Every time he would come up, just lump him with "Other" as in Polls (58% support Other), discussions of candidate statements ("In addition to Ron Paul, other candidates have commented on Gingrich marital problems, one stating 'abcdefg hijkl' ") and so forth. Maybe a couple of pictures of the back of his head at debate would be good.
