Wow. Our experiment is off to a great start—let's see if we can finish it off sooner than expected.
Mother Jones illustrator Zina Saunders creates editorial animations riffing on the political news and current events of the week. In this week's animation, Godzilla Newt Gingrich lumbers onto the campaign trail and promptly makes a mess of things. As always, that's Saunders performing the voiceovers. Sound effects are from freesound.org. —The Editors
UPDATE: Zina sent along one more depiction of Newt, originally commissioned for David Corn's 2009 magazine piece "Dawn of a Newt Age".
