The shait has hit the fan, folks

All of Gingrich's paid staff in Iowa have gotten the hell out. (new window)

And one of the higher level officials is going on record saying that this all stems from Gingrich's decision to go ahead with his cruse to the Greek Isles . (new window)

Please let it be a really entertaining scandal, please let it be a really entertaining scandal.

I wonder if they'll join Perry's campaign, you know, the guy that wants to be President and secede from the union, or Rudy Guilliani, the guy whose own family said they wouldn't vote for him yet he belongs to the "family values" party.

/Good lord the GOP is a bunch of idiots these days.

All the real candidates are sitting this one out, because they know the GOP is morally bankrupt and has nothing to fix the economy with except tie their hands behind their backs and blame Obama.

patrick767: The bizarre looking third wife, as some Farker pointed out awhile back, looks like she's been holding a sneeze in for about eight years for fear that Newt will dump her at the first sign of illness.


Ok, that made me snort.
It makes sense that her picture is the result of years of "Must...Not...Pooooop...."

I don't think Newt believes he can win. He's in it for the money. PACs, super PACs, books, appearances, all that.

vernonFL: They mostly quit loser campaigns at night. Mostly.


LOL

Dusk-You-n-Me: I don't think Newt believes he can win. He's in it for the money. PACs, super PACs, books, appearances, all that.


Problem is that now that he's announced his candiacy, if he uses that PAC money for anything other than a campaign, he's gonna get pounded in the arse by the FEC.
 
2011-06-09 04:07:19 PM

WTF Indeed: I'm no big city political consultant, but I'm guessing it's because there was no money coming in to the campaign so they weren't going to get paid.


That's because he (and his aides) don't know how to raise money.

/yeah...i was part of the whole "Contract with America" thing

I was about to say that I dont understand why taking a cruise was such a big deal until I read that he didnt tell anyone where he was. well good for him.
 
2011-06-09 04:09:16 PM
His campaign was over before it even started anyhow, and even he knew it. It's going to be Romney as the mainstream candidate and Bachmann running as an independent.

RembrandtQEinstein: Sad because Newt is sort of reasonable. He pays lipservice to the jesusbots but I don't think he really believes any of that crap.


Newt Gingrich is the most evil US politician in the past 50 years. He's a lying, cheating, horrible hypocrite who presses ethics and moral issues despite being absolute scum. He literally told his wife after cheating on her that:

"It doesn't matter what I do," "People need to hear what I have to say. There's no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn't matter what I live."

He's like a mythical deity of demagougery. He's one of the worst people to ever be elected any office. He cheated on his wife while she had MS, and then repeatedly lied to the press about what she said. There isn't a hell terrible enough for a lying, hypocritical awful used-car salesman slick bastard politician.

How did he convert to Catholicism after being divorced TWICE and doing in the worst way possible. Don't you have to get that chit annulled or something?

Doesn't the "superPAC" get around all that? I don't know the ins and outs, I just know this isn't Newt's first rodeo. He's been convincing stupid people to send him money for YEARS. He knows how to game the system. This run gives him a lot of visibility and when he drops out he can write another lame book.

I just picked up Newt in my office death pool. Feeling pretty good about it.

No.

SuperPAC means the donations from Corps can be unlimited and all that good stuff.
It doesn't change the rules on how the money can be disbursed.

I hope for the sake of conservative values that Newt Gingrich runs for president. He is the only candidate that shares my deep Christian values of family and faith. When I shook the hand of an Afghanistan vet returning he whispered to me....only Newt. This man can see us through these troublesome times I have no doubt about it.

I think he can attend Catholic church, but he's denied communion, and said to be living in a state of "mortal sin" until he corrects himself.

contrapunctus: karmaceutical: Damn. I do believe we were just robbed of many presidential campaign lols.

Oh, believe me, we are in for a presidential cycle that is going to go down in history as probably the most lulz-tastic in history. Make no mistake about it, Sarah Palin is going to fire all of her cannons at the GOP nomination. The resultant derp soundbytes are going to be legendary. I can't wait.

Through all of it, we can all just sit back and laugh while O tapdances around these savants. His cold and calculating smackdown of the birth certificate controversy was merely a foreshadowing of the things to come. This is going to be the political equivalent of a Harlem Globetrotters game.

Wait and see.

\\Hot.


I will hold you to that. As long as someone relatively reasonable like Perry, Romney or Hunstman gets the nomination, the race will be nowhere near an Obama blowout. Especially if the economy still sucks.

/if Palin wins the nomination, Obama will crush her
//she won't win it (I sincerely hope)

That's nice. If you had any integrity you would never have signed on to work for Newt.

cymbal,

She is 45, but her peer group has +20 years on her. I guess she had to find a way to fit in.

I wonder who Newt is actual farking now?

/I bet she resents him.
 
2011-06-09 04:14:58 PM
Yeah, it's usually not a good sign when employees decide to quite en masse. Doesn't matter what the job is.

lol. holy crap, i didn't know this guy was -actually- a politician, i thought he was just a radio dickwad.

That I don't know. I think SuperPACs just allow businesses to invest more into it and beyond that don't do too much different from a normal pac, but again I"m not 100% on that.

They don't have integrity, it's just that the paychecks bounced.

2011-06-09 04:18:17 PM
Newt was running for the same reason McCain ran; they both have crazed younger wives that wanted to be Nancy Reagan-ish First Ladies.

These guys are just trying to keep the BJ-train rollin'.

How do you 'correct' getting 2 divorces? I thought you can just say some hail marys and ask for forgiveness and all's ok, right?

/farking divine absolution, how does it work?

Perry's reasonable? bwahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.....

Huntsman? Sort of, but his ties to Obama will sink him in the GOP primary land of derp.

Romney? Yeah, he's the probable nominee, but he signed a decent health care plan for Mass. back in 2006 and now he's running away from it as fast as he can. That makes him come off as quite the moron.
