Newt Gets The Boot!
The AP is reporting that Newt Gingrich’s campaign manager and numerous other key aides have resigned together. Gingrich press spokesman Rick Tyler told The Associated Press that he’s resigned along with campaign manager Rob Johnson, as well as senior strategists Sam Dawson and Dave Carney. Also quitting were early primary state key consultants Katon Dwason in South Carolina and Craig Schoenfeld in Iowa.
Polico.com reports that one official said the last straw came when Gingrich went forward with taking a long-planned cruise with his wife last week in the Greek isles.
Gingrich of course, stumbled almost immediately out of the gate, after declaring in a May appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the House Republican budget plan was too “radical” and represented “right-wing social engineering.” It was then revelaed that he had purchased up to half a million dollars worth of jewelry at Tiffany & Company which had lobbied the agency which employed his third wife. Politico.com states that after his bumpy start, rumors began to circulate in the political community the former House speaker’s days as a candidate were numbered. The collective decision by his high command to quit makes it likely that his demise will be hastened.
This is a crushing blow to the thrice-married bling-buying Republican’s hopes for a presidential nomination. So long Newt, we hardly knew ye.
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 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
