Annals of Newt

 You know that $500,000.00 Tiffany’s line of credit that everyone’s favorite joke of a presidential candidate, Newt Ginrich, spent the last few weeks playing down? Well apparently there’s another Tiffany’s line of credit he totally forgot to mention, and this one was good for a cool million. So gone are the days of Pat Nixon’s “respectable cloth coat.” $30,000 diamond tennis bracelets are what the smartly dressed Republican wife is wearing these days.


The obvious solution to his campaign finance problems is to borrow from Tiffany’s.

In related conserva-grifter news, to absolutely nobody’s surprise Caribou Barbie quits bus tour halfway through.

Those breakfast buffets at Tiffany’s are so damn expensive.

I guess the REAL US America didn’t clap loud enough.

@ManchuCandidate: It’s expensive renting a diamond-encrusted supermodel to serve as a sideboard.

There’s something really fishy going on here. $1,000,000 in unsecured, interest-free debt? This is a fucking valuable thing! Nobody gives that away free.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That:
Newt Gingrich is the most honest, trusted, decent, hardworking, and amazing intellectual of all time.

@ManchuCandidate: And Charles Manson is a beloved Northern California Bodisattava.

I honestly don’t know what the problem is. by the time you’ve ordered some stationery, replaced the strawberry plates the dogs knocked over, picked up some stocking stuffers and a few trinkets for that nice boy at the gym you won’t get much change from $350,000.

And of course they got interest-free terms: Tiffany’s was lobbying Callista when she worked on some mining committee. You’re not expecting her to pay retail?

I’ll bet Calista was unaware of the second line of credit. Wonder who Number 4 is?

@redmanlaw: I’m thinking credit line #2 is a washing machine for dirty campaign funds somehow…not sure how the mechanism would work but that is what my intuition is telling me.

Aren’t there one too many “n”s in the title of this post?

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Don’t try to hoist Charles Manson on to NorCal – he was a Los Angeles Superior Court commitment, now hanging out with the high profile inmates in Kern County.

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: Oh, at the California Medical Facility (CMF)? Apparently that place and San Quentin are considered the two nicest prisons in the state system – I suppose it has something to do with the more benign climate than what you’d find in the Central Valley or Imperial County. I would also vote for the fact that Vacaville (a.k.a. “Cow Town” has an impressive factory outlet shopping center and In-N-Out that I try to stop at on my Excremento-to-Ess Eff trips. BTW, this website is oddly useful and a time sink.
