Steve Benen: Disgraced former House Speaker Newt Gingrich recently boasted that presidential campaigns as extraordinary as his are only seen “once or twice in a century.” He may have been onto something. After all, it takes a special kind of presidential candidate to go on vacation three weeks after launching a campaign:
