    He's renting out his donor list to make extra cash to pay his campaign debt.

    Now that you have made me aware of it, I will be angry. Thanks.

    Now that I have been made aware of the cost, I still don't care.

    I'm not opposed to all government spending.

    I am opposed to stupid, needless and unauthorized government spending.

    It is arguable that the Newt campaign should officially fold its tents and that the "need" for such expensive protection should then be formally and officially reassessed. But until then, it still falls into at least a proper category.
