I've Got a Dr. Fever and the Only Cure Is, No Wait, That's Not Right

When I saw this story today:

A behind-the-scenes battle to take the reins of the Republican National Committee is taking off between former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael S. Steele.

I couldn't help but flash back to this paraphrased excerpt from WKRP in Cincinatti with Michael Steele and Newt Gingrich standing in for Loni Anderson's boy toy and Les Nessman, respectively:

Michael Steele: I believe a man's name should reflect his personality. My name's Steele. (Reaches out to shake hands) What's your name?
Newt Gingrich: Newt. Newt Gingrich.
