Newt: so out of touch with reality that he can only get his incoherent screeds published in Newsweek


/GFY you treasonous cock

So that makes Newt what? OJ?

If Newt Gingrich is so damn terrific, why did he resign from the House twenty years ago?
 
2019-03-20 05:19:25 PM  
I have a policy which is if Newt is for it I am against it. If he is against it I am most likely for it or at least ok with it. The policy hadn't let me down yet.
 
2019-03-20 05:30:16 PM  
Said similar idiotic things about Obama.
 
2019-03-20 05:35:16 PM  
What's weird is he meant it as a insult , but if you look at it another way. They took a mediocre sex tape and turned it into a franchise, then turned that into a billion dollar plus industry. Sadly, that is not an insult.

Shut up, Disgraced Former Speaker. Go be disgraced somewhere else.

Newt Gingrich most ressembles:

a) Rush LImbaugh's Mini-Me clone
b) the evil angora white cat from Cats and Dogs
c) the insane albino monk from the Dan Brown movies
d) a fat cat smug albinoid bastard from a right wing religious university who has achieved tenure by embracing no intellectual advances since 1847.
 
2019-03-20 06:56:28 PM  
I should have gone with d) all of the above, shouldn't I? It was less complicated and recherché.

If he hasn't got a government office, where is the desk on which he is test-driving Wife Number Four right now?  Virtue.

Sometimes I think these Republican Conservative moralizers mean to say Virtù instead of virtue but can't get the accent right either unless they do why I did and copy it from an article on Niccolo Machiaveli.

Who cares about Newt. Left his wife to die.
 
2019-03-20 09:03:42 PM  
The problem with cancer is it missed Newt and hit his wife.

That Stay Puft Marshmallow motherfarker is still in the news?
 
2019-03-20 09:39:36 PM  
Well you seem to have hit upon something Mr. Gingrich.  Obviously the first step toward fulfilling your own presidential ambitions is for you to blow Ray J

sithon: They took a mediocre sex tape and turned it into a franchise, then turned that into a billion dollar plus industry. Sadly, that is not an insult.


I blame OJ. Everyone in Hollywood has a sex tape. But the fact that the Kardashian patriarch was part of the OJ trial let all of them weasel into the public eye. Unleashing the Kardashians upon us is easily the worst thing OJ ever did.
 
2019-03-20 10:13:42 PM  
Yep, they're worried.

He had to get to work planning his moon base?

I didn't even know that Newt is still alive.

Only in this current media environment could they drag out this corpse to try to get clicks.

Yup.
If Newt says your horrible, it can only mean you're right over target.

Beto will pass a comprehensive Prison Reform act?
 
2019-03-20 11:43:38 PM  
Look out, Beto. Seems like Newt has got it bad for your big creamy butt.
 
2019-03-20 11:43:55 PM  
Newt doesn't even love America anymore. If he did, he would have left his current wife for a younger woman already.
 
2019-03-20 11:45:54 PM  

Bimmer Jones: If Newt Gingrich is so damn terrific, why did he resign from the House twenty years ago?


Newt is still cool enough to leave his kids outside in the snow while he banged his mistress and then go to the hearing and spend his time criticising Clinton for having an affair and being unfaithful. You don't see Beto doing that.
 
2019-03-20 11:48:42 PM  
Fun fact: Newt's stem cell ban is why it took 22 years to go from realizing HIV could be cured via bone marrow transplant and curing it via bone marrow transplant.  Get rid of the ban and that would have happened in 2002 using donated tissue from a miscarriage. (Note 22 +/- 3)

That's a whole lot of dead Americans.

Mo' money in private life.

I bet Tom Wolfe is rolling in his grave having had his legacy anally reamed by Newt Effing Gingrich in a sopping wet faux-intellectual column for the esteemed rag, Newsweek.

Trump is the poor man's idea of a rich man.

Newt is the stupid man's idea of an intellectual.

It's not Fark, it's Beto.com!

Can't think of a better endorsement.

As if it's our responsibility what Republicans obsess over?
 
2019-03-20 11:55:41 PM  
In the age of the Kardashians, O'Rourke may be the perfect candidate. He is in because he is in. He should lead because he likes to lead. We should applaud and watch in awe because that is our role.

Somehow, I doubt if this will work.


IT WORKED FOR DONALD TRUMP, YOU IDIOTIC DICKWAD!

Seriously, how can any TrumpHumpers claim that a person can't get elected on populism alone? Trump has ZERO qualifications to be president. He hasn't even learned anything since getting elected.

But he farking got elected for ALL of the reasons Newt lists. All he did was act like he was destined to win, say exactly what his base wanted to hear, and continually pat himself on the farking back.

Does he realize the irony of him saying this while supporting an actual "reality tv" persona?

uh, no. White boy doesn't have booty.

It's more like I think this is the 6th Beto thread that was green lit today.  I was just poking fun at that.

Nope. Not in the least.

Passed by a TV running FNC tonight and they were doing a segment on Beto that would have made Weekly World News blush. Random, pointless anecdotes that were little more than "Isn't this guy so weeeeird and otheeeerrrr and duuumb now he'll never be president lololol"

"What if [Obama] is so outside our comprehension, that only if you understand Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior, can you begin to piece together [his actions]? That is the most accurate, predictive model for his behavior."

So weird Graham is going after Beto. He's not even a leading Dem contender.
