Newt Gingrich's presidential bid is off to a disastrous start.
The egotistical, one-time Boy Wonder of conservative politics has gotten off to a gaffe-prone, creaky, stumbling start.
He seems out of his element and out of his era.

"It's just fun," he said. "When they do 'Dancing Queen' in the movie, I just think it's a great sequence. I love that sequence -- the energy, the excitement."
Gingrich's secret passion for ABBA was revealed when his cell phone suddenly rang during a campaign stop in Iowa, where he has been trying to launch a presidential campaign.
"Dancing Queen," Gingrich sheepishly admitted, is his ringtone.
"My wife warned me this would happen," he said, referring to third wife, Calista.
