Newt Gingrich in 2012: How His Presidential Campaign Imploded

“Staff? I don’t need no stinkin’ staff not to be elected president! Hell, I can do that with one hand tied behind my back while ordering from Tiffany’s website”.

Newt Gingrich 2012 Reboot: Speech Comes As First Since Campaign Upheaval

Newt Gingrich: ‘I will endure the challenges’

Herman Cain: Obama Was Raised in Kenya

Tim Pawlenty jabs ‘Obamneycare’

“President Obama said that he designed Obamacare after Romneycare and basically made it Obamneycare,” Pawlenty said. “What I don’t understand is that they both continue to defend it.”

Previewing the New Hampshire debate

1) Who swings hardest at Mitt Romney?; (2) How will Newt Gingrich try to hit the reset button?; (3) Will anyone remember Tim Pawlenty?; (4) Can Michele Bachmann look presidential?; and (5) Will Herman Cain give serious answers to serious questions?

Mitt Romney underestimated

“Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk, I’m a woman’s man; no time to talk.”

QUOTATION OF THE DAY

“To have a major breakthrough in policy, you have to be able to stop and think.” – NEWT GINGRICH, on why he took a cruise to the Greek islands.

 “My older son, Zaire (pictured), has grown up with basketball. My younger one, Zion, could take it or leave it, which is cool by me.”

RANDOM THOUGHTS

Overheard at the Playboy Jazz Festival Saturday: “Well, at least he [Weiner] was texting women.”

Republicans are this close to digging up Ronald Reagan and running his corpse in 2012.

Mitt Romney, who is running, and Jon Huntsman, who may, are both Mormons who hardcore religious conservatives (I’m aware that’s a tad bit redundant) in Iowa simply aren’t going to support or vote for in any large number. So, if that’s true, and both men and their camps seem to believe it is, why waste valuable time, money, staff and other resources taking part in non-binding “straw polls”? Frankly, I wish they had the guts to skip both Iowa and New Hampshire altogether if not for the delegate counts.

When, how and why did Newt Gingrich get such a reputation in the media as a “brilliant mind”?

I wonder what Anthony Weiner would do if his staff “Newt Gingriched” him and quit en masse.

Hey John Boehner and Eric Cantor, we’re [America] still waiting on that jobs bill you promised us! I’m just saying…

Soccer moms, NASCAR dads, what’s next as a campaign demographic – Parents with a job?

If you’re not Tivoing or DVRing Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live, you’re depriving yourself of the funniest shows in late-night television. Trust me on this. 

The Audi “Second Owner” TV ads are hee-larious.

Before Saturday, I thought the four luckiest people in show business history were Ringo Starr, the other two guys in the Black Eyed Peas and Damon “Tuba Gooding Jr.” Bryson, the tuba player in The Roots. However, after seeing the band close the Playboy Jazz Festival Saturday night and hearing quite possibly the greatest tuba solo in history – I’m not even joking a little bit – Bryson is off that list forever.

It’s beginning to look more and more that Giovanni Ramirez may be guilty of something, but not the March 31st beating of Giants fan Bryan Stow in a Dodger Stadium parking lot.

Kobe won two rings without Shaq, but D-Wade lost one without him. Ergo: Kobe is better than D-Wade. Right?

Come on Pookie, Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert tweets about LeBron James, let it go.

Speaking of James…He doesn’t seem to be able to let it go either. LeBron James to Haters: Your Life Still Sucks!

Mavericks guard Jason Terry, attempting to motivate himself and his teammates, had an image of the NBA championship trophy tattooed on his right bicep before the Finals began. As you know, Dallas won the championship last night. Later today, I’ll be having an image of Halle Berry tattooed somewhere on my body.

FINALLY

Get well wishes to saxophonist Clarence “Big Man” Clemons of the E Street Band who recently suffered a stroke.
