Weird & Creepy

1115-20120530-Weird-Creepy

A few weeks ago, Shep Smith commented on the way Newt Gingrich dropped his bid for the Republican presidential nomination by saying, “Politics is weird. And creepy. And now, I know, lacks even the loosest attachment to anything like reality.” At the time, I made a note to make a drawing about it, but I never did. Here it is now, better late than never!

Newt’s Not Rich

1013 20120109 Newt's Not Rich

While campaigning in New Hampshire last week, New Gingrich stated, “I’m not rich.” I’m not sure what he considers rich, but I’d certainly say he qualifies:
• Net worth = $6.7 million
• Income for 2010 = $2.7 million
• Charges $60,000 per speech
• Tiffany’s tab = $500,000

Newt Power

20111214 Newt Power

Newt Gingrich has been a jackass for a long time. I was reading through some amazing quotes of his earlier—which is how I found the one in this drawing: “I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power.”

Here are some other gems:

“The problem isn’t too little money in political campaigns, but not enough.”

“Gingrich – Primary mission, Advocate of civilization, Definer of civilization, Teacher of the rules of civilization, Leader of the civilizing forces.”

“The idea that a congressman would be tainted by accepting money from private industry or private sources is essentially a socialist argument.”

“It doesn’t matter what I do. People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”

“She isn’t young enough or pretty enough to be the President’s wife.” —talking about his first wife after divorcing her.

Newt Gingrich is…

20111124 Newt Gingrich

Earlier in the week Paul Krugman referred to Newt Gingrich as ‘a stupid man’s idea of what a smart man sounds like.’ Haha! I think this is perfect. Especially after Newt’s recent proposal to get rid of child labor laws so we can fire janitors and put children to work instead. Good one.
