Newt Gingrich: former Speaker of the House, GOP presidential nominee, 'Lord of the Rings' fanatic. OK, that third fact is just speculation, but it's hard not to think it after watching Gingrich's new political ad, which, as Vanity Fair has pointed out, features background music that sounds awfully similar to the Howard Shore composition Peter Jackson used in 'The Return of the King,' when Samwise Gamgee comes back to the Shire. Maybe Newt and Bilbo Baggins are lifelong friends? Or, could he be in possession of the one ring that will rule us all? Again, all speculation. For your convenience, the ad, and a clip of the music, has been posted below.
