Bachmann/Taitz: Tea-Party For Two and Two For Tea-Party

Michele Bachmann (R) MN and Orly Taitz, DDS, Esq., Real Estate Agent – Two Koo-Koo Birds of a feather.

How do the crazies always seem to find each other? And why in the world do they always commemorate the occasion with a photo when they do? These are some of the unanswered questions that have plagued the political world for some time.

Remember the photos of Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber? How about those of Palin and Michele Bachmann? Palin and Glenn Beck? Bachmann and various Tea-Baggers? Palin and assorted Tea-Baggers? Bachmann and Michelle Malkin? And most recently, Palin and Arizona governor Jan Brewer?

Well, just look above and see the newest crackpot photo to hit the blogosphere. Yup, once again it is Minnesota’s moonbat crazy Republican Rep., Presidential candidate and member of the “Birther” movement, Michele Bachmann and the wackiest “Birther” of them all, Orly Taitz, the dentist/lawyer/real estate agent. Taitz, you might recall is the person who has filed multiple lawsuits seeking to have President Barack Obama removed from office because she alleges he was not born in the United States. Of course all of her lawsuits have been dismissed involuntarily and Taitz has been reprimanded on at least one occasion by the Court.

It appears that the above photo was taken on May 14, 2010 at a luncheon in Irvine, California which was attended by both of the fools. It was almost immediately posted on Taitz’s personal website.

Lynnrockets can’t wait until the Democratic Party starts asking voters to, “Take a look at who Michele Bachmann’s been palling around with?”

Rush Limbaugh Is A Recklessly Rancid Repeat Racist

Rush Limbaugh is “THE VOICE” of conservative talk radio. He has held that dubious distinction since about 1984. He has also been an ignorant outspoken racist for at least that long.

Limbaugh is not a very well educated man. He flunked out of Southeast Missouri State University after only two semesters and one summer session. To date, he has no college degree. As evidence of his lack of commitment and self control, he has also been married four times and is an admitted drug addict. In short, Rush Limbaugh has all the qualifications one would require to influence a large and similarly dysfunctional audience of illiterates that anxiously wait for his next command. Remember “Operation Chaos”?

Rush Limbaugh is also a blatant racist. He resigned under pressure in 2003 after only a very brief stint co-hosting ESPN‘s “Sunday NFL Countdown” after he claimed that quarterback Donovan McNabb was overrated because the media wanted to see a black quarterback succeed. (BTW, McNabb is still playing professional football). Later, he talked about football once again when he said, “Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons”. Limbaugh also once referred to New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner as a “cracker who made African-Americans millionaires”.  Remember when he said, “The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies”? How about when he told an African American female caller to his show to, “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back”? The examples of Limbaugh’s racism go on and on but we will leave the rest of his past offenses for another time.

For now, let’s concentrate on what he said last week. To no one’s surprise, Limbaugh accompanied a rant about how Barack Obama’s presidency is “graffiti on the walls of American history” with both a reference to Obama’s “gang” and an illustration of a “tagged” Mount Rushmore on his website.

Here are Rush Limbaugh’s exact words:

This guy is an utter wrecking ball all by himself on the world stage to the point now of getting embarrassing.  This presidency of Obama’s, it doesn’t take much to irritate the left. Try this:  “Barack Obama’s presidency is graffiti on the walls of American history.”  That’s what his administration is.  No more than graffiti on the walls of American history.  We have a juvenile delinquent for a president who has ruined so much public and private property, not even his gang is making much of an effort here to protect him.  It’s an utter disaster..

Racist enough for you?

Today’s song parody deals with Limbaugh’s drug addiction. He used to enjoy spouting off about the necessity of drug offenders receiving stiff jail sentences. That all changed, however, in 2006 when he surrendered to Palm Beach County (Florida) officials on charges of doctor shopping as the result of his own drug addiction to oxycodone and hydrocodone. He did everything within his power to avoid just such a sentence. Speaking of stiff sentences, let’s not forget that in June of 2006 he was detained by drug enforcement officials at Palm Beach International Airport when he attempted to bring a bottle of Viagra (the prescription was in somebody else’s name, by the way) into the country after his island vacation with a bunch of men.

THE HO HO SONG

(sung to the Ringo Starr song “The No No Song”)

A doctor that I know just came from the pharmacy
He smiled at Rush and opened up his hand
Then he held out some Oxycontin tablets
He said they were the finest in the land

And Rush said, “Ho ho ho ho”
Do you have any more
My back is feeling really damn sore
If I say please
Can I have more of these
My habit has become really hardcore

A friend of Rush Limbo who wears a hat made of tin
Came on the show and opened up his hand
When he revealed twelve tablets of Vicodin
Rush was so happy he performed handstands

And Rush said, “Ho ho ho ho”
Do you have any more
I always come to you for a score
Without more of these
I’m in a cold-turkey freeze
And ditto-heads need someone to adore

(hallucination break)

A ditto-head I know said he could make organs grow
He smiled and said Rush would not need his hand
Then he gave him some blue Viagra pills, Oh
And said that things will rise upon command

And Rush said, “Ho ho ho ho”
Do you have any more
My love life has become such a chore
Please, pretty please
I’m flying overseas
The boys there like it when it hits the floor

Yes, Rush said, “Ho ho ho ho”
I just love the drug store
Painkillers, Viagra and much more
It’s such a tease
All of those varieties
I’ll grab a bunch and head right out the door.

Bruins Win Stanley Cup Making Boston The New Titletown!!!

The Boston Bruins beat the odds tonight by Winning Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. They whipped the Vancouver Canucks by a score of 4 to 0 on Vancouver’s home ice. It is the 6th time that the Bruins have won the Cup, but the first time since 1972. In the process of winning this year’s Cup the Bruins became the first NHL team to ever win 3 seven game series. They also played more playoff games this season than any other team in history.

Even more impressive however, is that the City of Boston is now the first city to win a championship in each of the 4 major sports this millennium. Since the year 2000, Boston has won 3 Super Bowls, 2 World Series, 1 NBA championship and now the Stanley Cup! Woooo!!!

Sarah Palin Song Parody And Open Thread

Lynnrockets has been a little too busy to draft a substantive blog post today, so we will have an open thread.

By the way, we could use all your well wishes for a Boston Bruins Stanley Cup Championship tonight. The Bruins have not won the Cup since 1972, so we Bostonians have been waiting long enough.

OLD DAZE

(sung to the Chicago song “Old Days”)

Old days
Before last November
Fun days
Palin’s foolish treasures
“Bridge to Nowhere”
Pitbull with lipstick on
New clothes to wear
Unclaimed per diem pay
Take us back
To “Drill Baby Drill” days
Memories
Just like “Troopergate”

Old days
Palin times remembered
Poll daze
When she could see Russia
Foreign places
Winking eyes, “You Betcha’s”
Making faces
Charles Gibson and Couric
Interviews
Thoughts she couldn’t convey
Golden memories
Spot on Tina Fey

Old days – Joe the Plumber with her every day
Old days – When she fouled up her only debate
Old days – When she killed that turkey on TV
Old days – We laughed so hard that we had to pee
Old days – She said “Maverick” nearly every day
Old days – The “Hockey Mom” that never came to play
Old days – She did not know the role of VP
Old days – who’s the real mother of that baby?

Is Palin Facing A Birth Certificate Issue Of Her Own? Somebody Call Donald Trump And The Birthers!

Birthers of a different kind.

Since the birth of her son Trig sometime in 2008, there have been questions raised in the blogosphere and in some remote corners of the main stream media about whether Sarah Palin faked that particular pregnancy. Queries have been made as to whether her co-workers ever noticed if she looked pregnant. The credibility of Palin’s story that her water broke while in Texas and yet she still elected to take a very lengthy and risky flight back to Alaska (during which she failed to mention the situation to flight staff) to have a baby (which she allegedly knew had Down Syndrome and was 6 weeks premature) at one of two different hospitals where she claims he was born has been questioned. There is a question about photos of the baby having a malformed ear and then other photos wherein the ear appears to look normal.

Is this stuff conspiracy theory or is there some meat on this bone? Who knows, but now after the release by the State of Alaska of some 24,000 emails which Palin attempted to block, there is added fuel to the babygate fire. BusinessInsider.com reports that “Andrew Sullivan and others who have read one of Sarah Palin’s newly released emails think it supports the theory that her Trig pregnancy was a hoax.”

A few days after Trig’s birth in 2008, Sarah Palin transmitted an email to family and friends in which she pretended to be the voice of God commenting on the subject. Sullivan contends that the newly released emails show that the “God” email was actually written 11 days before it was sent. It was therefore written about 7 weeks before Trig’s expected due date (he was born 6 weeks early). It was also written about a week before Palin’s water allegedly broke, signalling that the baby would be born prematurely. The email in question however, says in pertinent part,

“I let Trig’s mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it, and I even seemed to rush it along so she could wait until near the end to surprise you with the news…”

BusinessInsider.com states that Andrew Sullivan queries as to how Sarah Palin would “know 6 weeks before the due date and 1 week before her water broke that the pregnancy would be “exceptionally comfortable” and that God would seem to “rush it along”…unless she knew the outcome?” Sullivan also points out “that the “God” letter was reprinted almost verbatim in Palin’s book Going Rogue… except that the phrase ‘rush it along’ was struck from the text.”

Hmmm, now that is some spicy stuff. Is it possible that the failed 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate and potential 2012 Presidential candidate has been lying to the American people? Who knows, but one thing is certain, Palin could end the controversy merely by releasing Trig’s birth certificate which would provide the date and place of birth as well as the names of the parents. Palin must understand this. After-all, the former ex-quitting half-term Gov. of Alaska joined the Tea Party in questioning not only President Barack Obama’s place of birth, but also the legitimacy of the birth certificate which he released.

Somebody please call Donald Trump and the Birthers to finally put this story to rest!

Weiner Scandal Exposes The Republican Hypocrisy Named David Vitter

It has been almost comical watching elected Republican politicians and conservative pundits calling for Rep. Anthony Weiner’s (D-NY) immediate resignation as the result of his recent scandal involving  sexually explicit photos and emails. We are all now fully aware that Rep. Weiner stepped outside the moral bounds of his marriage. We are also fully aware of the fact that there has not been any allegation that Weiner actually had sexual relations with any woman outside his marriage. He has also been cleared by law enforcement of any allegations of sexting to a 17 year old.

Nonetheless, the Weiner situation is disturbing. Although the voting public has learned otherwise on multiple occasions, we still want to believe that our elected officials will not only do their best to legislate in the best interest of their constituents, but we would also like to believe that they will be some sort of a moral compass. Those hopeful beliefs are, unfortunately, too often dashed by the reality that the political arena (like all other fields of employment) is comprised of moral heroes and moral villains.

These heroes and villains of moral behavior exist in all political parties. No one political party is either all good or all bad. The examples of bi-partisan sexual misbehavior are mind-numbing. A problem arises however, when one party unilaterally declares that it is the party of “family values” or is comprised of members of the “moral majority”. When one party declares that it (to the exclusion of the other parties) is the better defender of morality and wholesomeness, that party better be prepared to withstand scrutiny. It is the Republican Party which has taken that stance time and again but has been exposed by its own hypocrisy.

This is where the comedy sets in. Those members of the GOP and the conservative media calling for Rep. Weiner to “do the right thing” and resign his office are literally tripping over themselves while trying to avoid the 800 pound gorilla in their own living room. That gorilla is named David Vitter.

David Vitter is a sitting Republican US Senator from Louisiana who was the sponsor of the Marriage Protection Amendment. He is a staunch political  conservative that previously served in the House of Representatives after having replaced Republican Robert Livingston when Livingston was forced to resign as the result of an adultery scandal. At the time, Vitter said,

“It’s obviously a tremendous loss for the state. I think Livingston’s stepping down makes a very powerful argument that Clinton should resign as well and move beyond this mess”, referring to Bill Clinton’sMonica Lewinsky scandal.

Problem is, it was later revealed that Vitter, a married man with children, had been conducting a lengthy affair with at least one New Orleans prostitute. When initially confronted with the accusation, Vitter said that the allegation was, ” absolutely and completely untrue.” However, in July 2007 his phone number appeared in the records of the infamous “DC Madam.” Consequently, Vitter finally fessed up and said

“This was a very serious sin in my past for which I am, of course, completely responsible. Several years ago, I asked for and received forgiveness from God and my wife in confession and marriage counseling. Out of respect for my family, I will keep my discussion of the matter there — with God and them. But I certainly offer my deep and sincere apologies to all I have disappointed and let down in any way.”

In short, David Vitter was involved in a sex scandal of his very own. Not only was he unfaithful to his wife and children while in office, he also admitted to committing the crime of hiring prostitutes. Let’s repeat that. David Vitter actually had sexual relations outside of his marriage by means of engaging in criminal activity. This was not sending explicit photos and text via email or Twitter, it was actual illegal sex with prostitutes. To add insult to injury, it was later alleged by one of his call girls that Vitter liked to be dressed in diapers during his sessions. (See diaper story here).

This is where Republican and conservative media hypocrisy rears its ugly head. You see, after having been caught with his hand in the cookie jar, Vitter did not resign. To make matters worse, the Republican Party leadership did not call for Vitter’s resignation either. In fact, there was not one sitting federal Republican politician that demanded Vitter’s resignation. Not only did the Republican Party brush Vitter’s indiscretions under the table, they continu to fund-raise on his behalf and accept donations from his political action committee which is hilariously named the Louisiana Reform PAC (emphasis added). David Vitter continues to hold his US Senate seat today. No Republicans or members of the conservative media are calling for his resignation despite the fact that Rep. Weiner’s indiscretions pale in comparison to David Vitter’s.

Inasmuch as a picture (or in this case, a video clip) is worth a thousand words. Watch how Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus reacted when he appeared yesterday on Meet The Press  and was presented with the fact that he is being hypocritical for demanding Anthony Weiner’s resignation but not David Vitter’s. Rather than give a coherent defense for his position (which he cannot because one does not exist) Priebus embarrassingly attempts to change the subject to the the economy and the price of gas. Priebus’ evasion is laughable to say the least.

If you would like to watch a truly in depth discussion of the GOP’s “Vitter Problem” here is a segment from Rachel Maddow. Facts are facts and Maddow fully lays them out. Please watch the entire video clip.

Can you say double standard?

WALK WITH AN ERECTION

(sung to the Bangles song “Walk Like An Egyptian”)

All the G.O.P.s in bedrooms
They do the sex dance with their hoes
They’re getting their kicks (oh whey oh)
They think that their wives will never know

There sat Larry Craig with a smile
Hoping to score a tete-a-tete
He set for awhile (oh whey oh)
On the airport Men’s Room toilet

Cleans his pipe with a Handy Wipe play
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk with an erection

Mark Sanford goes missing for days
In South America for a score
He’s got the moves (oh whey oh)
But he’s a fink and his gal’s a whore

John Ensign met his while at work
Along with her son and her husband
He paid them like kings (oh whey oh)
No talking of his erection

All the guys in the G.O.P. say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk with an erection

(marital affair break)

Newt Gingrich left his wife with no tact
In the cancer ward on her back
Life is hard you know (oh whey oh)
He even took her new Cadillac

Mark Vitter pulled out all the stops
His escorts charged him the very tops
They sing and dance (oh whey oh)
Spent his way right into hawk

Then there’s Mark Foley with his men
He says he won’t do it again
But those heinies know (oh whey oh)
He works with a big erection

All the boys in the G.O.P. say
Ay oh whey oh, ay oh whey oh
Walk with an erection
Walk with an erection

Sunday Morning Coffee (or Tea) – 82

Just a few newsworthy items (and comments thereon) that have been making their way through the political universe this past week but may have escaped your attention. Please ponder and maybe chuckle a bit before enjoying a wonderful day!

BREAKING NEWS:  This week’s episode of “Don’t Let Facts Get In The Way Of  A Good Lie” features Republican presidential candidate Tim “Good ‘n” Pawlenty. This week Tim Pawlenty said,

Keep in mind, whether it be the Bush tax cuts, the Reagan tax cuts, or other tax cuts, they always produce an increase in revenue. There’s no dispute about that…

Umm Tim, yes there is a dispute about that. As this graph shows, the 1981 Reagan tax cuts and the 2001/2003 Bush tax cuts were both followed by drops in revenue:

THIS JUST IN: Oh No! It was Weiner’s weiner!

BREAKING NEWS:  Prospective GOP presidential candidate and present Texas governor, Rick Perry wants to substantially cut funding for public education in his state to the extent that it may end public education. Few Texans should be surprised that their state wants to remove more financing from public education, since it has been doing so almost every year for the past decade. However, it is a sad commentary of a state that is almost last on the list of states providing quality public education. Hey, a stupid population is sure to vote Republican.

THIS JUST IN:  This week’s episode of “Go Go Gophers” features Minnesota’s moonbat-crazy Michele Bachmann and Tim “Good ‘n” Pawlenty. Minnesota has a distinction in this presidential cycle, with two different candidates likely in the race for the Republican nomination. But as a new survey from Public Policy Polling (D) suggests, both former Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Rep. Michele Bachmann would lose their home state to President Obama were they the GOP nominee. So much for home field advantage.

BREAKING NEWS:  Speaking of home field advantage or the lack thereof, the same poll reveals that Barack Obama would crush former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney by a landslide margin of 57%-37% in the Bay State. The Mittwit is now unpopular in both of his home states of Massachusetts and Michigan.

THIS JUST IN: This week’s episode of “Hypocrisy In Action” features New Jersey’s Republican Gov. Chris Christie. The self-proclaimed belt-tightening fiscal conservative who wants to drastically cut Medicaid eligibility in his state was caught taking a state owned helicopter to his son’s little league game. He only offered to refund the immensely expensive trip after he was caught.

BREAKING NEWS: Following in the footsteps of the buyer’s remorse demonstrated by Minnesotans, voters in Michigan have now initiated recall petitions against Republican Gov. Rick Snyder and 15 Republican legislators. Michigan voters are upset about the draconian emergency manager law, school cuts, the tax on pensions and other issues.

THIS JUST IN:  Fox News Comment of the week. Fox Headline: “Tracy Morgan’s Shocking Alleged Homophobic Rant: I’ll Kill My Son If He Acts Gay”. Fox news Comment: “If he’s serious that makes him a “go” at being a good dad too many parents have failed their children over the years. I’d off mine if he turned out gay. Homosexuality is disgusting, disturbing and wrong on every level. I like his idea.” Wow! How is that for an informed Fox news fan?

BREAKING NEWS: This week’s episode of “Face-Slap Of The Week” features Sarah Palin. The former ex-quitting half-term Gov. of Alaska told the British newspaper The Guardian,

“I am going to Sudan in July and hope to stop in England on the way. I am just hoping Mrs Thatcher is well enough to see me as I so admire her.”

In response, the paper reported that a Margaret Thatcher associate said,

“Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin. That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts.”

Wow! That is sure to leave a mark!

Carefree Highway song link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZbWM2whkVq4

WASILLA HIGHWAY

(sung to the Gordon Lightfoot song “Carefree Highway”)

Pickin’ up the pieces of my sweet Alaskan dream
I wonder how “Joe Sixpack” is tonight
Her name was Sarah, she wore rimless glasses on her face
She was Guv and she was quite uptight
Wasilla Highway, let her slip away on you
Wasilla Highway, she’s seen better days
The Sarah Palin blues from her beehive to her shoes
Wasilla Highway, please take her away
Her away on you.

Turnin’ back the pages to the good Ol’ Palinfest
I wonder if she’ll ever be the same
During interviews she only stumbled and then lied
Now all she has is Levi left to blame
Wasilla Highway, poor old Sarah was so lame
Wasilla Highway, she’s seen better days
The Sarah Palin blues induced by mainstream nightly news
Wasilla Highway, just take her away
Her away on you

Searchin’ through the fragments of a career that once was
I wonder if “Joe the Plumber” is still kind
Was it Ross, Levi, Wooten or Diana Palin’s bust
Or some other secret she wants left behind
Wasilla Highway, did she sneak away on you
Wasilla Highway, she’s seen better days
The mornin’ after blues will she turn to cheap-ass booze?
Wasilla Highway, did she sneak away
Sneak away on you

Did she sneak away on you
Wasilla Highway, she’s got no-one left to blame
Wasilla Highway, left without delay
No more nightly news for the Gov with fancy shoes
Wasilla Highway, let her sneak away
Sneak away on you

Seccessionist Perry May Soon Replace Philanderer Gingrich

Philanderer and Secessionist

Lynnrockets is fully aware of the Palin email dump recently performed by the state of Alaska, but will refrain from commenting thereon until they have been fully reviewed. Who knows, there may be nothing “new” to review. We must admit however that a few comments like the one which spoke about verifying baby Trig’s birth date and the withheld email having to deal with “child custody” do peak our curiosity.

Until then, we would like to comment a bit more on the topic of the Gingrich campaign’s mass staff resignation and its possible ramifications.

As you know, earlier this week Newt Gingrich’s hopes for the Republican nomination for president suffered a severe and potentially mortal blow. As many as 16 members of his top echelon of campaign staff quit abruptly because they claimed that their vision of the campaign differed significantly from Gingrich’s vision. The aides also claimed that Gingrich’s present (and 3rd) wife contributed to their decision by injecting herself too forcefully in the campaign. Indeed, the “final straw” was said to be his wife’s insistence that Gingrich take a Mediterranean cruise last week rather than to focus on the campaign.

The most devastating defections were campaign manager Rob Johnson and Dave Carney. You see, Johnson and Carney formally worked for Texas Governor Rick Perry. Many now speculate that Perry may enter the GOP presidential race and his two buddies will now be available to commandeer his campaign. Consequently, Rick Perry may become a viable candidate just as Gingrich fades away like Donald Trump. Republicans however, should not get too excited, as there are many reasons why Perry will face serious scrutiny from mainstream voters.

ThinkProgress.org has provided a list of the top 10 things that Rick Perry does not want voters to know. They are:

(1) PERRY ALLOWED THE EXECUTION OF A LIKELY INNOCENT MAN, THEN IMPEDED AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE MATTER;

(2) PERRY WANTS TO REPEAL THE 16th AND 17th AMENDMENTS, ENDING DIRECT ELECTION OF U.S. SENATORS AND THE FEDERAL INCOME TAX;

(3) PERRY PROPOSED LETTING STATES DROP OUT OF SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICAID;

(4) TEXAS IS THE COUNTRY’S BIGGEST POLLUTER, BUT PERRY SUED THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT FOR DISAPPROVING OF THE STATE’S AIR QUALITY STANDARDS;

(5) PERRY DESIGNATED AS “EMERGENCY LEGISLATION” A BILL REQUIRING ALL WOMEN SEEKING ABORTIONS TO HAVE SONOGRAMS FIRST;

(6) PERRY GUTTED CHILDCARE SERVICES EVEN AS TEXAS CHILDHOOD POVERTY HIT 25 PERCENT;

(7) PERRY WAS A STRONG SUPPORTER OF TEXAS’S ANTI-SODOMY LAWS;

(8) PERRY IS A STIMULUS HYPOCRITE WHO LOUDLY CRITICIZED FEDERAL RECOVERY MONEY BUT USED IT TO BALANCE HIS STATE’S BUDGET;

(9) PERRY SAID THAT TEXAS MIGHT HAVE TO SECEDE FROM THE UNITED STATES; and

(10) DESPITE HAVING THE WORST UNINSURED RATE IN THE COUNTRY, PERRY CLAIMS THAT TEXAS HAS “THE BEST HEALTH CARE IN THE COUNTRY”.

Newt Gets The Boot!

Rats fleeing the S.S. Gingrich

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
Newt Gingrich

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
Newt Gingich

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
Newt Gingrich

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
Newt Gingrich

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
Deferment-seeking chicken-hawk
That likes to talk real tough
Newt Gingrich

Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing
With the most disgraceful assortment of Republican
Sound-bytes imaginable,
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
Newt Gingrich

You’re a stinking pile of vomit
Sitting in the sun
With feces on top
