  1. Gingrich, in the midst of railing against history, brought low by his own. While it's immensely satisfying to see, the fact that we still have to read these florid tribal stylings in public by this grotesque caricature of a human legislator brings continual disgrace on this century and the previous one which had the misfortune to have birthed him.

    1. Many Twitterers have observed that in the original McNaughton (as well as this fine parody), what is supposed to look like a thumb holding the palette could indeed be perceived as another part of the presidential corpus.

  2. True fact:

    Eight of the nine currently trending tweets worldwide have to do with Spiderman, or lack thereof.
    The ninth involves 'Heath' and I have no fucking clue…………
