Newt Gingrich has taken a beating lately, what with a mass staff exodus and further revelations about his million-dollar credit line at Tiffany’s. So how does the 2012 Republican presidential candidate and former college teacher prove he’s still in the game? By releasing a straight-to-class video, a freshman-level introductory lesson on the Federal Reserve.
