Newt Gingrich Wins New GOP Poll By Coming In Second Place

Who has weirder pajamas than Newt Gingrich?Herman Cain is the big loser of a new GOP primary poll that he won, because he is an awful inarticulate sex creep slob who got only 18% support, which is a few percentage points less than the last time one of these dumb polls came out six seconds ago, so it is Over For Him. Time to scroll down the poll results to find a new “winner” liked by fewer than 1 in 5 Republicans for the media to obsessively discuss! Hm… Mitt Romney came in second with 15%, but nope, he is still irredeemably boring. But, wait, oh look, Newt Gingrich actually tied with Mittens! So Newt Gingrich is your new “It” turd in the GOP primary field this week, Newt the cancerous wife-divorcing proven serial cheater sex fiend, because Herman Cain now has a “woman voter support problem.”

From the CBS News poll:

Cain has lost support among women since late October. Then, he led among women, garnering 28 percent of their support. Now, his support among women is just 15 percent. He has also lost ground with conservatives, from 30 percent to 23 percent now.

[…]

Among women, 38 percent say they are less likely to support Cain because of the allegations against him. Fifty-seven percent say that will make no difference in their vote. Just 23 percent of men say they are less likely to vote for Cain because of the harassment allegations.

All the assault/harassment allegations so far against Cain are from the late nineties, i.e. more or less concurrent with the time when Newt Gingrich got busy behind his wife’s back schtupping the boggle-eyed congressional staffer who is now his wife, which means Newt Gingrich is laughing his ass off right now.

    "Cain has lost support among women since late October."
    He's also running around saying, "The way to beat Barack Obama is with a Cain"
    He also whips out his dick and tells job applicants that it's a "candy cain"

    • Dr_Zoidberg

      I saw that 'Beat him with a Cain' thing earlier today, and thought it was a joke. Wow, the GOP just wallows in insensitivity.

    • WhatTheHeck

      Hi, my name's Cain. Are you willing and able?

      • bagofmice

        That seems like you are asking for consent.

        • Fare la Volpe

          Consent makes Sperman's boner wilt.

    • OneYieldRegular

      I'm waiting for an anti-Cain commercial that's like those particularly effective anti-smoking ads. The voice-over could read, "Since late October, Cain has lost support among women" just as the screen shows Mark Block's cigarette starting to go limp.

  • GuanoFaucet

    In celebration, Newt will get himself a new wife.

    • HistoriCat

      I feel bad for Callista – I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone.

      • Not_So_Much

        Or worse, Newt.

    • Negropolis

      I don't know. I think Newt has run out of his nine lives. Callistra strikes me a gal willing and able to cut a bitch, physically and in the wallet.

      • NorthStarSpanx

        I think Newt fans think of Callista as Yoko Ono, with Tiffany's taste.

  • prommie

    Newt will be ruined if this play turns out to be a hit.

    • Chichikovovich

      Just wait until you see the show-stopper he's got planned for the second act. He's learned his lesson from the experience of Bialestock and Bloom.

      You know who else was the star in a fictional play-within-a-play that was designed to fail?

  • SorosBot

    Newty's not ready for this, he was just trying to sell a few more of his books.

    • MOG2410

      Surprise – you're the Preznit! Now get to work.

    • LetUsBray

      Hey, Cain was just trying to boost his speaking fee. Grifting is risky work.

  • rambone

    I bet none of Mitt's wives played this hard to get before taking the plunge.

  • GeneralTapioca

    They're both protecting good old fun (read as: harassment) and marriage from teh gays..

  • Dr_Zoidberg

    Oh, the tales of Newt's infidelities that would come out are worth the price of admission alone. I was worried a bit about Obama's chances, but he will wipe the floor with any of these losers.

    • WootInTarnation

      Yer, I see your point. But… out of all of those clowns who are even capable of staying on message, Newt's the only one that has the most hard-scrabble political experience behind him. I do believe that he could actually debate Obama. It would be an ugly show, but he's not a complete mouth-breather: he's just cynical, slimy and evil.

      This worries me. He is one cynical, cold, old bastard of a snake politician. But he's a professional politician, as opposed to most of his opponents.

      When the shit really goes down and the race thins, I fear that Newt's infidelities won't hold voters back from choosing him over a 1800's long-john wearer and, uh, and, uh… Shoot, I've run out of viable Republican candidates.

      And so has their party. And it's not even spring yet. If Newt's the last man standing, I have a feeling that even the "moral" Xtians will vote for him.

      Because, let's break it down here: he's cheated on numerous wives and girlfriends, he's divorced his dying "wife through thick and thin" (Yay! Sanctity of sanctimonious haterosexual marriage) and he's probably performed some very bad anal on an aide right in his wife's hospital room as she groans in pain. (Because you know that he's the kind of dude who'll steal the pain meds off a cancer patient.)

      So, when the rubber hits the road, Newt's transgressions ain't gonna mean shit. The "moral lapses" on his part are simply crimes committed against his property: his wives, his girlfriends, his staff. They're HIS PROPERTY.

      Even the dullest among his potential supporters can get behind that idea. In fact, Newt is very lucky, because the child-rearing/torture manuals and similar Xtian manuals for training up wives are tremendously popular right now. These books promise to deliver to the father an army of wife and kids who are have been transformed through violence into cowering, damaged, docile soldiers whose own opinions and the courage to speak them have been literally beat out of them. This allows the courageous Xtian father to mobilize his army.

      Judging from the number of glowing, uninventive, but passionate reviews of these books on Amazon, this vision of the upright Xtian family is gaining popularity through the promotion and dissemination of "Talking Points" to minions who are encouraged to make their own homes into little Tsar-worshipping barracks.

      With this worldview, it's easy to see voters excusing Newt's behavior because his wife and children were uppity and rebellious. So while Newt may have failed to crush them into submission, his sins are minor and hardly of his making.

      The dying wife is the sinner. If she'd been obedient, well then, God might not have smitten her. Newt's just the fall-guy in all those stories. His women and children betrayed him to the beast. He can't be held responsible for seeking out another (three, four, 17 new women) with whom he can do his Xtain duty and re-populate the country before the browns take over and further revolutionize American cuisine.

  • Callyson

    1% of the poll respondents say they support "No One." Now, there's a 1% I can support.

  • Ducksworthy

    Those GOP men are jealous of Herman's style (and/or fantasizing about certain parts of his anatomy.)

    • chicken_thief

      Ya. Cause no journalist would think of interviewing Glenn Rice to get his take on how sweet that pussy was.

      • HistoriCat

        I don't think the world will get too excited by, "yeah, I banged some chick when I was in Alaska but I don't remember her name or what she looked like. I guess it could have been her."

        • MOG2410

          But she was wearing glasses and wouldn't shut up the whole time.

      • Not_So_Much

          So, Sully bait?

      • WootInTarnation

        I'm kinda surprised that interview doens't already exist.

        Aside from the large population of people who would welcome any tactic that will ensure her disappearance, there are a lot of dudes who still want to throw her a hate-fuck or a str8-up MILF fuck. Seems like a win-win for whatever magazine/blog wants to take that one on.

        Sweet pussy? I'm thinking garage cunt/moose trap. Back 'er in there Glenn. But that's just me and my slutdar.

    • Banelm

      Its too late to get into the early primaries. Even against this crappy field, it would be almost impossible to win the nomination without even competing in the first leg. Believe it or not, the nominee will be one of these twits!

  • Nesnora

    Sorry Herman, I think Mittens and Newt made it clear what voters want: Multiple wives in both theory and practice.

    • Negropolis

      Also. White skin. Also.

  • Tundra Grifter

    How many Twitter followers does Ole Newt still have?

    And – a bit more to the point – who the Hell cares?

    I wrote this here before. Once your first name becomes "Former" they might as well stick the fork into ya. You're done.

    • Troglodeity

      Newt has just a few more Twitter followers than Cain has sexual harassment accusers. On the other hand, Cain has just a few more accusers than Newt has ex-wives, so it's pretty much a wash.

  • http://ifthethunderdontgetya.blogspot.com/ ifthethunderdontgetya

    That's right, Newticles is the G.O.P.'s feminist candidate.

    • Mahousu

      Onizuka may be an idiot, but he's far too capable an idiot for today's GOP.

      • poncho_pilot

        i'd vote for Onizuka over Gingrich any day.

      • poncho_pilot

        the previous statement doesn't really say much for Onizuka, though, because i'd vote for a pile oily rags over Gingrich.

        • LetUsBray

          Pile Of Oily Rags will likely be the Rethug front-runner by mid-December.

    • Fare la Volpe

      I was JUST reading my GTO collection the other day. This is why I love Wonkette <3

  • Tommmcattt

    You know they're hurting when the only choice they have left is perennial loser and wan corporate puppet Newt Gingrich. It's precisely like choosing between eating a pile of shit and a dead rat. You pick the shit, because hey, at least shit doesn't have fleas.

    Ah, we need to coin a term that combines schadenfreude and serendipity, because that is what I am feeling upon finding out this morning that all they have left is ol' Also-Ran Newtie.

    • prommie

      I'm going with rat.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        I'm in favor of beating the crap out of whoever presented me with the choice.

    • MOG2410

      schadendippity?

      • Fare la Volpe

        Serenfreude just rolls off the tongue.

    • Negropolis

      I take it you never saw Fear Factor? I'd so choose the rat. At least it's meat. I can overlook the fleas. I'd just think of them as dark-colored sprinkles on a sundae, or peppercorns.

  • Ruhe

    Don't we have the technology to get past these ridiculous polls? I'm thinking that the Nielsen Co. should be able by now to plant some sort of device directly in the brain of conservative voters so as to measure their ephemeral support for one candidate or another. Given the average intelligence of Republican Primary voters it feels like these polls, no matter how scientifically rigorous, have no more predictive value than choices made by a captive octopus.

    • finallyhappy

      I know you are talking about Paul(RIP). Any octopus is probably a lot smarter than GOP candidates- they(the octopuses/octopi) have a very unique brain that we really don't understand yet(and won't – they will have become our overlords by the time we figure it out)

      • SorosBot

        I think the only thing that's stopped the giant octopus from taking over the world is their three-four year lifespan.

        • Nostrildamus

          Meaning they can never consolidate their power in a second term?

    • poncho_pilot

      "I'm thinking that the Nielsen Co. should be able by now to plant some sort of device directly in the brain of conservative voters…"

      i'd suggest the Ceti Eel but their behavior suggests they are hosts already.

      • tessiee

        I… AM… IN… FAVOR… OF… BRAIN… SLUGS.

    • Graham Cracker

      The Neilson company has developed a device that attaches directly to voter's brains and allows Neilson to directly measure their choices. But, for obvious reasons, it doesn't work with Rethuglicans.

      • Ruhe

        No doubt their mistake was to design a device that works with the homo sapien brain as a whole while most Republican brains are by accident or choice reduced to only the reptilian portion.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      The signal-to-noise ratio in Republican brains is way too low for current technologies.

  • McRibzgood

    White harassment in the 90's is more socially acceptable than Black.

    • HistoriCat

      Besides – Newt married his piece of ass. Turning her into a respectable woman redeems him from his other actions.

      OK, now I feel nauseous.

      • McRibzgood

        I've never thought Historicat would say Newt is redeemed of his actions. YOU'VE TURNED INTO ONE OF "THEM". It's a slippery slope and you've passed the event horizon. Might as well get it over with quickly. Buy some truck nuts and nod in agreement while listening to Glenn Beck. I'll lay some flowers on your snark grave.

        • HistoriCat

          Here I am giving you some prime insight in to the Conservatard mind and you say I'm turning into one of them. You are so getting a 5 inch hairball in your shoe.

  • Chichikovovich

    "Cain has lost support among women since late October."

    My theory – only semi-snark. As much as I find it staggering to learn that men do this, I've heard from a huge number of women I trust that this disgusting "grab the back of the head and push" thing really happens a lot. A lot of creepy men have this as part of their standard repertoire. Presumably even a lot of really hard core conservative women have experienced it. I bet that one aspect of the story is a deal-breaker for them. Makes what he did a bit too familiar.

    • Dumbedup

      but..do they say it works?

    • Limeylizzie

      As a former slutty person, I can't even tell you how often I have had that done to me.

      • Geminisunmars

        And it is so subtle and endearing. (gag)(literally)

    • RavenRant

      I think conservative women may well have experienced more harassment. The conservative movement is inherently patriarchal, authoritarian, and sexist. Repressive religions inculcate shame, and people raised in those traditions can feel shame and guilt at any sexual contact, even if they didn't consent to it, making them extremely easy to manipulate. Perfect prey for predators.

      There's plenty of sexism and racism on the left, mostly of the clueless variety. But only the right makes a positive virtue of bigotry.

    • BigDumbRedDog

      This is a good way to get a punch in the nuts. I am speaking as a puncher, not a punchee.

      • Chichikovovich

        No doubt. I expect that anyone who regularly makes this move has known a few nut-punches in the course of their low-rent Casanova career. Presumably they regard it as one of their occupational hazards, as athletes regard bruises and sprained ankles.

  • owhatever

    I borrow this line becuz it's so good: The moral Republicans are switching their support from the serial groper to the serial adulterer.

    I want to read Calista's eventual autobiography on why congressional interns should give blow jobs to their married bosses as a career move toward getting botox, Tiffany bling and one day perhaps becoming first lady of the land.

  • Negropolis

    He may be a sex creep, but inarticulate he is not. In fact, I think his problem is that he is too articulate in getting his offensive points across. Minus his accent ("ecunumy" grates on my ears like no other), no one can never claim to have missed his points or not understood exactly what he was trying to get across. The fucker has never been at a lost for words, and the women he's encountered in his life know that all too well, it seems.

    It is kind of amazing that Cain's troubles with women seem to have brought the attention away from Gingrich's serial adultry. It'll be fun to see that brought back up, and I don't think "I cheated on my wives because I love America **motioning with hands** this much" is going to cut it, this time.

  • carlgt1

    The media keeps saying that Gingrich is liked by some Republicans because he's "brilliant." What they don't understand, the fact that he's "brilliant" is why most Republicans DON'T like him.
