We all knew he was coming hard after Mitt with his newfound cache of funny money. But who knew he was planning to become a suicide bomber? His office in D.C. is on K Street — the K apparently stands for Kamikaze. He is now out Ron Paul-ing Ron Paul himself.

I had him on my radio show last night before the polls in New Hampshire closed, and I tried to get Newt to explain what’s gotten into him. He seemed surprised that some people might be taken aback by his new Barack Obama-like theories on how much money is too much. Like, $60 million on a $30 million investment — that’s OK, Newt explained at length yesterday. Ninety million — thumbs up. But by God, if you make $180 million on $30 million, a six-fold profit, well, whoa Nellie…

What do you suppose the Union Leader thinks of its Newt endorsement now? First he doesn’t even show up in the Granite State for 15 days after he gets the nod, and then in the closing hours he morphs into a butch Ariana Huffington.
