Gingrich insult rankles RNC members (CNN)
From CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby

WASHINGTON (CNN) Several members of the Republican National Committee are miffed at Newt Gingrich for claiming that theyre a small bunch of egomaniacs who need to be coddled by the party chairman.

Newt needs to take a breath, New Jersey committeeman David Norcross told CNN.

Gingrich made the assertion on C-SPAN Thursday when asked about a new resolution put forth by some veteran members including Norcross and RNC Treasurer Randy Pullen of Arizona that would limit chairman Michael Steeles ability to control how the committee spends its money.

That resolution has sparked a fresh round of infighting between Steele loyalists on the committee and entrenched members who backed other candidates for the chairmanship and remain skeptical of his leadership.

Defending Steeles tumultuous start, Gingrich said the chairman might be under fire from some in the committee because he probably has not yet learned the art of massaging the egos of RNC members.

:eyes: :eyes: :eyes: Ummm ... project much, Newt? :eyes: :eyes: :eyes:

I think at this point Newt's career has been reduced to comedy performance art for logicians.
