Oh come on, Newt was just getting high with Ringo Starr.A long time ago, when amoral sperm whale Newt Gingrich was simultaneously banging another extramarital bimbo and prosecuting Bill Clinton for an extramarital sexytime, Newt was also deeply in love with Palestinian heartthrob Yasser Arafat.

In this newly rediscovered Facebook iPhone photo from the 1990s, Newt is seen tenderly holding Arafat’s hands and (we’re pretty sure) trying in vain to slip a Tiffany silver whore ring on Arafat’s pinky– Gingrich never goes anywhere without a pocket full of layaway Tiffany silver whore rings, in case he meets anybody he wants to suck him off while he’s married to someone else.

But Arafat, being a man of some convictions and standards, said no to the pear-shaped American hair bear. And ever since, Gingrich has been tearfully insisting that the entire Palestinian nation doesn’t exist, because it is dead to him now. (Also, Newt Gingrich is a wingnut shit-for-brains who would literally level the United States with nuclear bombs if Israel and/or Iowa told him to.) [The Economist]

    Gotta admit. They do make a cute couple.

  • Dashboard Buddha

    When I was but a wee bairn, I had an imaginary friend named Alfie. I treated it pretty well. No pictures exist, unfortunately. I just hope that Newt treats his imaginary friends well.

  • TeaNuts

    Enough with the foreplay, kiss him already! Than go pick out something nice for him at Lowe's.

  • i've long held the same opinion regarding the legendary "compassionate conservative"

  • horsedreamer_1

    Does this mean Newt does or does not have AIDS?

    (I always was surprised the stories about Arafat's love of the menfolk never got traction on Wonkette.)

    • Dashboard Buddha

      I dunno…just by looking at the sites in the google search, I can maybe understand why

      • horsedreamer_1

        The story was promulgated by a defector from the Romanian Securitatea. That's all I know. Heard about it from a friend from my Peace Corps stint in Romania, after he had read from the defector as part of a graduate school curriculum (that followed my friend's own time in PC-Ro).

      • Loaded_Pants

        Thats the picture of sessy right there. I'm off to fap now!

  • SorosBot

    I believe Newt Gingrich is an invented person who doesn't really exist.

    • Invented people are people, my friend.

      The most important invented person in Newt's life is Callista. Amalgamated Robotics has many valuable patents on her almost life-like appearance.

      Newt is an invented person. LIke the Pillsbury Doughboy. Exactly like the Pillsbury Doughboy.

    Arafat is definitely the better looking of the two.

      Even now.

    • tessiee

      In defiance to all the principles of logic and mathematics, neither one of them is the better looking of the two.

    I smell a Manchurian Candidate, how do we know he’s not a sleeper agent. The whole adoption thing might just be a cover for his radical birth parents.

    • Numbat_Dundee

      If they ever introduce democracy to Manchuria the voters will have a hard time deciding who to vote for,

    • Loaded_Pants

      What does a Manchurian Candidate smell like? If it's Newty, probably flatulence and Calista's post-blow job breath.

    If you or your people want to be written into history, well, that involves strategic consulting worth about $25K-$30K per month on retainer. Or $1.6 million over roughly 8 years.

  • When Newt looks at that photo, he sees himself just standing there with his hand extended and thinks, "what the hell was this photo op even for?".

  • Tommmcattt

    Newt's double-chin has a double-chin in that pic. It's like his cheeks are trying to escape his skull by fleeing downward.


  • JackDempsey1

    Arafat was always, "1,2,3,4, I declare a thumb war" *all-the-time*, which would usually set the peace process back 6 months.

  • owhatever

    "Really? You screwed a camel?"

    "It was an unforgettable experience, Yassir."

    Newt might be on to something here. If those you disagree with or dislike don't exist…poof…problem solved. I, for one, don't think Newt exists.

  • fuflans

    to be fair, arafat DID make him sit in the back of the plane.

  • Barb

    • snackypants

      Snark off: apparently one of Newtron Bomb's weird apocalyptic fascinations is the electromagnetic pulse attack:

      The NY Times also had a good article about this yesterday. Why do I imagine him masturbating to images of mushroom clouds and fallout?

      • jus_wonderin

        Ewwww. Such horrifying imagery. Not the nuclear stuff, just the Newt masturbating thing. Ewwwww.

      • Negligently_Joe

        So we had frontrunning candidate that mined Pokemon for inspirational quotes and SimCity for tax policy? and now we have a frontrunning candidate that mines Call of Duty for defense policy positions?

        Well, on the bright side, we've at least graduated to video games that are rated at voting demographics.

        Also: what video games would Mitt Romney have to steal what policy positions from, in order to finally win the hearts of the Republican base? Any suggestions?

        • snackypants

          Grand Theft Auto?

          • Negligently_Joe

            That would be every Republican's economic policy, basically, wouldn't it?

  • OkieDokieDog

    I guess the only way Newt can mend his broken heart is to bomb the hell outta those invented peoples.
    USA! USA! Holyland!

  • LettucePrey

    Nice try, Wonkette! Arafat was photoshopped into this picture. Newt can prove that he was cheating on wife #49 at the time.

  • Baconzgood

    That guy in the back sure thinks Arafat is dreamy.

    • flamingpdog

      The guy in the back looks like he could give "tanning" tips to John Boner.

  • MOG2410

    All the "intellectual" Repubs here in lower, slower DE LOVE the Newt – so well-spoken, so well-educated, so hard on the poor, a perfect candidate.

  • alzronnie

    Yeah, Arafat fucked Newt but he said it was the worst fuck he ever had. Gingrich's wives have all said the same.

  • Mahousu

    What you libs don't understand is that Gingrich says the Palestinians are an "invented people" because he invented them. Check it out; they're from his alternate-history Civil War novel. (He also invented Thailand while he was at it, by the way.)

    That's why he's so happy to see Arafat – just the pride of an inventor in his newest creation.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      "He also invented Thailand"

      I wonder if he invented the "basket job" too.

      • flamingpdog

        That's a funky thai he's wearing in the picture of him and Arafat.

  • I really hope Newt wins the RNC nomination. He's fun!

    • MzNicky

      It would be enjoyable to watch Barry kick Newt's fat ass down a peg or five in a debate.

  • mavenmaven

    "Newt Gingrich is a wingnut shit-for-brains who would literally level the United States with nuclear bombs if Israel and/or Iowa told him to."

    Your comment suggests he has principle. In reality, Newt just says stuff that he thinks will get him ahead/head.

  • dadanarchist

    trying in vain to slip a Tiffany silver whore ring on Arafat’s pinky

    Actually, I think that they are merely exchanging long protein strands. If you know a simpler way, I would like to hear it.

  • flamingpdog

    … shaking hands and smiling with Mr Arafat. As to how politicians are supposed to handle that interaction given the more unsavoury aspects of Mr Arafat's history, …

    They probably handle it the same way they do when they get caught shaking hands and smiling with Newt.

  • Walkinwiddaking

    Yeah, hard to come off as a "man of the people" when you're carrying a a six figure debt at the jeweler of the uber rich. Then again, do the uber rich shop at Tiffany's?

      Not the uber, probably not the 1%. But a whole lot of noveau and some old money still go there.

    Newt originally picked Ol' Yassar up in the Minneapolis Airport with the old Tap-the-foot under-the- stall- move.

  • RavenRant

    OT, but did anyone else notice that Admiral McRaven, leader of the operation that took out bin Laden, said President Obama, "was really everything the American public would expect from their national leadership. The President was at all times presidential," he says. "I would contend he was the smartest guy in the room. He had leadership skills we'd expect from a guy who had 35 years in the military."

    Spin that, Repugs.

    • Chichikovovich

      McRaven, eh? Hmmmm. And now that I think of it, I don't remember any posts from you in the weeks leading up to May 1, 2011. Busy time, I imagine.

      • RavenRant

        Yes, the name caught my eye. But, no matter what anyone says, we're not the same person. Or even related.

        I am not cut out for military life, being obedience impaired challenged.

    • Negligently_Joe

      I still contend that Admiral McRaven is easily the most badass name in the US Military. I sincerely hope the guy has an eye-patch that he wears, just because.

      • RavenRant

        'McRaven' does have a certain graphic novel flair.

        Does this mean 'RavenRant' is the most badass name on Wonkette? Should it have been McRavenRant? Or RavenMcRant?
