yeah, well Rick Tyler and pretty much everyone else who worked for the presidential campaign of Newt Gingrich quit today.

Out of the billowing smoke and dust of tweets and trivia Newt Gingrich's entire campaign quit today. Ouch.
