Oh dear: Newt Gingrich tweets photo of himself with fossil, mockage ensues

Oof. Newt’s known for being a smart guy, but tweeting out this photo probably wasn’t among his greatest ideas:

Plenty of Twitterers were more than happy to step up to the plate:

Several people found the photo to be rather symbolic:


  • FIRE THEM ALL- 2014

    Gotta love the way the left mocks everything, when they are done being useful idiots for the communist regime they will be the first to go.

    • TonyMontana3

      Aww….are you gonna cry? Are the left wingers too mean?

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        Cry? When you’re the first to go? Maybe.

  • Libs_R_Wrong

    For a moment I thought it would be the photo of Newt sitting beside Pelosi. :)

  • Warren_28

    I don’t understand what’s wrong with the picture. I’m sure when it was discovered, the scientist weren’t yucking it up like ten year-olds. Looks cool to me.


    That “which is the fossil” joke was the most obvious ever, yet several still said it. Proving once again, people (mostly on the left) are unimaginative and not funny.

    • Kevin Krom

      Maybe, but it’s relatively harmless fun, Newt did kind of set himself up for it, and I have no doubt that you’d see much the same thing the other way had it been, say, Pelosi doing the same thing.

      I’m sure Newt is laughing about it himself, at this point.

      • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

        “Fossil holding fossil”?

    • redheadgrl

      I thought it was kinda funny. :)


        I don’t even like Gingrich. lol I just knew there would be a million tweets with the same joke.

          what’s not to like? He’s a great man and has served this country for 54 years.

  • KornKing

    I didn’t know Harry Reid was in Texas today.

  • IfYouHaveToAsk

    Lwings look up self deprecating. You might learn something about humor.

  • People Corporation

    Moochies hip replacement is ready.

  • v1cious

    What’s so special about this picture? All I see is a couple of fossils. Did I miss something?

  • Peyton

    The Dinosaur that fossil is from… As extinct as America will be under Obama.

  • JeanaKHC

    Come on, ya’ll! Some of those tweets were humorous….and I like Newt. Heck! I voted for him in the primaries.

  • my preciousss!!

    fossil looks like a #1, isn’t it?
    pic says: “i’m the oldest #1 ever” heh.

    several wrote “the jokes write themselves” or “too many jokes on this one to begin” Seriously? So tell us some you dummies.
    So funny they take the time to type something to APPEAR as if they have something to say, but bottom line, they got nuttin’.

    Leave Newt alone.
