Everybody Hates Newt


We present this clip, not because a Random Voter saying impolite things to a Random Candidate is news, but when the Random Candidate is Newt Gingrich, and the Random Channel is Fox News, well, that’s news.

Enjoy your ride under the bus, Newt.

GOP to Newt: Leave Paul Ryan Alone! [TPM]

It’s like watching idiots on Jeopardy.

Not as much as we hate Mike Lee. Fuck Mike Lee.

@Benedick HRH KFC: I wish Mike Lee would be more of an idiot, but he never does anything egregious enough to bear notice. Mike Lee is a crushing disappointment.

@Benedick HRH KFC: I’m not sure why Newt Bling is news, unless… hold on…

Newt Gingrich, a fiscal conservative? Not when it comes to Tiffany’s.

Ah. Politico broke it.

Well, what the heck. Pass the popcorn.

@nojo: That’s almost what I make in a month!

@Benedick HRH KFC: Frankly, I think America’s more interested in how much Callista spends on her hair.

@nojo: Speaking of hair, Perry wants in:

Political Wire
Sensing a vacuum in the GOP field, Texas Gov. Rick Perry quietly feels out a presidential campaign…

Perry purports to have shot a coyote that was threatening his dog while jogging in Austin, using what I understand was a Ruger LCP .380 cal. pistol. He must have been pretty close since I know from shooting its big brother the Ruger LC9 9 mm that the point of impact vis a vis point of aim changes significantly after 15 yards, like 8-10 ins* and the sights on the LCP are widely regarded as a real weak point of the gun (the three dot sights on the LC9, oth, are very easy to see). Anyway, Ruger or a distributor has released a Rick Perry Coyote Special commemoritivo pistol:


*at ranges of 3-10 yards, however, the LC9 is stunningly accurate with whatever ammo I put through it.

@nojo: Texas. If at first you don’t secede, try try again.

@nojo: I’m guessing the Beauty 2 Go bus doesn’t come cheap.

@Walking Still: If Rick runs, that’s the angle I’m taking.

I’d like to say something witty, but I’m fresh out. free and fair warning, though. Beware of anyone who seeks access to your precious body and mind by showering you with expensive gifts.
