Newt’s Fishy Excuses

Have you ever answered a “what’s your worst fault” question from a prospective employer by mentioning a positive trait?

Newt Gingrich is apparently familiar with that technique. What else can explain the excuses he gave for having been unfaithful to two sick wives? It seems his infidelity was “partially driven by how passionately [he] felt about this country” and the fact that he “worked far too hard.”

So, you ready to hire him for the next White House opening? What about dog catcher?

Newt’s Fishy Excuses
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Mr. Newt has an oddball excuse
For something that’s close to abuse:
Abandoning wives
Who were ill just derives
From his working too hard? How obtuse!

(More Newt Gingrich humor here.)

    That Newt is a real piece of work
    And when it comes to women, he’s a jerk
    Love em when they fine
    Bail in the nick of time
    And as to his infidelity? “Twas just a quirk”

    Nice one Mad. I’ve been kind of Jonesing for a limerick fix so here’s a two effort.

    A serial cheater named Newt
    When questioned about his pursuit
    Of women not his
    Told a whopper, ’tis this
    I’m a patriot…, man what a beaut

    Who’d want Newt is my biggest question
    He’d leave you at just the suggestion
    That you’re getting sick
    So won’t suck his #%*!
    Be smart ladies, feign indigestion
