Adult Babies Rick Santorum And Newt Gingrich Almost Joined Forces To Beat Romney But Decided To Throw Tantrums Instead

Oh, Pope Rick Santorum and pumpkin-headed hyena Newt Gingrich almost formed a Unity Ticket to beat eventual nominee and member of the House of Lords Mittens of Romney? But they couldn’t because talks broke down when neither of them would accept the veep spot because both of them had to be president? Well color us shocked — shocked! — that two of the most undeservedly self-regarding men in the universe could not lay down their own egos to save their party from a Romnastrophe. How great would a Sangrich or Gintorum ticket have been? The smegma-lipped moral scold and the undisciplined libertine would have ridden into American history with at least a solid 34 percent of the American electorate behind them, hungry for that frothy mix of Neil Bush and Carrie Nation. Businessweek, would you care to throw us some on-the-record goodness?

Happy Fun Gingrich Offers To Be Human Sacrifice On Donald Trump’s Dumb Teevee Show

Here is a fun marketing fact: Yr. Doktor Zoom lives in Boise, Idaho, which is among the top locations for test-marketing new products in our great nation. Apparently, we have certain demographic characterisitics (doughy, gun-fondling, dog-owning) that are useful predictors of how a new product might sell. It’s sometimes pretty obvious, when for three weeks every convenience store checkstand features some horrifying new variation on an existing product, like Double-Caffeinated Cool Ranch Twix Bars. So here’s a trial balloon that may or may not sail: Newt Gingrich says he’d just love to be on Celebrity Apprentice, aka Donald Trump’s Festival of Fail. Your Wonkette enthusiastically hopes this comes to pass, because it would be Yooge and Beeyootiful. Read more on Happy Fun Gingrich Offers To Be Human Sacrifice On Donald Trump’s Dumb Teevee Show…

Funmeister Newt Gingrich Says GOP Needs To Be A ‘Happy Party’

Hey, GOP sad sacks! Fun-time Newt Gingrich has a nifty idea for you all to become way more popular! Instead of being a bunch of Grumpy Gusses, why not reach out to everyday Americans and “be a happy party”? And if anyone knows how to be happy, it’s the guy who is so averse to unhappiness that when his wife gets cancer, he finds a new gal who’s not such a goddamn bummer!

What Can We Learn From This Horrible Story About Mentally Disabled People In Dungeons?

Gawker brings us the second-most horrifying story of the morning — the other one is also from Gawker, about “Cannibal Cop,” so yeah — about mentally disabled people, with average mental ages of 10, being kept in a Philadelphia dungeon so a cabal of really fine people could steal their disability checks and also make them be prostitution whores. Alleged ringleader Linda Weston [who was joined in the scheme by her daughter, among others] found the victims in different ways; one was her niece and another was taken from a street corner near a mental health facility. All of the victims were malnourished and some had been trapped in the basement for as long as 11 years; the two deaths were the result of starvation and bacterial meningitis. Several of the victims, who Memeger said had the mental capacity of an average 10-year-old child, were also forced into prostitution. All told, the scam netted the alleged abductors $212,000 over ten years. How is it that the easiest way to make an illegitimate 20 grand a year is to IMPRISON PEOPLE IN BASEMENTS? Like, have they ever even seen “Breaking Bad”? Maybe they just enjoyed imprisoning people, and the SSI was just icing on the very sick cake? Maybe most of their real income came from selling “Bless This Torture Den” needlepoint on Etsy? Read more on What Can We Learn From This Horrible Story About Mentally Disabled People In Dungeons?…

Gingrich Sugar-Daddy Took Our Manhood, Say Peons

If there is one thing you will learn from the workplace accident documentary Extract, it is that losing one ball is the sweet spot in any work-injury claim. Lose both, and the jury can’t identify with you, as they themselves would never — could never — be similarly unmanned. Lose neither, and why are they giving you money again? But lose one, and you are still a man, just barely, your masculinity hanging by a delicate thread. But what if you have both nuts extant, but they have been fried beyond redemption by gamma rays from Mars or whatever because some insane billionaire Newt Gingrich backer insists you x-ray his mail and that lead aprons are for pussies? Well, some stupid peons are trying to find out! Read more on Gingrich Sugar-Daddy Took Our Manhood, Say Peons…

Oh How Cute, Fox is Suddenly Worried About “Media Bias” and its Impact on Democracy

Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com Apparently there are “new questions” about the role of the media 2012 race! What kind of questions? Well, the kind Fox Nooz asks, like: why does the media insist on pointing out all the lies that come out of Mitt Romney’s mouth? And: why do they have to call constant attention to the fact that Gingrich is a womanizing scumbag? Yes, those kinds of questions.

Newt Gingrich Still Angling For Job As Governor of Moon

The 2012 election is the collision of many, many smaller issues: Immigrants, and how they’re destroying everything; the disenfranchisement of Poors, due to laziness; that little issue of health care and who gets to blame whom for $700 billion in Medicare cuts. Plus deficits and tax rates and reproductive rights and Freedom and student loans and Sharia law and Libya and Gitmo and income inequality and gay marriage and how single women are whores, just to name a few. There’s a lot of stuff going on in a lot of places. What should we be focusing on? I know! The moooooooon! If some of you Undecideds were feeling pretty ambivalent about all those issues but are super passionate about space travel, the Romney campaign has prepared a brochure for you — they’ve got a whole space plan! One Republican, however, is displeased with the plan: Captain Newton Tiberius Gingrich, he of the famous primary-season promise of an American moon base.

Straight-Faced GOP Mouthpieces: Mitt Romney Has Foreign Policy Experience Because Of All Those Swiss Bank Accounts

When Barack Hussein NObAama ran for president in 2008 with no foreign policy experience (unless you count ACORN as its own brave nation state), our good, kind and decent brethren on the right thought this might be a bad idea. How would this 48-year-old baby ever defeat bin Laden, or Khadafi, or the Soviet Union? Barack balanced out his lack of foreign policy experience with grizzled Old Handsome Joe Biden to appeal to people who cared about foreign policy and also whites. But this still was not good enough for some people! (Shockingly.) Now, Republican nominee Mittens of Romney and Suite Judy Blue Eyes Paul Ryan have a combined zero foreign policy experience. But would you believe that Mitt Romney does have foreign policy experience, and that is because he was in business and had many bank accounts throughout the world? Because that is what conservative Statesmen Newt Gingrich and Tim Pawlenty say. Let us listen in wonder, and awe!

Newt Gingrich: It Is Okay For Mitt Romney To Lie If It Is In A Political Ad, Yeah Sure Why Not?

Does rubber-lipped diamond-humper Newt Gingrich think it is awesome for Mitt Romney to flat-out lie in his advertisement about Obama (not) dropping the welfare-to-work requirements in waivers to the states? Sure it is awesome. It’s a political ad, you can’t expect people to tell the truth when they only have 30 seconds! Did Newt Gingrich feel the same way about whether truth should be optional when it was he who was on the receiving end of Mitt Romney’s fun money? We will give you a guess. Think hard! Think long! Are you ready to learn if you were right? No, not yet? We will wait. Read more on Newt Gingrich: It Is Okay For Mitt Romney To Lie If It Is In A Political Ad, Yeah Sure Why Not?…

Who’s Hanging Out With The Iranian Terrorist Group Now?

Every big- and middle-name Democrat and Republican loves raking in fees to speak to the exiled Iranian Marxist guerilla group MEK, an official member of the State Department’s terrorist group list that also happens to hate the current Iranian regime. This seems pretty illegal, but hey, maybe we just love the Ayatollah and Ahmadinejad too much to see the legality of it all. Now let’s meet an additional two faces who’ve been providing support to this official terrorist group recently: Newt Gingrich and columnist Clarence Page!

Here Is Photo Proof That Newt Gingrich Is Finally President of Space

Well, Newt Gingrich has at last achieved his lifelong goal of conquering the void of empty space. Just look at him out there, the brave emperor of a vast, dark and lonely realm surrounded by his only true companions, some insane person in a scary-looking costume and an elephant. We just knew you could do it, Newt. We just knew. [Buzzfeed] Read more on Here Is Photo Proof That Newt Gingrich Is Finally President of Space…

Newt Gingrich Is All Out Of Whore Diamonds

We have had a lot of fun over the years pointing and laughing at Ol’ Yeller, Newt Gingrich. One of the things we have liked best is laughing about how very bad he is with money, because of how he is a common hustler who rips off everyone within a 26,000-mile radius. But today, Reuters points us to a tragic tale: not only is Newtypie’s campaign 80 trillion dollars in debt or whatever, but his personal fortune — his “empire” pulled in $110 million over the past decade — welp, that’s gone too and everyone is as bankrupt as Donald Trump. OH NOEZ! The Gingrich Group bankruptcy proceedings spotlight the remarkable reversal of fortune of the half-dozen organizations associated with Gingrich. The presidential contender recently ended his campaign $4.8 million in debt. A political nonprofit he headed, American Solutions for Winning the Future, which raised $52 million between its founding in 2007 and its dissolution last July, also ended in debt. That would buy so very many whore diamonds. Have these people no priorities? Let us read some more eye-goggling numbers please, Reuters, perhaps with a bonus aside about what a liar the entire right wing is about their stupid keening over NAZI SOSHULIST MANDATES!

Daily Caller Explains James O’Keefe’s Sting Of ‘Democrat-Friendly’ Vote Fraud By GOP Kids Voting GOP

James O’Keefe has a new video, you guys, and it is super-exciting because it shows how those horrible Ivy Tower LIEBERALS at the University of North Carolina didn’t fink on a “Democrat-friendly election fraud scheme” of a kid voting for both Romney and Gingrich! Huh? What it says, dudes. The first part of the video is about foreign-born people registering to vote but then getting out of jury duty by saying they weren’t citizens. Are they? It is impossible to tell (unless James O’Keefe actually wanted to go dig through microfilm, and that is not something an investigative journalist does)! Anyway, here is the more befuddling part of the befuddling video: GOP kids bragging about double-voting GOP, which is obviously Democrat election fraud, DUH.

Newt Gingrich Drops Out To Spend More Time With His Creditors

Newt Gingrich was just on the teevee talking about the moon, jobs, Kaiser Wilhelm, Mitt Romney, Barack Obama, cocaine and methamphetamine, amnesia, his grandchildren, Ellis the Elephant, dropping out of the Republican presidential nominating contest, and everything else he has ever thought about for half-a-second since 1968. He has had a marvelous run. What now? Aside from harassing college students nationwide, Newt will be spending some lovely time with his creditors, whom he owes millions of dollars.

Newt Gingrich Sends Bizarre Message from Outer Space of His Mind

Space commander Newt Gingrich has issued a special sad secret video communique from space with terrifying news from the future: “I want to take this opportunity to give you an insider advance notice that…” — WHAT IS IT, WE HATE SUSPENSE — “…on Wednesday, I’ll be officially suspending the campaign.” Oh no, that is terrible. We were praying for “massive comets are hurtling toward Earth,” to avoid the rest of the general election season. But commander, some have noticed that the flag displayed in your message as seen in the screen grab above is on the wrong side, according to Title 36 of the United States Code that specifies that flags hanging from a staff must be on the “speaker’s right as he faces the audience.” WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

Oh Yeah, Apparently Newt Gingrich Dropped Out of The Race Today?

Just kidding, no he hasn’t. The Internet merely ran one of its “Newt Gingrich will suspend his campaign any day now” stories that it has run once every other week since February. Even these were starting to dwindle due to a pressing lack of media interest, so a Newt spokesman had to go and swear oaths before the reporters that it really will be happening within a week or so, just as soon as America has had an appropriate amount of days to grieve and put in their request slips for time off to hear his triumphant near-victory speech. Then, yes, then. Read more on Oh Yeah, Apparently Newt Gingrich Dropped Out of The Race Today?…

Newt Gingrich Will Reassess His Plan To Declare Himself American Emperor

Newt, Newt, our hero Newt, what are you talking about? Weren’t we supposed to ride this train all the way to Tampa and fuck shit up at the convention? Now you’re saying you’re going to reassess the campaign after tonight. Weak, Newt. The Newt of ’78-’94 wouldn’t have caved like this. That Newt would’ve castrated Mitt Romney with a T-Rex skull, on pay-per-view. And then he would’ve gotten thrown out of the speakership, but still… would’ve been awesome.

Gingrich Plumps For Anti-Gay Amendment: Marriage Between A Man And A Women Until She Gets Sick

Sup North Carolina? Yer gettin’ ready to vote on Amendment 1, which bans gay marriage (which is already banned) in addition to straight and gay civil unions and domestic partnerships? Sounds like a fun amendment! Good job, you guys, way to stick it to … well, your 200,000 straight citizens who are in domestic partnerships already, in addition to the 25,000 or something godless sodomites. Very modern-ages of you guys! Not at all sad and medieval! Too bad that lie-beral Supreme Court outlawed outlawing sodomy itself in Lawrence, you could put those icky sexers in jail, like in Ye Olde Oscar Wilde Days! But do other people have opinions about your Amendment 1, like maybe Newt Gingrich? We would really like to hear what Newt Gingrich thinks before we totally make up our minds that Amendment 1 is the best, most important Amendment and one that we should send $5 to, and that it is filled with laughter and love and hope for The Children, who I believe are the Future! Oh good, Newt Gingrich DOES have an opinion! He thinks marriage is between a man and a woman! But we feel like there is something important about that statement, that it maybe leaves something out. We wish we could remember what that important something might be. Read more on Gingrich Plumps For Anti-Gay Amendment: Marriage Between A Man And A Women Until She Gets Sick…

Newt Gingrich Fails Even To Get .Com Address For ‘ObamaFailures.net’

Gypsy grifter Newt Gingrich is not done having Big Ideas, like his latest, putting up a MEAN website about one President Disgraceful, in which Ol’ Bamz over there looks down with sadness on his miserable failure of a presidency. Like this nifty chart (pictured!), which shows how once, for about a week, gas, like freedom, cost a buck oh five, mostly because nobody was driving to work at their factory jobs because they had no jobs and no factories. And now that gas is the same as it pretty much has been (excepting that one flukey height-of-the-recession week), Newton is explaining to everybody that blahblahblah nobody cares it is all childish make-believe nonsense.

MN GOP Takes Fiscal Conservatism To Logical Conclusion, Is Evicted For Not Paying Rent

One thing we at Wonkette HQ don’t “get” is the inescapable conclusion in American life that being “fiscally conservative” is somehow synonymous with being “fiscally prudent.” Case in point numero one: deadbeat Tea Party Congressman Joe Walsh, who is so fiscally conservative he lives in his office and refuses to pay child support! Case in point numero zwei: check-kiting gypsy Newt Gingrich buying his special lady so many whore diamonds and then stiffing that poor Las Vegas businessman (and everyone else) on his bills. Case in point all of the others: cutting taxes in the middle of two wars and conducting them off-book; threatening to default on our national debt by not raising the debt ceiling; and pretty much every other thing they have done since maybe Eisenhower. But the Minnesota GOP is something special in this regard: they are being evicted from their headquarters for owing almost $100 large in back rent!

Newt Gingrich Makes World’s Actual Most Pathetic Campaign Ad

Leading small-animal snuff film auteur Herman Cain has taken a brief respite from murdering rabbits to bring us this late-breaking newsflash that Newt Gingrich is now too awful to keep company with people who murder rabbits: “I even endorsed Newt Gingrich at one point because I thought that he had a shot. Well, not now. He doesn’t have a shot,” said Cain. What changed his mind? Well for one thing, Herman is now a serious filmmaker, and sweet loving Jesus has anyone seen Newt’s latest campaign video? The top photo is a salacious hint. Watch the dramedy unfold, after the jump! Read more on Newt Gingrich Makes World’s Actual Most Pathetic Campaign Ad…
