Hey Jackie,

how do we encourage more timid souls to try their hand in the political arena?

*blink* *blink*

This woman has bigger balls than I do, to say something like that with a straight face.

Her thrice married father ran on a platform of child labor and moon bases, and she is saying we need more timid souls???
 
2013-07-12 05:24:59 PM  
I'm not going to read a townhall article. Nice try though. I will assume that she is opposed to her dad running for office again, because the stress isn't good for his heart.

Also, I stopped reading as soon as the second sentence. This might be a new record for me. I can't just jump into the derp like that. I can wade into it but this is like a derp bellyflop off the high-dive.

I'll leave you with the Rude Pundit's take, which I think is spot-on:

Truly, there are other, more important things to write about, but the Rude Pundit just couldn't face scribbling another "Man, those Republicans sure are motherfarking, obstructionist, traitor dickheads" post. Let's just let it stand as more or less uncontestably true: Those Republicans sure are motherfarking, obstructionist, traitor dickheads.

Luckily, he came across the latest scrawlings of conservative writer and speaker Jackie Gingrich
Because, see, the point of the https://www.google.com/search?num=100&client=firefox-a&hs=59N&rls=org. mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&q=%22disgraced+former+speaker+of+the+house% 22&oq=%22disgraced+former+speaker+of+the+house%22&gs_l=serp.3..0i30.30 96.7806.0.8193.9.9.0.0.0.2.241.1208.3j4j2.9.0....0...1c.1.19.serp.cUkt c4yjTs4"> called 'disgraced former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich,' right? Right? And that those reasons include farking around on your mom with the woman who became his second wife and then farking around on her?"

Strangely, or not, depending on your level of incredulity, Cushman doesn't mention dear old Dad, who had asked his second wife for an open marriage so he could bang the woman who became his third wife without feeling guilty, and his run for, you know, the presidency of the whole damn country as an example of a "pervert" trying to get back in good electoral graces.

Yes, Republicans continue to be motherfarking, obstructionist, traitor dickheads. And we could easily add "delusional" in there, too.

You made it further than I could - "Donald Trump's tweet Tuesday of this week puts it all in perspective" was all I needed to read.

Oops, let me try quoting the Rude Pundit again:

Truly, there are other, more important things to write about, but the Rude Pundit just couldn't face scribbling another "Man, those Republicans sure are motherfarking, obstructionist, traitor dickheads" post. Let's just let it stand as more or less uncontestably true: Those Republicans sure are motherfarking, obstructionist, traitor dickheads.

Luckily, he came across the latest scrawlings of conservative writer and speaker Jackie Gingrich Cushman, aka "NewtSpawn." Yes, yes, the daughter of the former Speaker of the House just wrote a "column" (if by "column," you mean, "the most craven attempt you have seen to get a father to love his child") that is so jaw-droppingly blind and so head-slappingly un-self-aware that you have to question if Ms. Cushman actually has ever met her own father, Newt Gingrich.

Because, see, the point of the column - and, really, you need to keep in mind that this was written by Newt Gingrich's daughter - is to ponder the question she poses early in it: "Why are the dually disgraced Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner running for office after engaging in public peccadilloes that would have doubtless persuaded many a lesser man to stay home?"

Now, you might read that and go, "Whoa, whoa, whoa, there, Jackie. Have you ever read even the briefest biography of your father? You do know that there are reasons why he's called 'disgraced former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich,' right? Right? And that those reasons include farking around on your mom with the woman who became his second wife and then farking around on her?"

Strangely, or not, depending on your level of incredulity, Cushman doesn't mention dear old Dad, who had asked his second wife for an open marriage so he could bang the woman who became his third wife without feeling guilty, and his run for, you know, the presidency of the whole damn country as an example of a "pervert" trying to get back in good electoral graces.

El_Perro: "Donald Trump's tweet Tuesday of this week puts it all in perspective"


Well it's true.  Much in the same way as getting hit by a bus does.  But true nonetheless.
 
2013-07-12 05:31:42 PM  
From the comments...

If Jackie wants to know why men who engage in "public peccadilloes" choose to keep running for office, maybe she should ask daddy for his perspective.

Hey, right on, glad someone got a login so that they could point this out. Obviously nobody will be dumb enough to claim....

Oh wait, I'm getting something over the telex...

And you will, of course, enlighten us what transgressions Newt Gingrich committed that he deserves eternal shame for?

Wow, this must be 10-Second Tom from 50 First Dates...

Bonus: Starts with a Donald Trump tweet. A man I remember who carried on an affair for many years and went through a very messy public divorce over it.

2013-07-12 05:38:08 PM  
...And if anyone in the comments points out the Newt bangs other women like a gong, it's suddenly "attacking the daughter of a politician".

Jesus, the TownHall-ites are farking studip.

/Yes I spelled it that way on purpose.
 
2013-07-12 05:41:52 PM  
I like how Colbert put it early in the GOP Primaries, back when Newt and Jon Huntsman were still in the running, and Newt was actually a contender:

"[Newt]'s had more wives than both Mormons in the race combined!"
 
2013-07-12 05:45:38 PM  
Lying to your constituents by saying you didn't do it is worse than the action of adultery.  Weiner lied to the public.  Liberals... they understand this, right?
 
2013-07-12 05:45:50 PM  
Wow.  My Dad was not Newt Gingrich.  I really do have a lot to be thankful for.

Silly subby. You are only disgraced (or disgraceful) when your affairs become public while you are having them. If they are revealed after the fact and you are already married again, it's ok. Duh!

Ummm, I dunno. Do YOU understand that Newt lied to a Congressional Ethics committee, among 6 zillion lies he told?  Do you know anything at all about Gingrich, or do you cover your ears and shout "LA La La La La" every time he is spoken about?

Weiner and Spitzer resigned, in disgrace. Did David "Diaperboy" Vitter (R) resign? Nope. Diaperboy just said a few words about Jebus and had his whore killed in Jail. Republicans... they understand this, right?
 
2013-07-12 06:06:56 PM  
Why would anyone give a damn what Jackie Gingrich Cushman has to say about anything?
 
2013-07-12 06:06:58 PM  
She's actually not being hypocritical - read what she actually wrote:

Why are the dually disgraced Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner running for office after engaging in public peccadilloes that would have doubtless persuaded many a lesser man to stay home?

No one has ever made the claim that Gingrich is not massive in his ability to be an asshole.
 
2013-07-12 06:11:41 PM  
With these daddy issues she must be one hell of a wildcat in bed.

"I'm honored, and more than a little surprised, to receive this prestigious award," Vivas said. "It never occurred to me that Newt Gingrich, one of the principal architects of the conservative 'Contract with America' in the 1990's, would be willing to brave criticism from the far right of his party in order to recognize good work done on the part of an adult entertainment professional."

In his dreams maybe.  You should read up on Hefner sometime, and the Chicago mansion.  He was an eccentric, and probably saddle-sore.

Abandoning your oath of office and marital vows to fly to Argentina and have an affair, all while being unreachable in case of emergency. Then when caught, lie about the whole damn thing and claim you were "hiking the Appalachian Trail"

Actually, you're correct; lying to your constituents should be considered worse than cheating on one's spouse.

How low do you rank cheating on one's spouse while hypocritically trying to impeach a President over cheating on his spouse? Hypocrisy is worse than both, since it contains both, right?

You're confusing cognitive dissonance with doublethink.  Cognitive dissonance is the stress/embarrassment/guilt people feel when their beliefs make no goddamn sense.  Palin shows none of these things.
