(Newser) – Now that Newt Gingrich has finally, finally, finally dropped out of the presidential race, Comedy Central bids him adieu with an inspired take on a classic children’s book.

The "book," actually a series of slides, also says goodnight to other classics from the Gingrich campaign, including the "food stamp president" and "poll numbers showing beyond a reasonable doubt that Newt Gingrich will win the nomination." The artwork is the highlight, particularly the last page, showing Gingrich in bed with the moon base visible from his window in a spoof of the classic Clement Hurd illustrations in Margaret Wise Brown’s Goodnight Moon.
