On A Serial Adulterer and Frequent Groom’s Temporary Fidelity Pledge and Other Meddling Things

Newt Gingrich:  Serial Adulterer, Serial Groom, and  Morally Bankrupt Gasbag.

He’s had three wives and cheated on the first two. He hasn’t cheated on the third one, so he says. At least not Yet. He signed Bob Vander Plaat’s (whomever the heck he is)  Pledge entitled “The Marriage Vow: A Declaration of  Dependence upon MARRIAGE and FAMILY“. He almost had to.

Here’s the Pledge, and of course, true to the  Sharia Clerics Religious Right”s need to control the country by forcing upon everyone their own Religious beliefs, even though they might not be yours,  it  includes a pledge to meddle into other people’s personal lives as well as the co-mingling Church and State. They even mention Sharia while not noticing the irony of it all. These are the same people who aren’t bothered at all that one of their most beloved “Justices” declared that women are not protected by the Constitution at all.  So who needs that stinkin’ ERA?

The Candidate Vow:

Therefore, in any elected or appointed capacity by which I may have the honor of serving our fellow citizens in these United States, I the undersigned do hereby solemnly vow to honor and to cherish, to defend and to uphold, the Institution of Marriage as only between one man and one woman. I vow to do so through my:

–Personal fidelity to my spouse.

–Respect for the marital bonds of others.

–Official fidelity to the U.S. Constitution, supporting the elevation of none but faithful constitutionalists as judges or justices.

–Vigorous opposition to any redefinition of the Institution of Marriage – faithful monogamy between one man and one woman – through statutory-, bureaucratic-, or court-imposed recognition of intimate unions which are bigamous, polygamous, polyandrous, same-sex, etc.

–Recognition of the overwhelming statistical evidence that married people enjoy better health, better sex, longer lives, greater financial stability, and that children raised by a mother and a father together experience better learning, less addiction, less legal trouble, and less extramarital pregnancy.

–Support for prompt reform of uneconomic, anti-marriage aspects of welfare policy, tax policy, and marital/divorce law, and extended “second chance” or “cooling-off” periods for those seeking a “quickie divorce.”

–Earnest, bona fide legal advocacy for the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) at the federal and state levels.

–Steadfast embrace of a federal Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which protects the definition of marriage as between one man and one woman in all of the United States.

–Humane protection of women and the innocent fruit of conjugal intimacy – our next generation of American children – from human trafficking, sexual slavery, seduction into promiscuity, and all forms of pornography and prostitution, infanticide, abortion and other types of coercion or stolen innocence.

–Support for the enactment of safeguards for all married and unmarried U.S. Military and National Guard personnel, especially our combat troops, from inappropriate same-gender or opposite-gender sexual harassment, adultery or intrusively intimate commingling among attracteds (restrooms, showers, barracks, tents, etc.); plus prompt termination of military policymakers who would expose American wives and daughters to rape or sexual harassment, torture, enslavement or sexual leveraging by the enemy in forward combat roles.

–Rejection of Sharia Islam and all other anti-woman, anti-human rights forms of totalitarian control.

–Recognition that robust childbearing and reproduction is beneficial to U.S. demographic, economic, strategic and actuarial health and security.

–Commitment to downsizing government and the enormous burden upon American families of the USA’s $14.3 trillion public debt, its $77 trillion in unfunded liabilities, its $1.5 trillion federal deficit, and its $3.5 trillion federal budget.

–Fierce defense of the First Amendment’s rights of Religious Liberty and Freedom of Speech, especially against the intolerance of any who would undermine law-abiding American citizens and institutions of faith and conscience for their adherence to, and defense of, faithful heterosexual monogamy.

Newt’s Wife.

You see, because he is running for President, Newt is now a member of the “Marriage is Sacred” club. These are self-described “Christians”  who strongly believe that Marriage is between one man and one woman. What they actually mean is one woman and one man at a time. If not for the ease of divorce, they would have to be polygamists to be happy.Having found the correct passage that gets them to  Pass Go as often as they want, these smorgasboard Christians realize that divorce is not acceptable unless one of the two commits adultery. So whenever they want to get rid of a spouse,  they use the adultery loophole, and all they have to do is find their next spouse up ahead and have sex with her or him.  This bunch loves them their One Man-One Woman at a time marriages. They believe marriage is very sacred.  That’s why they enjoy doing it over and over again. This sacred ritual needs to be protected! That’s why they strongly support  the “Defense Of Marriage Act”. It allows them to retain the sanctity of marriage over and over and over again while harassing and criticizing everybody else. The truth is barely half of US adults are married. And that’s a record low. People learn from watching these legal One Spouse At A Time For The Lord hypocrites. Nobody wants to be like them.

I call them “smorgasboard” Christians for a reason. They seem to use passages that suit them and rationalize away those that don’t.  Fundamentalist and Smorgasboard Christians can do that. They’re special. They have this loose leaf notebook where they get to put only the passages in their bible that matters, or something.  Apparently their loose leaf bible does not contain information on The Book of Life That Records What They Have Done. In this way, they can do whatever the hell they want and not have to worry about answering for their behavior later.  No matter what they do, they are “Saved”. They are free to live the worst lives ever,  just so long as they remember to say “I’m sorry” when they get caught doing something horrendous.  How cool is that? Even the 7 Deadly Sins work differently with these people.  For example, if you are a gluton like Jerry Falwell was, that one doesn’t count. What counts is someone else’s lust. Some deadly sins (read, “mine”) are just more deadly than others (read “yours”), you know? They “Fall short of the glory of God”. You, on the other hand, are going to hell.

No, wait! THIS is Newt’s Wife.

Newt is an expert at these  religious loopholes. He not only committed adultery in two marriages, he even asked his next wives to marry him before he was divorced — so there wasn’t too much of a gap in wifely services. Just ask Marianne Gingrich.

She says she should have seen the red flags. “He asked me to marry him way too early. And he wasn’t divorced yet. I should have known there was a problem.”

Within weeks or months?

“Within weeks.”

That’s flattering.

She looks skeptical. “It’s not so much a compliment to me. It tells you a little bit about him.”

Wrong Aagain. THIS is Newt’s Wife.

Just think:  Considering his pattern, The Pillsbury Doughboy could easily be the first President to enter the White House with one wife and leave with another, and he knows America knows it. So…. Newt has signed a pledge that, among other things,  keeps his current wife safe for 4 years, if he becomes President. I would imagine that if he doesn’t become President, all bets will be off. It must be a great time to be Newt’s wife. That is, so long as she doesn’t get sick. Everybody knows about the cancer of his first wife, but not many know he ditched his second wife  8 months after he found out she had MS.  Christian, my ass.

As if signing the above Church-Run- State Pledge didn’t go far enough. Newt wrote his own additional pledge in a letter, just to trump the existing pledge. Newt just loves to have the last word. Besides, who knows more about marriage than Newt. Goodness knows, he’s done it enough times to set the ‘example’. You  can read Gasbag Gingrich’s written load of crap in its entirety here.

To be sure, he pushed all the Right buttons, though.

His letter goes even further to ensure the inclusion of all the appropriate meddling-unconstitutional-promises- while -interfering- in- the- rights- of -others that so endear the religious-zealot. It’s the kind of pledge they love, because it demands that individual rights be honored just so long as they are rights they approve of.

No doubt about it. Newt’s letter will work fine for the Religious Right, because Newt is a Republican. If Newt were a Democrat, he would simply be written off as the serial-philandering pig he is.  But not The New Newt. No sir. He asked God for forgiveness and God said Yes, which means all of you must forgive him too. That’s how it works. You do whatever the hell you want to anybody and then ask for forgiveness when you get caught. Then, Poof! Your nastiness is wiped out and your slate is all clean so that you can do it all again. Rinse and Repeat. He even mentions the wildly popular “Right of people to rule themselves,” which translates nicely in reality into the  Our Right To Tell You What To Do. And then there’s the Old Standby about Judges Ruling The Way We Want Them To Instead of The Way Those Other People Want Them To.

Newt’s little pledge-addendum also includes the promise to defend the ‘unborn,’ which is also Very Important to meddlers who think laws don’t apply to them and they should just ignore them if they don’t Approve.  Are you 12 years-old and just raped by your Uncle Joe? Tough For You! Are you a rape victim? Well give birth to the psycho’s baby beaaatch. Obviously, you asked for it.  Are you currently about to die? Tough. You ain’t the Unborn.  Then there’s the promise to defend the unborn while not giving a shit if they starve to death  or have no health care once they are born is a Hallmark of the Religious Right.

Newt didn’t leave anything out in his personal pledge in which his own personal fidelity problem is buried. No sir. Let us not forget the critical “Right To Religious Freedom,” which translates into You Will Do What Our Religion Says You Will Do Or Else We Will Harass You Women just like Islam does only we aren’t allowed to kill you, dammit.  This also applies to you demon homosexuals. Why can’t you all be on the down-low like so many of those “Christians” are?  Then you could get caught and just ask for forgiveness after you finally no longer can get away with denying it. God likes that! You could do like Jimmy Swaggart did and just cry and forget about your habit of visiting hotel rooms with hookers. Or be like Ted Haggard and decide you are “Heterosexual with issues“. That’s how it’s done, silly!

Newt-The-Family-Values Guy signed his letter,

Sincerely,

Newt Gingrich

Priceless. The words, “Newt” and “Sincerely” in the same text.

They often try to say that homosexuality is a threat to marriage. Not so. People like Newt Gingrich and their multiple divorces are the real threat to marriage. Exactly how “Sacred” is marriage to a bunch of  hypocritical busy-bodies who find marriage so sacred they switch spouses as often as the ‘spirit’ moves them?

“He believes that what he says in public and how he lives don’t have to be connected. If you believe that, then yeah, you can run for president.”  –Marianne Gingrich

The Hallmark of The Religious Right AND  its leaders.

  1. Classic Uppity!
    That pledge is crazy. Didn’t you just LOVE this part?

    –Recognition that robust childbearing and reproduction is beneficial to U.S. demographic, economic, strategic and actuarial health and security.

    Robust childbearing and reproduction. Translation: Women should be barefoot and pregnant at all times. This will prevent them from working and being financially independent while at the same time supplying more serfs for our low wage jobs!
    What the hell?

  2. Mom, I always thought that organized religions love proflific reproduction because it makes more church members. Kind of explains the vatican’s stance on birth control too. It’s all about numbers. So you can see where they would think that over population would be great for THEIR ‘demographics” and ‘strategies’. It also keeps women as dependent on otherwise undesirable men as possible.

  3. I think all these Robust Childbearing afficionados of the penis variety should be offered a demonstration. You offer to shove an automatic umbrella up their asses and then press the button. Then you yank it out of them as quickly as possible, while open. Rinse and Repeat for the “Robust” and “Repeated” affect.

  4. The umbrella idea is good- but repeated kidney stones would get the point across too- prolonged agony you know?

  5. Yes I had enough of those and they are definitely memorable. But they won’t connect it to the joy of giving birth Robustly.

    I just cannot believe anybody with a brain or a heart would possibly imagine that a world that is already riddled with poverty and starvation would ‘benefit’ econonically by more of the same. These are the ultimately cruel people who obviously enjoy watching others suffer and die…just so long as they are born.

    These are the Pat Robertsons who step over the bodies to get to their diamond mines.

  6. Calista had best pray she doesn’t get sick. Newt leaves sick wives.

  7. Ironic that it’s called “adultery”, given how childishly the participants behave.😛

  8. Newt’s always got one on the bench warming up.

  9. Maybe Newt was Henry VIII in a former life. He does kinda look like him:

  10. Would love to know how many abortions he paid for in his lifetime.

  11. I can’t even comment on this shanty trash who calls himself a celebrity….

    Looks like something that lives in the woods and smells bad

  12. Excellent post Uppity. Absolutely with you on the Sharia irony. Absolutely with you on the fact that gay marriage doesn’t weaken or hurt the institution of marriage. Divorce weakens marriage. Infidelity weakens marriage. Mentally or physically abusing a spouse weakens marriage. But no–they are so twisted that they insist that letting more people marry each other weakens marriage.

    Lots more there to chew on–definitely worth multiple reads to get it all.

    As for the robust reproduction, throughout history it has been enforced as a tool to increase the “preferred population.” (For example, Jews in the Old Testament, Romans in the time of the Empire, and so on.) I’m willing to bet that this is the Right Wing thinking behind that one with the added benefit of oppressing the wimmins.

  13. Sophie- great point on the population- The church had absolutely nothing to say on birth control or abortion until the Roman elite showed a drastic decline in numbers due to not “reproducing robustly.” Only when the “upper crust” stopped having a baby every ten months did the church chime in.
    Thanks Constantine.

  14. Ironic that it’s called “adultery”, given how childishly the participants behave😆

  15. What’s the difference between Newt and this guy?

    http://sheikyermami.com/2011/12/15/muslim-cleric-face-of-a-woman-like-her-vagina/

    Women are a dime a dozen to these freaks.

  16. Beautiful post.

    I can’t take the guy seriously – his political career was over, what, 15 years ago? – and then he shows up like a bad penny. Then there’s the circus of his very public personal life; he’ll be better than the Kardashians for fodder if elected. I can’t believe he’s even a serious candidate.

    Seriously, a guy named Newt for Prez? Really? All I can think of is either the amphibian or the Lonesome Dove books. In this day and age, a Newt. Ugh.

    So for the GOP nom, we have a guy whose women are easily discarded and whose values are as easily changeable, a guy who ties his dog on top of the van and thinks it’s okay to travel like that (and he’s Mormon to boot), a guy who is an elected official but who can’t freakin’ talk in a debate (WTH?) or make any sense otherwise, an old fart who relies on a weak grassroots thing and handmade signs over freeways, a woman who is as hypocritical as she is crazy, and, based on the others listed on http://2012.republican-candidates.org/, a bunch of nobodies the press won’t give a half-second to.

    Nice job, GOP. Way to accumulate a really weak field. Dems? Your turn… oh, right. Obama 2012 indeed. *puke*

  17. I still remember Newt moralizing about Bill and Monica and how infidelity made you unfit to hold public office, all the while he was cheating on then-wife #2 with now-wife #3.

  18. Without going Preacher-Billy, all folks in this world are not perfect, and most all of our politicians are hypocrites and liars.What botheres me a lot, is the fact that a guy like Herman Cain can be accussed of certain behaviors, and the media, and those who don’t agree with him convict him before there is any solid proof. The fecal matter like Anthony Weenie, and to go old school, Teddy Kennedy, just get, got, free passes, for the most part. The usual rabid liberal blacks did not even ask to give Hermie the benefit of the doubt.
    It would be refreshing to hear a politician just tell the truth; good, bad, or just down right ugly, because the lying is always worse than the bad deed. Most Americans are really forgiving to those who admit there mistakes, make a sincere apology, and not lie.
    Anyway UW, I posted the Possum recipes! Thanks for that. What kind of wine do you drink with that? “Possum: The other other meat.”

  19. Hillbilly, the truth is our system is so corrupt and full of pigs and thieves, there is nowhere to turn and there are no longer honest people to run for anything anywhere. An honest person is a loser. And frankly, I didn’t think old Herman was an honest person either. So basically, our system of government representing The People died long ago.

    Oh man, Hillbilly, you want to drink beer with orrechiette and you want to drink win with possum?
    Might I suggest a nice box wine?

  20. myiq, that REALLY galls me. Hypocrite-squared.

  21. Allie, I will never believe the Republicans couldn’t have done better than this pathetic field….IF they had wanted to.

  22. Possum? I thought White Lightning or Jack went with possum?

  23. UW. This is why I believe our system is rigged. The GOP field blows goat turds! The vast majority of GOPers and DMCers are criminals. The Mafia are choir boys compared to them. This is why I have been changing up my blogging material a bit. It looks as if some of us Americans are going to have to physically remove these people by the scruffs of their necks.
    Box of wine? I can use the box to puke in! I stole that from Bubba J; Jeff Denhams character.🙂

  24. Well I’m thinking, John, if you throw the possum in the pot with some of that box wine you could make the Possum version of Julia Child’s Boeuf Bourguignon. This is sure to be a hit with all your friends as well as the dog.

    It’s really starting to look a lot like both of these parties have the same masters, John, and that the rest is just a show for us fools.

  25. McNorman, WTF on that link you posted. These Islamic Clerics are absolute sex-obsessed psychos.

  26. NES I just saw your links on Iowa polls. So Newt went boom. The freak. I guess he will just have to find a better wife for his next advancement. Obviously this one isn’t working out for him.

    I do wonder what caused his collapse though. Could it be that Iowans really do have something more than corn in their heads?

  27. Hill Billy, how can you say Weiner got away with it? He had to give up his seat. And, as for Teddy, well…he’s a Kennedy.
    Seriously, though, conservatives should stop crying about Herman Cain. If the guy thought he was being unfairly accused, he should stood up and fought the allegations. But, he went without so much as a peep…that speaks volumes.

  28. I think the Iowans are finally starting to focus on electability. Also, they pride themselves on selecting winners and since 2012 looks like a GOP year, they want to get it right.

  29. Ditto on the WTF to McNorman on that link. Uh, everywhere I clicked I had to move to stop laughing out loud. Did that come to you via a porn site McN?

  30. I vote for PMM’s Hillbilly Stew. Any meat is allowed, except for “Newt”!
    No amphipians for me.

    http://wp.me/p1M1I6-OU

  31. Possum wine pairing advice.

    My best suggestion would be the one called “I can’t believe it’s not vinegar”

  32. My best suggestion would be the one called “I can’t believe it’s not vinegar”

    Ding Ding Ding! She made my coffee come out of my nose.

  33. Yeah Weiner didn’t get away with it but he sure TRIED. But he was an all time hypocrite because he was a advocate for women. That disgusted me even more than his fugly crooked dick.

    Kennedy, well I’m sorry but he got away with A LOT. I could do hours on it. Champion of women, yet he never met one he wouldn’t pork. Champion of the poor just so long as they didn’t live near him. Champion of alternative energy just so long as those windmills couldn’t be seen by his compound. Not to mention he got away with manslaughter as a minimum and murder as a maximum.

    And Cain was a pig only he was hoping nobody would notice. Not that he’s any different. Women are always the liars in industry. men are always pure of heart. And the knife ran away with the spoon. Deny unless there are photos. That’s the rule. Cain’s wife looks like a lovely long-suffering woman living with a macho pig. I personally hope she finally kills him in his sleep so she might live the rest of her life in dignity and peace.

  34. No Uppity, you don’t yank the open umbrella out of them. You draw it out ever so slowly, all the while yelling “Don’t push yet, don’t push yet””
    Then when the pain is beyond intolerable you tell them to lie still while you are pulling it out or they will be paralyzed for life by the epidural. That’s what all these “barefoot and pregnant” cretins deserve.

  35. “Newt” is such an appropriate nickname for Gingrich. He does remind me of a slimy cold-blooded thing that crawled out from under a rock. 😈

  36. WTF on that link you posted. These Islamic Clerics are absolute sex-obsessed psychos

    I couldn’t agree more. It’s an obsession UW. Real sickos.

  37. Might I suggest a nice box wine?

    I can’t afford that fancy boxed stuff. I buy it by the bucket.

  38. @SWPAnnA

    No, I didn’t find it on a porn site. lol I peruse the interwebs while waiting for a human to speak with at work. Someone else linked to it saying that these ass backwards shack (pasture) freaks have no limit when it comes to controlling women.

  39. HT HireHeels http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-16201961

  40. And FYI for all who have asked – Angel is fine – but old. I have been working my ass off but am systemically sick in some way – not sure how but I have a Dr. Appt on Tuesday and Dentist tomorrow; and no Lorac, I haven’t thrown you over for anyone. I lurk, eat Tums and go to work. I am sick as can be. Not flu, but something terribly WRONG with my stomach/liver/digestion et al. Not a happy camper on any front. I WILL get a header done, eventually. Uppity – just change it for another one if you want. I really am not so well.

    More over the weekend. XOXO

  41. Aww Geeezz, as sick as this country is getting, we still can’t compete with the rest of the world! FF, that’s some article you linked to.

    FF–feel better.

  42. Sophie – thnx

  43. FF get some well deserved rest. You deserve it.

  44. FF, you must report back here on Tuesday!!! You make sure you get to that MD!

    xxoo

  45. FF01–I don’t know what your stomach problem is, but I have acid reflux. My doctor prescribed Aciphex and Gaviscon. The first is an acid reducer, the second an antacid, which has extra ingredients that form a barrier to block acid from coming back up. They work well for me.

    Aciphex requires a prescription, but Gaviscon can be bought over the counter. It’s kinda pricey, but Wal-Mart sells a generic version at about half the price–though WM recently changed the flavor and it doesn’t taste quite as good as their old generic version did.😛

  46. I haven’t watched the news for awhile now because I kind of ODed on it – but I caught the end of the debate, and now Hannity is interviewing some of the candidates. Right now it’s Romney, and he asked about the $10,000 bet in the last debate. Here’s my paraphrase:

    Hannity: What was all the hubbub about your $10,000 bet? I’ve done that lots of time on air! Did the hubbub surprise you?

    Romney: Yes, I didn’t expect that, but you can never know what people are going to focus on.

    Me: you just dug yourself in deeper on the “out off touch, privileged, and clueless” charge!

  47. They let Huntsman come to this debate. I’m glad. I like him best.

    Oh, and in his Hannity interview, that round guy (the subject of UW’s post!) said if he becomes president, he’ll defund planned parenthood and work to make all abortion illegal. We are people at conception. Well, I guess if he wants poor high schoolers to be forced to work at school, maybe he should find a job for those cells, too, since they’re people. They’re being pretty lazy for 9 months in the womb – make those little people be productive!

  48. My favorite part of the debate was that two of my favorite interviewers were there – Megyn Kelly and Brett Baier. I will always love Brett Baier for being the only person in history to interview Obama without the softballs.

  49. I’m worried about FF. I don’t like to think of her suffering every day.

  50. Ok, obamakas now?

  51. I hope FF has something that can be remedied quickly and easily. Gut stuff is just nasty.

  52. http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Middle-East/2011/1215/Exclusive-Iran-hijacked-US-drone-says-Iranian-engineer

    Exclusive: Iran hijacked US drone, says Iranian engineer

    In an exclusive interview, an engineer working to unlock the secrets of the captured RQ-170 Sentinel says they exploited a known vulnerability and tricked the US drone into landing in Iran.

  53. How nice. Our big secret technology has known vulnerabilities and we did nothing about it.

  54. Hmmm… this is an interesting idea – if it is considered an acceptable option to go in and strike at a downed drone, this seems like a simpler and less dangerous method to do it. Either way you wouldn’t know if there were any innocent people in the immediate area, so the self-destruct device would be safer for us anyway, and more likely to succeed….

    http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/63602/it-was-one-of-those-obama-moments-when-i-buried-my-face-in-my-hands-and-howled/#more-63602

    Here’s another question: Since we do NOT want hostile nations to get their hands on such sensitive and proprietary technology, isn’t it possible to install a self-destruct device that, should the drone fail — or be brought down by some clever Iranian software ingenuity — could be blown up? If the drone goes down, the operators could immediately hit the destruct button and be done with it. Not a good idea? Why not? And, if it is a good idea, why isn’t it implemented?

  55. Americans face Guantánamo detention after Obama climbdown

    Barack Obama has abandoned a commitment to veto a new security law that allows the military to indefinitely detain without trial American terrorism suspects arrested on US soil who could then be shipped to Guantánamo Bay.

    Human rights groups accused the president of deserting his principles and disregarding the long-established principle that the military is not used in domestic policing. The legislation has also been strongly criticised by libertarians on the right angered at the stripping of individual rights for the duration of “a war that appears to have no end”.

    The law, contained in the defence authorisation bill that funds the US military, effectively extends the battlefield in the “war on terror” to the US and applies the established principle that combatants in any war are subject to military detention.

    The legislation’s supporters in Congress say it simply codifies existing practice, such as the indefinite detention of alleged terrorists at Guantánamo Bay. But the law’s critics describe it as a draconian piece of legislation that extends the reach of detention without trial to include US citizens arrested in their own country.

    Paul was backed by Senator Dianne Feinstein.

    “Congress is essentially authorising the indefinite imprisonment of American citizens, without charge,” she said. “We are not a nation that locks up its citizens without charge.”

    In fact, the heads of several security agencies, including the FBI, CIA, the director of national intelligence and the attorney general objected to the legislation. The Pentagon also said it was against the bill.

  57. Freedom Fairy!!!!!!!!!!! I had no idea you were feeling sick! And for dog sake don’t worry about headers!

  58. If this article is true, this is disgusting. I would be so pissed if a “friend” gave my email to someone else in order to harass me!

    http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2011/12/14/obama-campaign-collecting-republican-emails/

    The Obama presidential campaign is launching an effort to collect Republican email addresses by inviting its supporters to submit information about their Republican associates to the Obama 2012 website.

    The effort could help the Obama campaign build a database that would enable it to target Republican voters during the general election campaign. But, more perniciously, it could also become part of an Democratic effort to influence Republican primary voters to select a candidate Democrats think Obama could most easily defeat.

    The Democratic National Committee last month released a video that seemed designed to damage Mitt Romney, the GOP candidate feared most by the Obama campaign.

    The Obama information collection effort is cast under the mischievous guise of asking Obama supporters to “have a little fun at the expense of a Republican in your life” by signing them up to get an email from the Obama campaign ribbing them for having “inspired” the Obama supporter to donate.

  59. The McCain camp had my email address too. It’s what they do. It’s what everybody does. You give your email address to any online vendor and the same thing happens as well. It’s how it is. Is it ethical? No. And if it pisses us off, spammers and email harvesters don’t really care. When you register for one of their sites, you belong to them and their ‘affiliates’. You are that “friend” obama wants them to take advantage of.

    The best thing to do with these creepy politicians is to use a special yahoo address just for the lot of them and then do what I did: Delete the address. Because they NEVER remove your name from their harvest list. And that is what it is, a harvest list. Remember my posts in 2008 when I was trying to get that fucking DNC to leave me alone? I would complete their ‘unsubscribe’ over and over again and they would still harass me. THen I started getting emails from that POS Howard Dean and the other individual dipwads I couldn’t stand. So I cancelled them my way. I deleted the address and let them bounce.

  60. I got rid of the Democrats’ US mail spam too. I just kept sending them back with nothing in them except a message that said they blow goats.

  61. The Obama information collection effort is cast under the mischievous guise of asking Obama supporters to “have a little fun at the expense of a Republican in your life” by signing them up to get an email from the Obama campaign ribbing them for having “inspired” the Obama supporter to donate.

    Sadistic and malicious. How Very Obama.

    If anybody defeats this creep, it will be himself and his freaky malodorous sycophants.

  64. Hi Uppity! The first picture you have of Newt’s first wife is actually his daughter by his first wife, Jackie Gingrich Cushman. Here is a link to an old picture of Newt’s first wife who was his high school geometry teacher. http://motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2011/05/newt-gingrich-and-hospital-room. His problems started early in his life.

  65. Thanks Salin, which one in that pic is the wife, the one next to him or the one next to her?
