Posted on 04/13/2012 8:02:00 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
Governor, Its Speaker Gingrichs office.
Romney takes the phone.
GINGRICH AIDE (V.O.)
Hold for Speaker Gingrich.
Callista, is that you?
Reveal CALLISTA GINGRICH (40s, looks way over her head). Shes at a desk with NEWT GINGRICH (60s, looks 70s), dapper in his suit (Targets Expensive Collection, $89 $69 via Groupon).
No, its not me. Its not like we had to fire our staff because we ran out of money.
A lot of folks are suffering from being out of money, and Ill tell you what I tell them: I have no idea what youre talking about. End personal anecdote No. 12.
She hands the phone to Newt.
Mitt! Dont have much time, things are really busy here.
Reveal Newts desk is in the furniture section of Costco. Callista makes busy office noises.
Im dead serious. You conceding to me is the kind of big idea that Ive made the hallmark of my campaign. Give me your delegates and become my vice-presidential nominee.
Im not conceding to you. This isnt something, like abortion rights, that you can just change your mind about.
Hear me out. Ive already got a slogan for us: Newt and Mitt: Two Guys Without First Names for America. You know, America was a guys first name, too, so theres a real historical resonance. Or we could combine our names, like a celebrity couple Newtt!
Thats just your name.
But with two Ts!! Were so much alike. You said you didnt care about the very poor; I said poor kids should be janitors. Together we will wage the war on poverty from the other side! Newtt!

But don't click the link. Do not read this. Unless you're high.
The Times seems happy with the primary results.
Why did you?
Judging by the excerpt. I don't think there is a drug made to match the madness of liberalism.
Thanks, I didn’t.
Is this the same ETAN COHEN who wrote “Tropic Thunder” and “Idiocracy”?
Those were funny...this is stooopud.
This reads like it was written by a group of middle school smarta$$es who wanted to please their NEA drill sergeant.
Or the one who did Fargo? I loved that movie.
The next media narrative will be to put Romney up over Obama enough to psyche out any conservative opposition.
They will be giving out carrots or a thump on the head to those who do not submit to the narrative.
If a ham sandwich can beat Obama right now, let us do it with the man for the job, who is actually an anti-establishment conservative, whom the socialist GOP-E and the Marxists despise.
Romney is the godfather to moral Marxism, on the issue of establishing their favorite planks; Obamacare; manipulating the Catholic Church in Massachusettes as is happening today; signing off on gay marriages there; individual mandates, and certainly deserves not support, but revulsion.
1144 is not here yet.
No...I made that mistake before.
The Coen brothers wrote/produced Fargo. Joel and Ethan Coen. Move the “h” from the first to the last name and you get the guy who wrote this column.
Myth will be 'responsible' and answerable for it all. No tale will go untold. Obama will have personal revelations about being traumatized by Mormon missionaries while in Hawaii and Indonesia. Every financial error that has ever occured within an individual temple, every error in judgement by an elder, every instance of sin at any level is going to be taken apart and wondered about. The Concern Troll aspect of Times journalism is going to reach levels of cataclysmic proportion that will make Orson Welles envious.
The NY TImes and liberal journalists everywhere are salivating at the prospect of a Romney candidacy. I can see the political cartoons of Myth sitting next to McCain in a bar watching CNN and murmuring, "Remember when THEY liked us?"
Why the RNC and the GOP-e can't see this scenario is just beyond me. It will come to be known as the ultimate example of not being able to see the war from the enemies perspective. Political scientists will study this campaign for decades. The analogy between the Kerry campaign of 2004 and Myth's campaign of 2012 are similar and the PTB that ran both campaigns are blind to it.
That's a killer line!
Nurse Ratched as a teacher.
Thanks Responsibility2nd, looks like medical marijuana is catching on. ;’)
