Newt Gingrich is Such A Slimy Lizard Douche

If you've ever seen How I Met Your Mother, then you probably remember the New Year's Eve episode ('The Limo'), in which Barney brings along a 'Get Psyched' Mix featuring a Bon Jovi song. The song gets played about a dozen times during the episode, and you feel yourself get very, very, very tired of hearing it by the end.

Similarly, Newt Gingrich, a former Speaker of the House (and current water-carrier for the Republican Party), used a couple GOP 'Get Psyched' phrases to describe the questions Sarah Palin got asked last night.

And, I've got to tell you, I'm so sick and tired of hearing those same fucking songs, I'm ready to jam knitting needles in my ears.

Here's the tete-a-tete between ABC's Charlie Gibson and Palin:

GIBSON: You said recently, in your old church, "Our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God." Are we fighting a holy war?
PALIN: You know, I don't know if that was my exact quote.
GIBSON: Exact words.
PALIN: But the reference there is a repeat of Abraham Lincoln's words when he said -- first, he suggested never presume to know what God's will is, and I would never presume to know God's will or to speak God's words.

And Newt's response:

On Fox, Newt Gingrich called this "a sad commentary on the growing anti-religious hostility of the news media." I would call it asking the governor about her own words.


Look over there, America! Go ahead, look! No, no, no, the problem has nothing to do with the tack of the candidates. It's about media bias. Come on, good ole US of A. Don't you know that we really start flinging the shit when somebody 'insults' a religious conviction? Typical liberal media bias.

Is it too much to ask to give up this Christian Conservative nonsense for a single election cycle? With a candidate who would probably rather be shipped back to Hanoi than discuss his religious beliefs in public, I thought we'd get that.

But no. Alas comes the pale horse, and on it the AntiChrist. Seriously, since when did questioning a braindead politician's religious vomit ever elicit a 'controversy'?

Here's my logic:

She said it.
It's stupid.
She should be questioned about it.

If the Iraq War was a mission from God, then he must be fucking pissed. I would be, if somebody fucked something up this bad in my name.

It just goes to show, you put lipstick on a pig, and it's still a mindless zombie archconservative in a skirt.
