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.

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.

Rick Perry is the governor of Texas. He also might be running for president. His plan for the country is to let God figure it out. Is this why crazy Michele Bachmann is doing well in these early polls?
“I tell people, that “personal property” and the ownership of that personal property is crucial to our way of life.
Our founding fathers understood that it was a very important part of the pursuit of happiness. Being able to own things that are your own is one of the things that makes America unique. But I happen to think that it’s in jeopardy.
It’s in jeopardy because of taxes; it’s in jeopardy because of regulation; it’s in jeopardy because of a legal system that’s run amok. And I think it’s time for us to just hand it over to God and say, “God, You’re going to have to fix this.”
Rick Perry Platform: Let God Figure it Out
On Meet the Press, this past Sunday, Newt Gingrich, one of the republican presidential candidates and overall scumbag, blasted Paul Ryan’s proposal of cutting Medicare. Yesterday, he claimed that he didn’t mean what he said and that he was essentially tricked into saying it. The question was pretty straight-forward: “Do you think that Republicans ought to buck the public opposition and really move forward to completely change Medicare?” I guess talking about actual issues that effect the American people is tricky.
Not only do I disagree with almost everything John Boehner says—I’m also convinced he has a serious drinking problem.
