Lizards for Newt!

So we had a mildly clever idea this afternoon to run various aliens (E.T., Bat Boy, Giger’s Alien) over a stock crowd photo that both Newt Gingrich and Teddy Kennedy have seen fit to use on their websites. We started putting it together, and then we lost interest.

Which is just as well, because somebody else out there had more time on their hands, and a better premise.

Only inside the Beltway is Newt, Haley, or Pawlenty (yawn) considered a viable GOP presidential candidate.

I feel incredibly shallow saying this, but I just cannot look at that woman’s face. She looks like she was repeatedly beaten with the ugly stick and applied white paint to her face and bleach to her hair in an attempt to cover up the fugly. I find her viscerally repellent, and in a way that someone who might be more traditionally unattractive (i.e. misaligned/crossed eyes, crooked nose, snaggletooth, etc) doesn’t at all stir in me.

Newt Gingrich personifies the qualities, personal and professional, that make me proud to be a Republican. His leadership will help me grow my church.

@SanFranLefty: I went looking for our post on the subject, but I just couldn’t find it. Me and my clever unsearchable headlines…

ADD: Found it.


Maybe she’s really a reptoid. I could certainly see her unhinging her jaw V-style and devouring a live rodent.

ADD: the not-MSNBC ad agrees – this is what it was giving me:

My gift to you – picture them having sex. “Take my member of the House, bitch!”

Who’s up for a fucking martini beside me?

@redmanlaw: Dude, I’m just waking up over here.

@Nabisco: Dude, I’m just waking up over here.


@SanFranLefty: What’s Gingrich doing with Cindy McCain…that’s who I thought she is. I try not to call other women demeaning names(especially the C-word) or comment on their looks. Somehow it doesn’t seem right for me trash another woman….but damn, I can’t respect a woman who would straddle a bucket of shit like Newt Gingrich.

@SanFranLefty: You’re not shallow, you’re right.
@redmanlaw: Hendricks, please. With a cucumber slice.

@redmanlaw: I only had one shot of vodka left tonight. Cue “wah-waaah” noise.

@blogenfreude: @texrednface: Okay, it’s going to take more than one shot of vodka to get those mental images out of my mind.

She looks like a reptile to me. Not reptilian. Reptile.

@Dodgerblue: Reptiles slither, they don’t straddle.

@SanFranLefty: Better put on your walking shoes, Lefty!

@nojo: And…I had to crank out a layman’s legalistic defense of Why I Should Be Able To Do What I Was Asked To Come Here To Do, appropriations bills and foreign assistance acts notwithstanding.

The two week CL keeps the paycheck coming, but all I really want to know is whether that return ticket has already been paid for or not.

@SanFranLefty: I feel about her exactly the same way you do. “viscerally repellent” is exactly right. That makes her just perfect for ol’ Newt, who is far less appealing than an actual newt.
