“Newt Gingrich is like the Italian Cruise Ship Captain”


I hate to actually agree on something with Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council.  But you know what they say about a broken clock being right twice a day.

Tony Perkins said:

“I think, especially in the evangelical community, they understand the issue of forgiveness.  But that does not necessarily translate into endorsing for leadership.  When you look at the captain of the Costa Concordia, the guy who abandoned his responsibility — I mean, who’s going to put him in charge of a cruise ship again? I’m not getting on that cruise ship.”

And come to think of it, there are some other parallels between Newt Gingrich and Captain Francesco Schettino of the Costa Concordia captain.  For instance:

Newt Gingrich’s reason for presenting his first wife with divorce papers while she was in the hospital undergoing cancer treatments:  he was overcome by an uncontrollable patriotic love for America.

The reason Captain Francesco Schettino deserted the sinking Costa Concordia:  he tripped and fell into a lifeboat.

Now what if these two wiggly slippery creatures switched places?  If Captain Francesco Schettino took Newt Gingrich's place on the campaign trail  — could anyone tell the difference?

Tell the difference? Yes, the captain is better looking.

Well said. I agree, Gingrich is pathetic - good comparison.

But but, the de facto leader of the pugs said today that Newt's adultery was a sign of character. AYUP< Lush Rimjob actually said it's a sign of character he asked for the open marriage, unlike that Clinton guy that got a blowjob in office, Newt did the right thing by asking first. Am I a bad person, for now wanting Gingrich to be the candidate that goes up against PO?

Ever notice Obama's inability to speak in flowing complete sentences , because he is constantly stopping to filter his words so that his true self doesn't appear as it did like he spoke to Joe the Plumber

If Newt had character, he would not have been screwing around on his wife BEFORE asking her for an open marriage.

This little blurb of completely unrelated (and illegible) nonsense proves that dumb broads like you should stick to cooking, squirting babies, and watching the Kardashians. You clearly do not know enough about politics to speak to even the most rudimentary elements of what is going on.

Yes it is JR it means he doesn't want Gingrich to debate him and Newt is right the media doesn't either.
Obama is the one who should be in the kitchen,who cares what he burns on his own stove.

As long as he's not like the Italian Cruise Ship Crooner. One bad album is enough.

What? You prefer having the anti-christ as our president?

As we all know, God only forgives Republicans. They all have clean slates and are as pure as the driven snow.

All of us make mistakes and errors of judgment through out our lives. For the captain this may have been his one and only major boo boo. Gingrich however has made it his life's career.

It's too bad all the comics have left the Republiclown bus. Now we are left with Serious, More Serious, and Seriously Out of Touch. You pick who fits which.

The problem with Newt is he is not even funny. Neither is Mitt. Frothy man has his moments, but I afraid he won't be able to carry the rest of the crew. At least Perry-winkle, Michelle and Cain were good for a laugh or three.

Jerry: I haven't seen any pictures of him, but Gingrich is an ugly F$#&!#$&!!!

Mauigirl: I agree, he's pathetic.

Jess: Yup, Gingrich has character and he's a victim. The Right can sure spin things.

Jerry: Nope, no character whatsoever.

JR: Well said.

Randal: Maybe he could perform a duet with Pat Boone.

Dave: Yes, bring on the Anti-Christ.

okjimm: LOL. Now there's a halcyon memory. If Newt was swabbing the deck, somebody would push him over the side.

Anonymous: Yup, beyond pathetic.

Demeur: If Gingrich gets the nomination, I hope there's still a lot more dirt on him that can be dug up and released.

MRM: You're right, the funny ones have all dropped out. The ones who are left are either scary-crazy or a Gordon Gekko wannabe.

What Gingrich and Schettino really have in common is that it's all about them. What happens to a wife and family, or a few thousand passengers is a matter of que será será.

Gingrich's stupefying hypocrisy aside, he is one big, fat, fucking pussy. So much whining! Make it stop!

He needs to STFU with all the "everyone's being so mean to me" shit and deal with the repercussions of the decisions he made in life, including the one to run for President of the United States (and be thrust under the public microscope).

SW: Good point. Que será será indeed, whether it's a sinking ship or a sinking country.

Carlos: Good description of Gingrich. I can't believe that over-the-hill asshole actually said "I don't just want to bloody Obama's nose; I want to knock him out."

LOL. He'd probably swing and miss and have a heart attack.
