Fact of the Day: Newt Gingrich's Birth Name

Gingrich was born Newton McPherson. His parent's marriage fell apart as about as soon as it started. He later took on his stepfather's name.

I never thought "Newt" was short for anything; I just assumed he was named after a lizard

Yeah Newt is one of the worst names I ever heard. He's also one of the worst politicians I've ever seen so it guess it goes hand and hand.
