Check-Kiting Swindler Newt Gingrich Says He Is Rocky And Reagan On ‘Newsmax.tv’ (VIDEO)

CALLISTAAAAAAAHumanesque check-kiting shit-pie fraud Newt Gingrich has had an embarrassing day. Where he should have been eating pouty dick Rick Santorum’s brains to garner his fallen opponent’s powers, instead he is busy getting laughed at for bouncing a $500 check for Utah’s ballot filing fee. Newsmax.tv got to EXCLUSIVELY INTERVIEW His Corpulence, but shockingly they did not ask him about this hilarious news. Instead they just let him go on with your typical boilerplate of “drill” and “Etch a Sketch” and “I am Rocky Balboa and Reagan” and “when do my V Lizardoid Queen Consort and I get to go back to Greece.” Well, you could go now, you know. Bet Mitt Romney would even generously pay for the Greyhound tickets!

Pretty much the only thing we heard in this “exclusive interview” (Newt Gingrich is really boring when he is sad) is that making rich people pay the same tax rate as poor people is “punishing them for being successful,” because of course it is. Here, have this sad pathetic thing. Oh for the Newt Gingrich of old, making John King cry.

      But Lois is still a feminist and an intelligent intrepid journalist, he can't rise to her level either. He's more like the Toyman, the most pathetic villain in all Clark's rogues' gallery.

      didn't you know? Gingrich is a genetically engineered ubermench whose genes are the combination or Reagan, Rocky, Truman, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Jesus, Buddha, a lizard, Quetzalcoatl, spiderman, and He-man.

        If I don't have mooseberries, will gooseberries suffice? Raspberries aren't in season yet, and I'd need them for the plum sauce anyway.

    Where he should have been eating pouty dick Rick Santorum’s brains to garner his fallen opponent’s powers.

    That's the kind of meal that will leave you feeling hungrier than before you ate it..

    Don't you mean "slicing Santorum's head off with his 600 year old samurai sword, because THERE! CAN! BE! ONLY! ONE!"

    1. GOPCrusher

      Actually it was a split decision and the white boy won in the second fight. * Cue Rocky theme song *
      USA! USA! USA!

  3. DaRooster

    Don't write checks that your fat, broke, loser ass can't cash…

    (I learned this some years ago… so I quit being fat and a loser)

  4. freakishlywrong

    One wonders, like Dubya, who is delusional and sad enough to pay this fartsack for anything he has to say, to "replenish the ole' coffers".

  5. Goonemeritus

    I think his constituents would respond better if instead of pointing out that making the rich pay more is penalizing the successful he argued that are present system is good because it really screws the poor.

  6. freakishlywrong

    Oh, and Newt bouncing a check to get on the ballot is a screaming metaphor for this whole embarrassing, fucked up, "primary".

  7. ManchuCandidate

    Fattin' up, back on the street
    Did my run, got some diamonds
    Went the distance
    Now I've got more fat on my back
    Just a man and his desire to grift (feebs)

    So many times, it happens too fast
    You trade your sick wife for another
    Don't lose your grip on the delusions of the past
    You must fight just to keep them alive

    It's the Flab of the Gingrich
    It's the thrill of the lie
    Risin' up to the challenge
    Of her expenses
    And the well known loser
    Eats buffets through the night
    And he's hoping we'll all get the
    Flab of the Gingrich

    1. freakishlywrong

      I now have Flab of the Gingrich as an earworm and am singing it aloud. I want to thank you for that.

    making rich people pay the same tax rate as poor people is “punishing them for being successful,”

    EXCUSE ME NEIL BOOOOORTHZFUCFARTZ is telling "them" (they, the PresO – focused – there's – no – Mitt – Romney – we – are – against – not – for – someone people) this is a lie. The middle class already pays the EXACT SAME PERCENTAGE IN CAPITAL GAINS and THE EXACT SAME TAX RATE AS EVERYONE. Did you know we have a flat tax? I did not. But this is what my Rs are yelling at me today. Obama is lying about how poorz don't pay capital gains? So shut up? This is going to be A CRAZY head shaking nonsense campaign this year. CRAZY. I'm kinda looking forward to it?

      1. FakaktaSouth

        Yes, when they sell their (houses? Precious gold? Stocks?) for a higher price, AND they pay the exact same as millionaires on the "Same TAXABLE income" – when they describe what is taxable now, it kinda changes the meaning of the argument, but, words are hard.

    1. BigSkullF*ckingDog

      Did you know you have to pay capital gains tax when you sell plasma? I'm pretty sure that's true and not at all something that I just made up.

      1. sullivanst

        Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society.

        – Oliver Wendell Holmes

        Civilized? Fuck that!

        – Tea Party

    2. ttommyunger

      Neil Boortz? That doughy pantload? You just had to go there, didn't you? Fuck me running, Boortz and Gingrich in the same article! Excuse me while I take three consecutive showers.

  10. Goonemeritus

    BTW $500 to register in Utah is an outrage, what is that like $4.25 for every potential voter?

    1. GunToting[Redacted]

      C'mon, you know that R-Money's crew is cold-registerin' dead Mormons so they can mail in their votes from their home planets.

  11. Callyson

    "My wife is actually working the last three days in New York City"

    Can't wait to see the new baubles she is getting with what's left of Newt's campaign funds.

  12. Oblios_Cap

    Rocky and Reagan? Shit, that's more cartoonish than Rocky and Bullwinkle. Who were actually cool and hung around with moonmen.

    1. JustPixelz

      A clone of army of Newt Gingriches would be pretty harmless. Unless it attacks an all-you-can-cram-down-your-massive-pie-hole buffet.

        Here I thought the Buffett Rule was that some people say that there's a woman to blame; but I know (doo doo doo do do) it's my own damn fault.

  14. Baconzgood

    A "V" reference? I like you Rebecca. You make 80's jokes that help my old school snark.

  15. SexySmurf

    I am Rocky Balboa and Reagan

    To which, Mitt "The Mormon Express" Romney replied, "I must break you!"

  16. OneYieldRegular

    Too bad there are no criminally misleading lending practices from Countrywide on which he might blame having bought a campaign he couldn't afford.

  17. orygoon

    The bounced check fee for him should be "all the other money you can possibly raise, including a week's worth of grocery money", like it is for everyone else.

  18. GemlikeFlame

    OK. Santorum, in a rare apprehension of reality took himself out of the race. Is it too much to ask Newt to do the same and STFU in the bargain?

    Yeah, I know. No. Also.

  19. MadBrahms

    Having loads of cash does not make you "successful". Newt has been Exhibit A on that one, and in his case, the punishment was for being a colossal dick.

  20. SorosBot

    Of course, Rocky was soundly defeated by the black incumbent champion, but Newt's not gonna get to the point of fighting him in the first place.

  21. James Michael Curley

    If Newt is going to Greece by Greyhound, I'm going to Pier 92 to watch it drive off.

  22. James Michael Curley

    Calista had a gig last Sunday in choir of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. This should help Newt pay off those campaign debts.

  23. owhatever

    The elites kicked him in the balls again and now Callista cries for America. And about the warning letter from Tiffany's.

    So, where do you have to go to find someone dumb enough to take a Gingrich check? Fucking Utah, naturally.

  26. rickmaci

    Dear Mr. Gingrich.

    We regret to inform you that your account has been placed on hold due to $4.5 million of unpaid bills reported outstanding against your credit.

    Regards,
    Tiffany's

  27. Schmegeg

    Women kill legs, Newt. Dump the pet store broad, the Tiffany catalogue, any interns on the side. and the miscellaneous airport hotel floozies, and we can talk.

  28. GOPCrusher

    A guy that bounces a 500 dollar check is just the person this country needs to reduce the deficit and bring economic sanity back to America!

  29. Tundra Grifter

    Ole Newt is a lot like Rocky – too many sequels, a story no longer believable, in the public eye well past the sell-by date. Punch drunk, broke and broken down, he wanders the streets in a pathetic attempt to hang on to some shread of relevance and interest.

    "Humanesque check-kiting shit-pie fraud"

    I don't know if some of the late, great Ken Layne has rubbed off on you, but I love it! More, more, please!!!!!

  31. BornInATrailer

    Except Rocky is a smart person's idea of what a dumb person sounds like and Ronnie didn't leave his wife when she got cancer.

    Other than that, metaphors are solid (discipline).

  32. Antispandex

    "…that making rich people pay the same tax rate as poor people is “punishing them for being successful,” because of course it is."

    Of course that causes one to infer that the present state of things punishes the poor for not being as successful as the rich. Something I am sure the newt, and his base, feel just peachy about! So, you see, it would be pointless and wrong to spread the suffering to the better people. Paris Hilton would be all depressed if she didn't get some new shoes…so she could create more jobs. See?

  33. DahBoner

    How high is Newt?

    Newts SO HIGH that NASA just called and told him the Jerk Store on the fucking Moon just ran out of him…
