Already Depressed Newt Gingrich Hit With Box of Glitter

by Jack Stuef


Newt Gingrich’s week has been so bad that he can’t shake one person’s hand without that nobody immediately making news. First it was the “get out!” guy; now Newt has had a box of glitter dumped on him because he dislikes gays. Yes, glitter is a more cost-effective way to be shiny than running up huge bills at a jewelry store, but if you’re going to give Newt this tip, please just say it to him, don’t pour it on him. Also: it would probably be funnier if you covered him in gold paint. What other indignities has the jowly potato noggin been through in recent hours?

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich apologized in a telephone call to House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) on Tuesday afternoon for his remarks on “Meet the Press,” where the presidential candidate referred to Ryan’s Medicare proposal as “radical change.”

Awkward. And not just one call. Newt also had to sit through an hour of conference calls getting chewed out by Teabagger “leaders.”

The glitter guy with the messenger bag is apparently the same guy with the messenger bag who dumped an NPR tote of pennies in front of (“on”) then Minnesota Republican gubernatorial nominee Tom Emmer. This time with Newt, at least some of the object got on the candidate, so the guy is getting better at it. The box is better than the tote bag, we guess, but maybe this guy could get one of those power house-painter things. And use it to shoot santorum at Santorum. [AP/Politico]

Post needs more Lea Michelle.

PsycWench May 18, 2011 at 10:48 am

Needs better aim and more glue.

Terry May 18, 2011 at 11:13 am

Looks like glitter got in that bleach blonde's hair, too. Is that Callista? With all the processing in her hair, the weight of the glitter might be enough to snap it all clean off.

Not_So_Much May 18, 2011 at 11:29 am

Glue seems like a lot of extra steps. Just drop a horse on him.

JustPixelz May 18, 2011 at 11:54 am

Glitter and glue is the new tar and feather.

carlgt1 May 18, 2011 at 10:48 am

the creepy right-wing lecture by Newt's handler at the end was the best

Urban_Achiever May 18, 2011 at 10:49 am

"Peace be with you" INDEED!!!

carlgt1 May 18, 2011 at 10:51 am

And the weird idea he touts ie Repugs not interrupting gay pride parades somehow means gays (and everyone else) oppressed by right-wing idiocy shouldn't fight back. It's all form over substance.

carlgt1 May 18, 2011 at 10:53 am

haha there's a Newt downfister going around here!

PsycWench May 18, 2011 at 10:55 am

On it!

PostApocalypse May 18, 2011 at 11:17 am

How do y'all know when a downfist is happening? I want to know who's fisting who!

Call me a gossip, I guess.

YeOldeFapSmith May 18, 2011 at 12:24 pm

Each year, I go to a few gay prides to party, as I am very debauched, and without fail at each event there is always a gaggle of Jesus Goblins picketing and harrassing folks. That said, this glitter guy's stunt was very lame and does nothing to further the cause, and I doubt he is someone I would care to drink with.

Texan_Bulldog May 18, 2011 at 11:03 am

He was definitely John Malkovich scary.

MarionNYNY May 18, 2011 at 11:30 am

You mean in Tom Ripley kind of way? (Ripley being both a sociopath serial killer, and a married, repressed gay man.)

Texan_Bulldog May 18, 2011 at 11:33 am

Don't know who that is but if you mean in a 'sphincter clinching, hair on the back of your neck stands up' kind of way, then yeah!

Barb May 18, 2011 at 10:49 am

I'm surprised Callista didn't roll up a Tiffany's receipt and start snorting the glitter so that she can feel all sparkly on the inside too.

ManchuCandidate May 18, 2011 at 11:25 am

That's what the Vadazzling is for.

Barb May 18, 2011 at 11:51 am

Great Manchu! Now I have yet another thing to worry about! Gosh, is Miss Mookie ready for company and all festive looking? We can't keep the damned Christmas lights up all year, ya know!

tessiee May 18, 2011 at 10:41 pm

Yeah, I can't count all the times I've thought to myself, "I dunno, I've got a pretty good life here, nice family, nice friends, but it just seems… meaningless somehow. Maybe if I had rhinestones superglued to my muffin, I'd feel happier."

Dashboard_Jesus May 19, 2011 at 12:27 am

I thought it was called 'VaJazzling'? http://www.vajazzling.com/vajazzling_pictures

Too late, she's been dead inside for 15 years…

mourningnmerica May 18, 2011 at 1:48 pm

Barb, it may be because I just had some coffee, so my senses are in a heightened state, but right now, it feels like that is the funniest comment I have ever seen on Wonkette.

Barb May 18, 2011 at 4:58 pm

Aww, thank you very much! I have two that stick out in my mind:
About "don't ask, don't tell" someone posted "permission to serve fabulously"
and about the Tostito College Bowl and Jared Laughner, someone posted "chips and dip shit"
I don't know who posted those. I wake up at times and remember them and giggle.

memzilla May 18, 2011 at 10:49 am

Glittered, Twittered, and In The Shi**er… Newt's Loot Scoots.

And there's your Daily Variety lede about his electability.

user-of-owls May 18, 2011 at 11:56 am

Boffo!

V572..whatever May 18, 2011 at 12:14 pm

Can't wait for the biopic.

Well actually I can…

tessiee May 18, 2011 at 10:43 pm

Nice.

Got a New York Post headline about him?

PsycWench May 18, 2011 at 10:50 am

"Have we ever disturbed one of your events?"
I don't know. Does vilifying, degrading and scapegoating count as "disturbing"?

Badonkadonkette May 18, 2011 at 11:00 am

Marriage is an event of sorts.

JustPixelz May 18, 2011 at 12:00 pm

If by "events" the guy meant "funerals for soldiers", I'm pretty sure his simpaticos have been doing some disturbing.

JustPixelz May 18, 2011 at 12:02 pm

Ya gotta admire Newt's minion describing two people at a card table as an "event". Why, I'm having an event right now with only a table and a laptop!

Barb May 18, 2011 at 10:50 am

Next time they should use salt and watch him dissolve like the slug he is.

carlgt1 May 18, 2011 at 10:55 am

that would be deemed a terrorist attack. hell, if Newt was more popular with the Repukes right now (not after he slammed Ryan's insipid "budget"), they would call this "terrorism!"

GeneralLerong May 18, 2011 at 11:40 am

Silly Gheys. Glitter on a turd is still a turd.

L188188 May 18, 2011 at 11:31 am

But at least the stink will be beautiful.

WunkRocker May 18, 2011 at 12:33 pm

You may not be able to polish a turd, but you can sparkle it up!

trondant May 18, 2011 at 1:19 pm

I had a dog once who got into a tin of homemade cookies in individual cupcake-style wrappers. When I walked her that night, there was confetti in her shit. It was still shit, but it was momentarily interesting to look at. Which is more than I can say for Newt.

Dashboard_Jesus May 19, 2011 at 12:33 am

pretty much sums up the Newter's whole campaign!

KeepFnThatChicken May 18, 2011 at 10:51 am

The irony of gay marriage advocacy is that homosexuals may one day have the ability to multiple-marry like Newt has.

Terry May 18, 2011 at 11:16 am

Newt's relationships can barely be called marriages, given all the various vow breaking and partner switching. Perhaps it'd be better to say that his relationships are the hetero equivalent of a San Francisco bath house back in the 70's.

V572..whatever May 18, 2011 at 12:16 pm

No reason teh Gheys should miss out on all the fun, attorney fees, and maintenance checks.

Gleem_McShineys May 18, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Is Newt really "married," or is it just a Civil Union / Jewelry Transfer Contract?

Buzz Feedback May 18, 2011 at 10:51 am

The Mrs. is never going to get the glitter out of all that foundation.

DustBowlBlues May 18, 2011 at 11:45 am

She's a fright, isn't she? Like Cindy McCain. What is it about Republithug women, over-bleached hair and dark lipstick on their thin lips. Maybe she should ask the Tiffany's people if they sell mirrors. Obviously, she needs one.

tessiee May 18, 2011 at 10:50 pm

No wonder they're all so bitchy.
Between the starvation diets, bleaching, waxing, Botox, and plastic surgery, they must live in a haze of constant pain.

Dashboard_Jesus May 19, 2011 at 12:40 am

perfect, and well said…explains the pained look on ALL of the Repig women's faces, even the duplicate bottle blond bimbos of Faux have the same grimace on their trolloped faces (must be HARD WORK gettin' that plaster off every night?) http://msmagazine.com/blog/blog/2010/04/08/watch-

Negropolis May 19, 2011 at 4:09 am

It's funny, though, cause Callista is even more made-up than Cindy. She's like a refined model of Cindybot.

chicken_thief May 18, 2011 at 1:07 pm

Like old wallpaper, they'll just paint right over it tomorrow.

tessiee May 18, 2011 at 10:47 pm

"The Mrs. is never going to get the glitter out of all that foundation."

A belt sander, one of those wire brushes for stripping furniture, and some Janitor in a Drum, and she'll be good as new.

PabaBritannica May 18, 2011 at 10:51 am

Poor Newt, soon he'll be reduced to getting heckled in front of the bookstore as he begs for "a dolla, to get a coffee or sumfin…"

Barb May 18, 2011 at 10:53 am

Someone should sprinkle the downfister with some glitter.

DaRooster May 18, 2011 at 11:08 am

Or some "Tinkle"

JustPixelz May 18, 2011 at 11:54 am

isn't that what we just saw in the video?

KeepFnThatChicken May 18, 2011 at 10:53 am

And I also want to say — at least once, in mixed company — that I can imagine Callista being a diva for gays. Though I'm loath to admit it because of her association with Jabba the Husband, in some regard she possesses that je ne sais quois

LesBontemps May 18, 2011 at 10:59 am
Terry May 18, 2011 at 11:19 am

Calista may be one of the only GOP power wives absolutely certain her husband is straight. No, Maria Shriver is certain, too.

LesBontemps May 18, 2011 at 11:23 am

The fact that she is 10 years younger than I am but still manages to look like she could be my mom is simply astounding.

Dashboard_Jesus May 19, 2011 at 1:05 am

I absolutely LOVED her in Mars Attacks, ACK ACK! (that hair is so fabulously extraterrestrial!) http://www.listal.com/viewimage/745279

carlgt1 May 18, 2011 at 10:54 am

wasn't the Koran burning basically a GOP event?

SorosBot May 18, 2011 at 10:55 am

Well Gingrich's campaign is looking like it'll be an even bigger bomb than the movie Glitter, and doesn't even have the advantage of Mariah Carey's tits.

JustPixelz May 18, 2011 at 11:55 am

tits? what? tits?

LowProfileinGA May 18, 2011 at 11:59 am

Man boobs don't count?

OurHoboSenator May 18, 2011 at 10:55 am

What a waste of good glitter.

Texan_Bulldog May 18, 2011 at 10:55 am

Must have really galled Newt to have to apologize to an upstart like Ryan; Ryan was probably counting incoming pubic hairs when Speaker Newt & Callista were making sweet extra-marital love on his desk at the Capitol. Ha ha!

tessiee May 18, 2011 at 10:53 pm

TWO disgusting mental pictures in one sentence!
You win, or fail, or something.

notreelyhelping May 18, 2011 at 10:56 am

Damn. I thought "Sympathy for the Devil" was going to kick in at the end, as those doors appeared to close by themselves.

The Glitter Assassin exclaiming "You're like a man!" was also tasty.

V572..whatever May 18, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Glitter Terrorist. Glitterist. Glitterito. Glitteratista. Wow, the possibilities are endless. Beats the crap out of giant papiér-mache heads, and cheaper too.

charlesdegoal May 18, 2011 at 10:56 am

When fundraising, he should keep in mind that all that glitter isn't gold.

freakishlywrong May 18, 2011 at 10:56 am

freakishlyfisty saves the pees!

horsedreamer_1 May 18, 2011 at 10:58 am

But enough about Belladonna.

Chillwaver May 18, 2011 at 10:57 am

You'd think Newt could use some free glitter right now…

EatsBabyDingos May 18, 2011 at 10:59 am

I'd like to hit Newt with a 100 pack of Mariah Carey's "Glitter."

proudgrampa May 18, 2011 at 11:01 am

Tempest in a teapot…

Gingrich is sooo irrelevant, now. I just hope he fades into obscurity.

Terry May 18, 2011 at 11:20 am

I want him to run with Trump or Palin as his VP candidate.

Dudleydidwrong May 18, 2011 at 11:59 am

I agree, but "slithers" is more accurate than "fades."

OhNoGuy May 18, 2011 at 9:39 pm

Irrelevant but refusing to go away. Years from now he'll be on late night & early morning TV selling edmacation DVD's. That is. once DVD's are the equivalent of Betamax tapes.

tessiee May 18, 2011 at 10:55 pm

"Irrelevant but refusing to go away. "

Forgotten but not gone?

DaSandman May 18, 2011 at 11:02 am

Shiny Mo attack!

Then Jeebus disguised as a the security guy passes judgment.

This is outstanding. It's not even noon on the right coast yet. Newt better find a bubble to crawl into.

This is good news for Rick Perry (who comes precoated with Texas-sized glitter).

Oh, and the guy lecturing him at the end? He's more in the closet than my old college band jacket.

Cheetah Repeater May 18, 2011 at 11:16 am

He's a bizarre mix of Jello Biafra and Yogi Berra, with just a smidge of cultist.

CapeClod May 18, 2011 at 11:09 am

Marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman, and then another woman when the first one gets cancer, and then a third woman when the second woman gets too old looking.

Thurman Munster IV May 18, 2011 at 11:15 am

And a fourth woman when the third is killed by a Blade Runner

Cheetah Repeater May 18, 2011 at 11:17 am

There's a bible verse for it somewhere.

Texan_Bulldog May 18, 2011 at 11:17 am

I think the 2nd wife had MS (or just been diagnosed with it). Callista better check to see if that line 'in sickness and in health' was omitted from his wedding vows…not that that would actually matter to Newt, apparently.

LowProfileinGA May 18, 2011 at 11:53 am

Callista has been so siliconized and Botoxed she'll never look old – much like the preserved Lenin I had to look at all weekend here at my primary source for hard news.

Callyson May 18, 2011 at 11:10 am

First pennies, now glitter…I geess Glitter Guy does not believe the business about not casting pearls before swine.

x111e7thst May 18, 2011 at 11:11 am

Newt Gingrich – Gary Glitter. Sure, I see the similarity.

BZ1 May 18, 2011 at 11:11 am

I think the glitter actually complements the not-so-glittery Newt…

baconzgood May 18, 2011 at 11:11 am

Feel the Rainbow? It would have been more apt to throw Skittles at him.

GuyClinch May 18, 2011 at 11:12 am

I wonder if she really wakes up next to Newt. I'd think that, given her space-helmet hair, she probably has some contraption in which she sleeps vertically with a protective halo around her head.

PsycWench May 18, 2011 at 11:25 am

You just made me realize why Callista seemed oddly familiar…she's a slightly larger version of Barbie in Toy Story 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPxHWJF3VGs
(too lazy for html code, sorry)

user-of-owls May 18, 2011 at 11:12 am

Here's hoping that Gingrich soon stakes out a strong anti-insecticide position.

"Peace be with you"? That sounds kinda Muslin.

oh damn damn damn I was going to write that and now all I get for my efforts is candide stuck in my head.

Monsieur_Grumpe May 18, 2011 at 11:14 am

No. Glitter does not get sharper with velocity. However the amount of kinetic energy does increase by the square of velocity (KE= 1/2 mV2) In other words, if you can get the glitter to move fast enough it could easily pass through Newt’s thick skull.

WriteyWriterton May 18, 2011 at 4:21 pm

Glitter could, but not facts.

Mumbletypeg May 18, 2011 at 11:14 am

Gingrich to Ryan: "those were not meant to be factual opinions…"

Papa_Uniform May 18, 2011 at 11:14 am

Poor Newt. This is the best thing that's happened to him so far this week.

littlebigdaddy May 18, 2011 at 11:16 am

If you're going to throw a symbol of gheyness on Newtie, may I suggest assless chaps.

freakishlywrong May 18, 2011 at 11:19 am

Or fresh Santorum.

Texan_Bulldog May 18, 2011 at 11:36 am

"assless chaps" and "Newtie" must never be used in the same sentence!

vacuumslayer May 18, 2011 at 11:36 am

This should be downfisted for putting the image of Newt in assless chaps in my head. My being a nice lady and all, I won't. But I will charge you for the brain bleach.

littlebigdaddy May 18, 2011 at 4:42 pm

I am truly sorry, but for you newbies I must remind you that this IS A WAR BLOG. Just like Navy SEAL Team 6, EXACTLY like them in fact, we must learn to become strong by opening ourselves up to the most disgusting of all possible human experiences, among the greatest of which would be seeing Newt in assless chaps. (I know, all chaps are assless–it depends on what you wear underneath!) This will only make us stronger for the struggle ahead!

OhNoGuy May 18, 2011 at 9:43 pm

Assless chaps? When did his ass fall off?

tessiee May 18, 2011 at 10:58 pm

God forbid! He might actually WEAR them!

Dr_pangloss May 19, 2011 at 8:07 am

Needs maor Crimson to the left. Newt is totally a double fister bottom.

I feel HANDLED now, myself! SHOWER TIME!

Cat_Damon May 18, 2011 at 11:21 am

Apologies for the non-snark, but despite how much of a douche Gingrich is, this guy with the glitter looks like an even bigger douche.

fuflans May 18, 2011 at 11:43 am

I don't know he looks ok to me. I just wish he'd saved some glitter for that elevator tool.

Now lets see her get a job in the Non-profit sector!!!!! I fuckin' work for monies in the real world. She's gonna be so bitch slapped in this depression. I know it's schadenfreude but it's nice to see that bitch eat s shit sandwitch.

P.S. UP FIST FOR YOU

I for one would like more gory details.

also, can I have her job?

"Peace be with you."

Fucking Muslins…

OhNoGuy May 18, 2011 at 9:45 pm

Not really at the end but still, fucking Catholics.

WhatTheHeck May 18, 2011 at 11:39 am

When the Family Values crowd finally realize Newt is not one of them, they may start throwing the Book at him. Literally.

sportshort May 18, 2011 at 11:40 am

Saw this on HP and loved this: "As he brushed glitter off the table Gingrich smiled and said,'Nice to live in a free country.' Ha! More like: As he smiled for the cameras, he inwardly seethed, thinking, "Fucking free country. When I get elected, people like you will be the first course in a rat restaurant, you fraggotty futhermucker."

bordo2 May 18, 2011 at 11:42 am

I kinda wish those had been sharp nails and not glitter, but then I am a cruel shithead.

Guppy06 May 18, 2011 at 11:44 am

So now Newt looks like he got a My Little Pony bukkake?

fuflans May 18, 2011 at 11:45 am

divorcing your wife is easier than running for president, isn't it newt?

That was a an extremely creepy "Peace (Piece?) be with you" as the elevator doors closed on the fat fuck Christian security guy.

OhNoGuy May 18, 2011 at 9:50 pm

Newt's a Catholic so that was a Swiss Guard in plain clothes. "Is that a halberd in your pocket or are you just glad to see me".

Weenus299 May 18, 2011 at 11:57 am

All that glitters is Newt gold.

Redhead May 18, 2011 at 12:06 pm

The guard's expression, when the elevator doors are closing and he says, "Peace be with you," looks a lot like Mittens' picture in this post: http://wonkette.com/416681/mitt-romney-wins-some-

fgdesign May 18, 2011 at 12:25 pm

How far in the closet is the guy who escorted him out?

blinky_twinkie May 18, 2011 at 12:46 pm

Unicorns or GTFO.

Gopherit May 18, 2011 at 1:04 pm

"Peace be with you"? Shit, I bet that guy is an Opus Dei hit man.

owhatever May 18, 2011 at 1:13 pm

He was just happy it was the Gehz with glitter, and not the Teabaggers, who like guns.

GhostBuggy May 18, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Well, I for one am hoping for "Glitter Man 2012." His policy of dumping glitter on hateful monsters is one I can get behind.

If you know what I mean.

Chet Kincaid May 18, 2011 at 1:32 pm

Haha and everything, but I don't think assault, even in it's mildest, most glittery form, helps anyone's cause. Okay, I'm reporting to the pillory, have at it…

proudgrampa May 18, 2011 at 1:46 pm

Hey, Chet. I agree with you. Much as I think Newt's a douche, this kind of attack is troubling…

WriteyWriterton May 18, 2011 at 4:24 pm

I agree, too, much as I hate to.

OhNoGuy May 18, 2011 at 10:00 pm

Guy throws glitter in the air, gets on Newt and his table (PRIVATE PROPERTY!!!!) and that's assault? Maybe that get's you arrested in wussyville but not where I come from. Where I come from the people I like get shot to death by retards. Want a list?

Extemporanus May 18, 2011 at 1:33 pm

When Newt whispered to the concierge that he wanted to get dumped on by Glitter, I don't think this is what he had in mind.

El Pinche May 18, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Obama is cold shooting blood thirsty international terrorists' faces off with their own AK-47s, meanwhile Newt is getting glittered (and just sitting there like a lump of shit , not even protecting his wife) . Makes for a great campaign ad.

simplyblue7 May 18, 2011 at 2:53 pm

The guy sprinkling Newt with glitter is cute…there, I said it. I know i'm not the only one thinking that.

Buckminster May 18, 2011 at 4:47 pm

Newt, you're doing it wrong.

Buckminster May 18, 2011 at 4:49 pm

Well, I guess it was just too much trouble to smuggle dog poop in the manpurse.

lochnessmonster May 18, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Do those naked porno body scanners detect glitter? If so, Newt should get a portable one to bring with him at these signings. Can't shake his hand until you get your privates looked at.

Sassomatic May 18, 2011 at 7:39 pm

I'm worried that after this Newt will give up on gay men.

OhNoGuy May 18, 2011 at 9:31 pm

Playing the French Horn? Is that what the kids are calling it these days?

OhNoGuy May 18, 2011 at 9:34 pm

His Al Jolson impression would follow. Please don't make me watch. But he might win the SC primary if it was broadcast enough.

OhNoGuy May 18, 2011 at 9:40 pm

At any speed, sharp enough to cut a bitch.

Negropolis May 19, 2011 at 4:02 am

You know of an even more cost-effective way to be shiny? Bacon-drippings. Plus, you end up smelly like delicious bacon. I call it Eau de Porcine.

Negropolis May 19, 2011 at 4:18 am

BTW, I can't get over how Gingrich cynically switched to being a Catholic, cause he thought it'd get him more votes/donors connections.

Dr_pangloss May 19, 2011 at 8:03 am

The buttcancer that pushes the activist out and into the elevator just said one of the most hillarious things in history. Has he even seen a Pride event, many are attended by the closeted members of his caucus and even more by the openly bigotted shouting christian fascists. Funny.

Dr_pangloss May 19, 2011 at 8:11 am

I read "Whaley Barbour" as Wilfred Brimley, which is pretty much the same thing.

NadePaulKuciGravMcKi May 19, 2011 at 9:52 am

Neocon Newt Gingrich is shocked
84% Reject The Official 9-11 Story

[he is still shocked]

Dudleydidwrong May 18, 2011 at 11:53 am

Numbers go up, numbers go down. Downfisting explains the latter.

carlgt1 May 18, 2011 at 3:30 pm

well I notice when early on (ie you just make a post) and it's +1, if you see it go to 0 you know some Breitbart idiot is around

PostApocalypse May 18, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Oh. So you have to pay attention… that just doesn't work for me.

PostApocalypse May 18, 2011 at 5:29 pm

hrmm… so if get a notification that someone is following me, and i go look at their posts and they are conclusively a rightwing fuck, can I assume they are basically just stalking me for the downfist?

I mean, not that I care I guess, but it just seems kind of stupid.

natoslug May 18, 2011 at 5:54 pm

Stupid is what they do best. You gotta go with your strengths.

tessiee May 18, 2011 at 10:38 pm

It's not like they have jobs or friends or anything else to do all day.
