Gingrich Heckled: "Get Out Now Before You Make A Bigger Fool Of Yourself"

I'm not a fan of heckling, so I say this without endorsing it: That's an effective heckle. If you want to hurt someone, hit them where they hurt.

Apparently the guy didn't even plan a big heckling incident. He just did it.

Gingrich, visibly stunned, quickly moved forward to talk with other guests.

Fuhrman told The Register afterward that he just happened to be at the hotel. He said he’s upset with Gingrich’s disagreements with parts of the House Republican Medicare reform plan.

Fuhrman said he’s a solid Republican but that Ginrich “is a jerk.”

“I’m a strong Republican but he’s an embarrassment to our party,” Fuhrman said.

Thanks to DrewM. DrewM.'s doing his own heckling of Gingrich.

I don't know what it is about Gingrich. I have to admit, there is something about him, currently, that is really rubbing me the wrong way, and I don't think it's entirely rational. Yes, he's up to his old tricks again with his carefully-crafted call-them-extreme language (he used to give seminars on doing just this to Republican hopefuls), and this time deploying it against the Ryan plan; but seriously? I sort of get that. Sort of. I doubt any candidate will embrace the Ryan plan, and I wouldn't advise anyone too.

Still... he didn't have to call it radical.

Anyway, for whatever reason, he's just really annoying me. I used to like him, but thought he was a little too slick and false. Now everything about him seems calculated and contrived.

I don't know if that's fair. I'm just saying, right now, I'd like to see some of the same authenticity and realness in Gingrich that I see in Mitt Romney.
