Gingrich Makes Sad, Cheap Campaign Ad to Prove He Needs Money

  tearjerkers

It's like looking at a hungry orphan.

Vainglorious turd blossom Newt Gingrich is running out of wealthy dupes to write him checks allowing him to prolong his hilariously doomed book-tour candidacy, so he is out with a tragic new campaign ad, which as one can see from the screen grab mostly features Newt begging for treats like a dazed zoo seal performing his one trick “standing around seeming visionary” for Callista’s smartphone camera. Humiliating video after the jump!

We did not watch past the first fourteen seconds of this, so it’s possible he announces he is dropping out of the race at the end, or maybe it even has some images of him swapping spit with his new mistress, Rick Perry. Let us know if that is the case.

Will a cheap, poorly edited ad help Newt Gingrich win the race? “Mr. Gingrich has put little effort into building a network of fund-raisers, focusing instead on the debates,” rules the New York Times. So NO, the end. [YouTube/New York Times]

        Once he's president, he can order the CDC to surreptitiously give her some terminal disease and then cash out and marry some 25-year-old president-groupie.

    1. BornInATrailer

      Sadly, she secretly already sold her whore diamonds to fund his presidential ambitions.

      And he secretly(?) sold off his integrity to acquire a Tiffany's charge account for those diamonds.

      Gift of the Magi, turd blossom edition.

    Oh I've seen this before… He decides to take his talents to South Beach (were the grifting is good this time of year… or so I hear)

        1. Chillwillard

          It's a stupid joke I heard from one of those annoying "Mexican" comedians (Goerge Lopez, I think). It basically implies that Mexicans drive POS cars that die all the time, so imagine what it would be like to be the only set of jumper cables when 80 cars need to be jump-started.

          Learned my lesson and I'm never using that joke again…

    1. OkieDokieDog

      ot, Suds, but every time I see you, I always want to ask if you have a bull terrorist? I am a bt aficionado. Proud owner of my 3rd bully. All mine have been older dogs (6,5 & 11) that needed to be re-homed. Alas, the other 2 are now in doggy heaven, but still in my heart.

      1. SudsMcKenzie

        Nope, I live by the Ann Richards philosophy of not having anything at home I cant walk away from for weeks. However, I do take care of a beagle and a giant AK dog thing for family members.

        1. OkieDokieDog

          Ha! I can understand that. Dogs are pretty much like kids, you can't leave some of them unattended for 5 minutes or they're causing some kind of trouble.

          I live by the Mordecai Siegal rule: Acquiring a dog may be the only opportunity a human ever has to choose a relative.

          And since I have a family of Baptist GOPers, I like my dogs way better.

  2. Schmannnity

    That's some editing: you get on the ferry to the Statue of Liberty and land at the Washington Monument.

    1. Tundra Grifter

      It's like the car chase in Steve McQueen's "Bullitt." Go up the hill on one side of San Francisco, come down across town in another.

    2. Biel_ze_Bubba

      I think I saw Air Force One in there somewhere … he must have snuck a ride (in the back, natch.)

      1. MrFizzy

        can you imagine if he caught fire – it would be like one of those tire dumps that burns for years, putting off stinking black smoke

    1. Negropolis

      Hey, if Sheldon Adelson couldn't get him to do it (physically) for millions of dollars, I'm not sure how much of a chance you have, but knock yourself out.

  3. Callyson

    The shot by the river…at first I thought Gingrinch was making a reference to drowning, but no one with his carriage would ever drown.

  4. KeepFnThatChicken

    Already seeing this trend to encourage Newtie to hock some rock, I really hate to say this, but he won't get much on his used bling.

    That said, I would love to know that his campaign was kept alive by a generous contribution from Little Caesar Gold & Pawn.

  5. Spurning Beer

    He could give his campaign a refund for that mailing list. He could do some consulting work as a clinical-forensic-economic historian. Or he could write another book.

    When life hands you lemons, write a book about lemons, Newt.

  6. Fukui_sanYesOta

    we will decisively repudiate an 80-year drift to the left: a drift in our news rooms, a drift in our collleges and universities, a drift with our judges, and a drift among elected politicians.

    Pop quiz! Which traumatic event happened eighty years ago? An event only recently matched by policies put in place since St Reagan with help from GWB?

    That's right! It was the last time Chris Christie missed a meal.

    1. Mahousu

      Wait, turning back the clock 80 years might get rid of FDR, Social Security, the Federal Reserve, the repeal of Prohibition, and so on, but what about Woodrow Wilson? I thought he was supposed to be the true evil mastermind.

    2. Biel_ze_Bubba

      You'd think that after EIGHTY FUCKING YEARS, people would get used to the new status quo, and just take it from here. Does this cretin actually think his great-grandparents had it better?

      1. Fukui_sanYesOta

        What, you mean rampant corporate corruption, an industrialist class and an unprotected class of indentured povertons? Leading to a depression?

        Yes, he does.

        Of course, there can be no progression in the last eighty years, because the human condition and human thought is inherently designed to be static and unchanging. That's why I'm sending this post as a telegram.

  7. HelmutNewton

    No wonder he's losing! He sounds like he's bored out of his mind giving that stupid speech.

    "Blah, blah, blah. Libruls. Blah, blah, blah. Class warfare. Blah, blah, blah. Radical judges."

    At least Paul and Santorum sound occasionally emotional when giving their speeches, though for different reasons (Paul because he's nuts, and Santorum because the thought of making the rest of us as miserable as he is thrills him to no end).

    1. HistoriCat

      Newt can take your hate and your scorn but he is powerless in the face of indifference. It is his kryptonite.

      1. Loaded_Pants

        Maybe that explains that moon base line (or, now I think about it, all of his other lines): "Let me say some crazy shit to see I can get these fuckers to notice me"?

    2. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Santorum must be weeping, after today's queer developments in NJ and WA. And Obama's going to COMMIE CHINA, to talk to the COMMIE NORTH KOREANS. There's going to be much wailing and gnashing of teeth in Wingnuttistan tonight.

  8. Goonemeritus

    In an infinite universe with infinite possibilities there is still no chance for this guy to be anything other than a free agent bomb thrower. At this point he is only taking up space and holding my frothy homeboy down

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      The GOP's owners aren't about to let anybody but Rmoney get the nom, so what are the chances that Newt or Ricky will get the VP slot, as a sop to the conservatard base? You know Mitt's got to pick someone out on the fringe.

    1. Data Exactly

      That's okay. The only part of this video that really matters is the call to 'gimme gimme gimme yous moniez!!!1!!' at the end.

  9. DaRooster

    “Mr. Gingrich has put little effort into building a network of fund-raisers, focusing instead on the debates…”
    "… and with the little money he does have he wants to focus on being a filthy, scum slinging pig."

    1. Data Exactly

      Half of that money goes to scientists and engineers specialized in trajectory of said scum slinging.

  10. Rosie_Scenario

    Poor Newt, his profile is even worse than full face, and that's a mighty full face. If we send him money, will he promise to go away?

  11. philpjfry

    Newt is an arrogant bulling cocksucker and soon to be on the street where he and the robot he is "Married" to, belong. Karma is a bitch newt.

    1. sewollef

      I prefer the slogan, "Karma is a newt, bitch!"

      As in: Vote SEWOLLEF 2012 — Karma is a newt, bitch!

      I don't know why.

  12. Baconzgood

    Hey Newt, since you're on the Staten Island ferry, can you show me your imitation of Spalding Gray?

    1. nounverb911

      “I knew I couldn’t live in America and I wasn’t ready to move to Europe, so I moved to an island off the coast of America — New York City.”
      –Spalding Gray

  13. CapnFatback

    Kirsten, you should have kept watching! At the video's end he announces that he's dumping Callista for the "swarthy vixen" whose ass he's grabbing @ :31.

  14. Come here a minute

    Newt would have had a chance at the nomination if only the Republican party had scheduled more debates!

      1. orygoon

        Awesome! (The Spare looks over at this. "I see you're using the internet wisely". Me: "I think a cute puppy video should be required viewing, every day." The Spare: "I still don't think you're going to counterbalance the porn.")

  15. Mahousu

    For a second there, I thought the screen grab was from his cruise last year. Poor Newt, that was probably the last time he was truly happy. If only he hadn't embarked on this humiliating, self-destructive course, he could be cruising still. On, say, the Costa Concordia.

  16. YouBetcha

    That's what you get for marrying a low paid staffer, Newtie. Shoulda learned from McCain and nabbed an heiress.

  17. SayItWithWookies

    Look, it's another lazy, overpaid elitist mired in the consequences of his own fuckups and looking for a handout from hardworking Americans. If Newt Gingrich were here, he'd give that sorry bastard who apparently never grew up with a work ethic a mop and tell him to start learning a valuable lesson.

  18. JustPixelz

    "… the most important election since 1860…"

    He says that about all the elections.

    As an intriguing historical parallel, in 1860 Lincoln was running as a Republican. (Yeah, they don't make 'em like they used to.) The Democrats disparaged him as an inexperienced rube full of radical ideas, like not extending slavery beyond the South. Meanwhile the Democrats couldn't decide whether to go all-in on slavery (the "original intent of the Constitution" wing) or the comparatively moderate wing that wanted to win the election. So they split and ran two candidates. There was also a candidate for the die-hard Whigs.

    Of course, Lincoln won. The South seceded. War broke out. The South lost and put their loser flag on bumper stickers.

    Also, there are still some die-hard Whigs.

    1. sewollef

      You missed the part where the south replaced slavery with indentured servitude, where local police "arrested" blacks for the loudness of their shirts and as incarcerated prisoners, sold their labor to willing plantations.

      Win, win. The north turned a blind eye and pretended they ended slavery and the south pretended they never lost.

  19. Eve8Apples

    For a guy who likes to talk about free markets and the beauty of Capitalism, he sure has a tough time finding a profitable line of work. If it weren't for his sugar daddies, he would have been at the soup kitchen feasting on hobo beans along time ago.

  20. Wilcoxyz

    It's a sad day in Merikuh when an adultering fourth-tier historian can't find a casino mogul to fund endless attacks on a successful Mormon for being in the wrong party after giving people access to health care.

    1. Data Exactly

      The 51st State of the Moon is only fully visible maybe a week out of every month. When the state's not visible, we'll let them worry about themselves. That'll be the ticket!

  21. Dudleydidwrong

    Tough being a professor when not even Liberty or Bob Jones universities want you. See if Kaplan has any opening for an unemployed edu-whore.

  22. fitley

    Newt's going to be set adrift by Calista if he doesn't come up with some new diamonds pronto. This begging shit ain't cutting it with "The Helmet".

      1. Rotundo_

        That would be the executive class abuse option, you get a plumber's helper if your just one of the ordinary folk.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Near as I can tell, they didn't let him land. (Liberty Island is a national park, and Staten Island is basically Pennsyltucky North.)

  23. L188188

    The Statue of Liberty is thinking "I hope that dipshit doesn't come over by me and tip over my island."

  24. DemonicRage

    I love the snear at European Socialism. If Hopey wins again, could New York please be renamed New Monaco?

      1. Biel_ze_Bubba

        The way real estate is going, "New Monaco" might be pretty damned appropriate, at least for Manhattan.

  25. JackObin

    I don't know if he needs money, but the boy definitely needs to lose weight and gain manhood. He is everything wrong with the American male in microcosm.

  26. valthemus

    How could Newt be running out of money? I just look at him and I want to throw money… like he was a doughy, pasty Chippendales dancer with anger management issues, no physical grace and a bunch of porno mags stuffed down his pants.

  27. elburritodeluxe

    Is that a bunch of Muslims eyeing our Lady Liberty?? Don't let them cross the harbor and open an Islamic Center at Ground Zero, Newt!

  28. Negropolis

    Yo, Newt. Imma let you finish, but Lebron did the best (read: the worst) "The Decision" ever.

    Kirsten, you messed up this official title. It's "jewelry piglet"; don't you remember?

  29. jgalleg4

    Really Newt? Did you basically just try to compare yourself to Abraham Lincoln with the whole Election of 1860 bit?

  30. Lazy Media

    Hahaha! Newt is too poor to afford the Circle Line Ferry TO the statue of Liberty, so he had to take the free Staten Island ferry PAST it. Then he went to Staten Island and was eaten by cannibals, the end.

  31. gurukalehuru

    I object to the use of the phrase turd blossom to describe Newton Gingrich. There is only one Turd Blossom. (after all, the name was bestowed by a president) Perhaps Poop Petal or Flower of Santorum might do.
