So much for conservative consolidation:
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrichs faltering campaign is about to get another shot in the arm, CBS News has learned.
Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson plans to give another $10 million to the outside group backing the former Georgia lawmaker who is running behind former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, a source close to Adelson told CBS News.
Adleson and his family have already given $11 million to Winning our Future, the super PAC backing Gingrich. The group, which bombarded the airwaves in South Carolina last month ahead of the primary there, is largely credited with helping Gingrich win in the Palmetto state.
The latest $10 million cash injection would raise the Adelson familys contribution to $21 million, and a different source close to Adelson said he is prepared to drop another $4 million for a total of $25 million. The Huffington Post calculated that the billionaire casino owner earns about $3.3 million an hour.

I thought we were up to at least $100 million...
I wish I was in the Casino business XD
Good news though.
Newt is light years better than Rick. Good news.
Now use every dollar to take out Willard the Lib!
Lol, I just pinged you. I’m always late to the party!!
You may be late, but we never start without you.
Isn’t this wonderful news?
The funds raised in these FReepathons go to pay our current quarter expenses. But we're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little extra now, if we can, and the rest next quarter.
Go Newt. use this money to point out the issues about BO that the MSM would never bring up. His promises that he has never kept on: transparency; on unemployment; on what has happened with fast and furious; wasted money on Solyndra; the fact that gas prices are going thru the roof, because the Prez has sold his soul to the eco-nazi robber barons; bowing down to dictators; turning NASA into a school for building up Muslim self esteem, on and on ad nauseum.
Guess we can hold off on the NEWTathon until next month now.

You know if Little Ricky takes out Mittens then it will be the Master vs the Apprentice....I’ll place my money on the Master.
