Newt Gingrich as the Black Knight

Jeff Greenfield compares Newt Gingrich to the Black Knight of Monty Python and the Holy Grail fame.

"As his limbs are progressively hacked off, the knight declares 'tis but a scratch! Then: 'a flesh wound!' And finally: 'Alright, we'll call it a draw.'

Meanwhile, a new CNN/Opinion Research poll finds 61% of Republican voters want Gingrich to exit the race.
