It looks more and more like Newt Gingrich will join the field of G.O.P. contestants for the 2012 Presidential election. “Contestants”, truly is the operative word. The potential group of Republican characters seeking the party’s nomination resembles a hastily assembled cast of has-been celebrities and relative unknowns for a newly developed reality tv series. Perhaps they will name it, Who Wants To Be The Losing Elephant ?
The bucket list seems to presently include Mitt(wit) Romney, Mike Huckabee Hound, Bobby Jindal(bells), Tim (Good ‘n) Pawlenty, Sarah (Baked Alaska) Palin and Mark Sanford (and Son). By the way wouldn’t you just love the idea of a President Sanford taking the stage, not with Hail to The Chief playing in the background but rather, the theme to Sanford and Son. Doo Doo Doo Doo, Doo Doo Doo Doo do do do… Ahh, but we digress.
Inasmuch as it was Newt Gingrich that was the keynote speaker at this week’s House/Senate Republican fundraising dinner, he must also now be considered a potential 2012 nominee. What with his recent “she is a racist” “oh, wait a minute, no she is not a racist” flip-flop regarding Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor, however, he too is now somewhat of a joke. Alas, he too deserves a nickname. How about Newt Gin(grinch)?
If any of you readers have any other suggestions for nicknames for any of the potential Republican candidates, we would love to hear them. Please leave your contributions in the comment section of this post.
And here is the aptly entitled song parody of the day…
Please remember to click on the song link below before reading the lyrics because it is so much more fun to sing along while the actual song is playing.
You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPBS7dVrE1U
YOU’RE A HAS-BEEN, NEWT GINGRICH
(sung to the Dr. Seuss song “The Grinch That Stole Christmas”)
You’re a has-been, Newt Gingrich
You’re lacking in appeal
Your were ousted as The Speaker
No one wants to hear you squeal
You’re a unicycle
Without even one wheel
You’ve had three wives, Newt Gingrich
A mistress in the hole
Philandering’s your day job
You’re a slimy ugly troll
These woman that like you, must
Be on work release or parole
You’re a vile one, Newt Gingrich
Your words reek with rancid bile
Your criticism of Bill Clinton
As you’re cheating all the while
There couldn’t be a bigger hypocrite
Within a Midwest country mile
You’re a foul one, Newt Gingrich
Your first divorce smelled of skunk
Your wife, Jackie fighting cancer
You told her she was junk
The nicest words to describe you,
Are, as follows, and I quote, Pink. Wank, Punk
You’re a coward, Newt Gingrich
Avoided your army spot
That likes to talk real tough
Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing
With the most disgraceful assortment of Republican
Mangled up in tangled up knots
You’re the racist, Newt Gingrich
It’s not Judge Sotomayor
You play the race card as a white guy
That’s so laughable I’m sure
You’re a stinking pile of vomit
Sitting in the sun
With feces on top
