Billionaires with endless surplus cash to toss around often buy eccentric oddities to amuse themselves, or just because they can. Gold plated ear buds, exotic African animals for their personal zoo, private jets, private islands . . .

Billionaire husband and wife team Sheldon and Miriam Adelson are so very rich, with almost $22 billion in the bank, the 8th wealthiest persons in America weren't happy with their other fancy toys, so they bought themselves a whole, entire person of their very own!

Not just any person, but a large person. A big fat court jester and presidential wannabe who can provide them endless hours of entertainment and unwavering support for Israel.

Newtron Gingrich had a price tag it seems, and $10 million hit the mark.

Just like magic, checkbooks appear and money rains on him like proverbial (literally) manna from Heaven.

Casino magnate Sheldon provided an initial $5 million to pad the SuperPAC Newt uses to fund his campaign, if not his cheeseburger habit. Shelly's wife Miriam tossed in another $5 million following his win in South Carolina. 

Why can't they buy a white tiger or endangered panda or something?  But I digress . . .

$10 billion to his personal PAC. That's a lotta Tiffany's bling for Callie, enough to keep his shrink-wrapped and shellacked bride clear-coated in diamonds for years to come. She might just survive that nuclear explosion a Gingrich presidency could likely provoke.
