Gingrich Going Off The Conservative/Republican Reservation

 I just finished marveling at what Rick Perry was saying about Mitt Romney's days at Bain Capital.  Now a SuperPac supporting Newt Gingrich is producing a spot that you wouldn't be surprised to see coming from

Gingrich has spent the last few weeks challenging Romney to take responsibility for what SuperPacs that support him are putting out.  So I guess it's fair to impute responsibility for this to Gingrich.  From the little I know about the mentality of conservatives, I would expect this to damage his reputation in conservative Republican circles irreparably--even to the point of endangering his future as a talking head on Fox News.  Can conservatives really hate Romney enough to forgive Gingrich for an ideological and partisan sin of this magnitude?

This seems kind of unprecedented. Newt must be really really angry at Mitt. This really plays into Obama's hands and can be dusted off after Mitt wins the nomination. Why would a Republican do this?
