John Lithgow Does His Best Newt Gingrich: Late Last Night

I don’t usually like to lead off with political commentary, you know, important topics and such. No, I usually like to lead off with some hot celeb talking about how they taught their kids to say “shit” or how their dog is like, the funniest person they know. But not today. Nay. Today, we shall start with something political and, frankly, epic. Newt Gingrich released a statement this week regarding his future and our nation’s, but nothing is quite as epic as the rendition that  John Lithgow gives the Newty overture. (If you can’t stand listening to Colbert’s great intro, the Lithgowy goodness starts at the 3:25 mark, but you should just watch the whole thing.)
