Newt Gingrich Having Twittergasms Over His Easter Candies

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Infantile wingnuts find solace in chocolate, Twitter.
Has an infantile Republican has-been ever been so excited about Easter chocolates? Newt Gingrich usually gets his spouse cancer and a divorce for Easter, so he was super excited when his latest wife, “Callista,” got the big fat baby some children’s Easter treats. And this was hardly Newt’s only Twitter paean to candy on the solemn occasion of the Lord’s return from the grave. Three more drooling-for-candies messages preceded this one.

You know who *else* liked Reese's?

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Potater

    This had better turn into an inspiring story about free market capitalism or I’m walking.

  • dum librul

    Newt’s twats read like a first grader’s “what I did for Easter” essay, which is a way higher level than Republican talking points normally communicate on.

  • Katydid

    Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you’re a fucking retarded asshole has-been who seemingly tweet out his ass and just cannot figure a way to be taken seriously again. Note to Newt: This ain’t it.

  • V572625694

    This won’t help Newt’s panniculus.

  • Katydid

    And does Harrison Ford know about this?

  • dum librul

    Alternatively, keep your eyes open for internet’s latest viral video, “Two cups, one Newt,” with guest appearance by David Vitter.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    Callista’s logic:

    1) Surfeit of Reese’s PB cups
    2) Football-sized clot
    3) Massive heart attack
    4) ?????????
    5) PROFIT!

  • proudgrampa

    Why? Just, why?

    Is he going to be sharing his TP preference next?

  • Buzz Feedback

    It all looks the same in the diaper, Newt.

  • joezoo

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    Yes, but which Peep animal does he prefer?

  • PsycGirl

    [re=548467]Potater[/re]: I read that as “This had better turn into an inspiring story about free market capitalism or I’m WANKING” at first. I definitely need more coffee.

  • weejee

    [re=548470]V572625694[/re]: That was a subcutaneous snark. Well done.

  • ManchuCandidate

    This the least lame that Newtie’s been for a long time.

    That being said, what guy (not even chocoholics I know) obsesses about chocolate? I like Reese’s too, but I don’t write twats about it. Zombie Jeebus rose to heaven for your sins Newty! Where’s the love for all things Jeebus?

  • Katydid

    Next up, a twat from Bill-o: I got a loofah for Easter. How do you work this damn thing? Fuck it, we’ll do it live!

  • JMP

    Judging by the over-excited tone of his messages, I think for Newt the chocolate bunny and Reese’s are code for Oxycontin and meth. Thanks for the thoughtful gifts, Callista!

    Here’s an interesting and informative picture of a side by side comparison of Newt Gingrich with Callista and Serena Williams with Common in a beach wear-off.

  • V572625694

    [re=548494]Escape Goat Nation[/re]: Those wacky folks @TMZ! Hahahaha.

    Serena’s thighs are a bit frightening.

  • Simba B

    So it was Newt that crashed Twitter.

  • mumblyjoe

    Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the #1 intellectual voice in the modern-day republican party.

  • ManchuCandidate

    [re=548494]Escape Goat Nation[/re]:
    What was seen can not be unseen.

    thank you for causing my eyeballs to bleed.

  • bitchincamaro

    And by “peanut butter cups” he means “cock”.

  • Troubledog

    Actually I thought Newt’s nostalgic little posts were genuine and charming. I was touched.

  • bitchincamaro

    [re=548482]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: Gerbil, silly.

  • obfuscator

    fatfaced middle aged man, pleeeease enlighten us as to your candy preferences!!1!

    what a crashing bore newt is. i can’t wait to read about how he hates mondays and long lines at the post office.

  • queeraselvis v 2.0

    [re=548494]Escape Goat Nation[/re]: MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOBS.

  • megs

    That’s adorable.

  • Terry

    As much as I dislike Newt and maintain a completely lack of respect for him, those Reese’s eggs are awesome.

  • Radiotherapy

    If only he got this excited about his second wife.

    You got chocatholic stupid on my right wing nuttery. You got right wing nuttery on my….

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    Newt for president 2012!


    Free Candy!!!!

  • inedalo

    hey newt, tell us more about your “family values” values, and how you cheated on your wife as she struggled with cancer, etc. great guy. one of the biggest fattest hypocrites in modern politics, and arrogant to boot.

  • TubeCity

    “Then I learned big bunnies were way too many calories, so now I get small bunnies, but in large quantities! It works, just like cutting taxes raises revenue!”

  • RPolanski

    New Orleans is a chocolate city, Newt. Why not head down there and eat chocolate to your heart’s content.

  • smitallica

    That’s the thing about these chocolate bunnies, man. I get bigger. They stay the saaaaame size.

  • Oldskool

    Reagan worship doesn’t look any better when you imitate his dementia, Newt.

  • attorneyatlol

    what’s weird is that he doesn’t seem to get that a reese’s egg is just a peanut butter cup in egg shape

  • Madeline

    Kevin from The Office seems to have hijacked Newt’s twitter. “Hijacking Newt’s twitter” sounds kinda dirty. And gross, because it’s Newt.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Dear Newt: Observational humor works best under two conditions — you are observant and you are funny. You might want to stick with oblivious seriousness.

  • artpepper

    But cadbury eggs still beat Reese’s egg. Did kraft buy cadbury?

    I prefer the solid chocolate bunnies; hollow bunnies also yummy.

    [re=548474]queeraselvis v 2.0[/re]: We can only hope! I wonder if Drano tastes like candy?

  • WadISay

    Is it just my imagination, or, since Newt became a Catholic have they gotten more rapey?

  • Maxine of Arc

    [re=548536]attorneyatlol[/re]: I beg to differ! The eggs (and other holiday-specific novelties) are superior to the regular peanut butter cups in every way: the chocolate is softer and less waxy, and there’s a higher ratio of peanut butter.

  • Mr Blifil

    Why do his reports of his sweet tooth cravings cause me to picture excrement being wriggled around in?

  • Cicada

    I’m a bit late to the comments because the Peeps sugar coating my fingers interferes with my typing. What’s this about a grown man obsessing over candy? Har har what an idiot.

    *wipes caramel smear from cheek*

  • floatingdock

    and by bunnies I mean dildo.

  • libwakman

    So sweet of Newties old lady Calligula to stuff his fat ass full of artery blocking goodies. Could she have ulterior motives feeding lard ass lard assed candy?
    I can only hope so.
    Newt, you are a fuckin’ moran.

  • rocktonsammy

    Didn’t he represent Georgia?

    Hes a chocolate carpetbagger/dickface.

  • chaste everywhere

    Newt done confused Reese’s cups with Rhesus monkeys, for whom he saves his wriggliest Easter lovin’.

  • Darkness

    [re=548498]mumblyjoe[/re]: My first reaction was, oh, well a blathering senile old git can’t possibly win the presidency . . .

  • sezme

    Why does Newt insist on mocking Trig?

  • An Outhouse

    Did someone steal his tweeter ma gadget? Somebody named Sarah Palin? Jesus, either that happened or the guy seriously needs a cup of warm milk and to be institutionalized.

  • mustardman

    This must be Newts coded message to begin the attack on ‘gubmit’!

  • PlanetWingnuta

    would it be wrong if i asked newt on a tweat if Calista and he visited the hersey highway?

    “now I get small bunnies”
    isn’t that like some kind of republican senator kink?

  • Potater

    [re=548485]PsycGirl[/re]: Well I’m doing that regardless of Newt’s twattering tales of fancy.

  • Jim89048

    As if I didn’t already have enough reasons to boycott Hershey’s. A bunch of years ago they closed down their plant in Oakdale CA, fired all their illegal immigrant employees and moved the plant to Mexico, and took their sweet tax cuts along for the ride.

  • GollyGeeWilly

    Jesus, he seems like one of the Palin Tards!!!

  • Jukesgrrl

    Newt got chocolate bunnies ($10/pound), I got Peeps (99 cents/per dozen). Is that trickle-down Easter candy for hobos.

  • Bearbloke

    I like poop. ppoopy

    Happy Half-Price Chocolate Day, everyone!

    I love Reese’s, but Newt and Hershey are both on my personal shitlist. I did learn, thanks to Nigella Lawson and her “Peanut Butter Squares” recipe, that the best way to approximate the Reese’s filling is to mix some butter, some brown sugar, and a whackload of powdered sugar into peanut butter. YUM.
