Hark! The Disgraced Former Speaker Speaks.

It’s simple enough to avoid Judge Sonia Sotomayor smear-tweets like these:

White man racist nominee would be forced to withdraw. Latina woman racist should also withdraw.

Imagine a judicial nominee said “my experience as a white man makes me better than a latina woman” new racism is no better than old racism.

Just be sure not to follow Newt Gingrich’s Twitter feed.

If only it were as easy to dodge Newt on TV, in print, and on the Net.

And that brings me to my latest song parody, which you can sing to Hark! The Herald Angels Sing:

Hark! The Disgraced Former Speaker Speaks.
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Hark! The former Speaker speaks.
Headlines, Speaker Gingrich seeks.
News cos eagerly come through.
They don’t care his claims ain’t true.

Gleefully he airs his lies,
Spreading venom, media buys.
Watch the ousted Newt proclaim,
Sonia is just a racist dame.

Darkly, Gingrich spews his views.
Can’t avoid him on the news.

    Knowing a little about ex-pols, I wonder if Newt demands speaking fees from Fox, MSNBC, and CNN.

    Thanks for the laugh! The MSM is so awful on the subject I’ve turned it off.

    Glad you enjoyed it Lake Lady and lordofflies. Thanks! And lordofflies, good to see you again. Yes, Buzzflash has been very generous to me with its linkage.

    Takes one to know one, eh, Newt?
    A “racist?” You, sir, are a hoot!
    Don’t you know, “smelt it, dealt it,”
    Oh! How sorely we felt it!
    On the Caucasian Diaspora’s route!

  7. madkane says:

    Keep’em coming, Steve. Thanks!

  8. Gingrich is a genius. Hatred toward him is vile and misplaced. Gingrich is the man we need int he White House. not this inadequate, inexperienced, inept, Obama.
