Are you as sad as Newt is about the curtains coming down on his campaign? If so, let us know what you think Newt’s next act should be. We like him for Zoo Czar or Moon Ambassador. Or, Dancing With the Stars, anyone?

Reblog and tell us on Tumblr, on Twitter with hashtag #NewtsNextAct, or on Facebook.

He’s thinner, he’s better looking, he’s younger. But you asked me if I had anyone who could play me in a movie … why not go for Brad Pitt?

A mere 40 years ago, beach volleyball was just beginning. No bureaucrat would have invented it, and that’s what freedom is all about.
One of the less offensive gems from our list of Newt Gingrich’s craziest comments he’s made through the years.

I never heard of Libya. I didn’t know whether that CNN dude’s name was Wolf or Blitz. And my only training for running the #1 nation in the world was running its #8 pizza chain. Yet none of that, I repeat, none of that disqualified me. In fact, I was the front-fucking-runner, as long as I kept my 9-9-9 in my pants. (I have no idea what I meant by that—I just like saying 9-9-9.)

Newt’s surge is causing some religious-right Republicans to to redefine their family values. Michelle Goldberg looks into how they’re learning to love the adulterous, thrice-married former speaker.

"I see a lot of parallels between King David and Newt Gingrich, two extraordinary men gifted by God, whose lives include very high highs and very low lows," Deace says. David, after all, committed adultery with the ravishing Bathsheba, then had her husband killed, among other transgressions. The Bible makes room for complicated, morally compromised heroes.

Topless Newt Gingrich — On a Rock, In a Hard Place

Bravo, TMZ. Gingrich relaxes in Mykonos days before his campaign exoplodes.

UPDATE: Oops, Gingrich’s team denied that the above photo was of the GOP hopeful, and TMZ has deleted the photo. That’s kind of disappointing.
