Andy Richter Does Newt Gingrich Impression On 'Conan' (VIDEO)

With Newt Gingrich looking more and more like the frontrunner in the GOP race, the people over at "Conan" decided that they needed a resident Newt Gingrich for all of their parody sketches.

Their search didn't go far, though, since all you need to do is put a gray wig on Andy Richter to get a pretty close approximation.

The side-by-side of Richter and Gingrich is truly impressive, but something tells us Andy's going to need to work on some catchphrases before they start putting him in any sketches.
