Here's Why Newt Gingrich's Campaign Staff Quit


Probably not the best idea to sun your bod on a rock in Mykonos just as the nomination campaign is heating up. (via TMZ)

  3. he's no one I'd ever vote for... but to be honest, its nice to see that the guy can relax.

  4. Are you making a crack because he (like many of us) is not hot enough to be an underwear model?? Not all of us queers are gymbots so the headline is insulting if that is what you infer.

  5. Push him back in the water - he's gonna die!!
    Oh wait.. on second thought.

  6. Well he needs to to find a way to spend all those money he made by scamming people with his $5000 Newt Gingrich-approved certificates/awards!

  8. @Brokebackvol No, that was not what I was inferring.

  9. i love the TMZ typo:
    "TMZ has obtained a photo of a glistening Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich laying topless on a beach in Greece ... days before his campaign staff quit over the timing of his two-week vacation."

    He's NOT "laying" topless...or at least it doesn't appear that he is. LOL I think they mean to say lying topless.
    Then again perhaps he's having sex with an invisible person?

  12. nice choice of island though, perhaps his wife's circle of gay friends is having an effect on his taste...

  13. Damn, Andy, put pics like that after the jump next time, PLEASE.

  14. And he choses Mykonos, the gay island, of all of Greece's islands.

  15. Mykonos! Really? One of the most popular gay resorts in South Europe! Small island full of gay tourists sun bathing.

  16. Oddly hairless. Maybe he waxes.

  17. Too bad that rock isn't int the middle of the South Pacific surrounded by hungry sharks.

  18. @ JIM

    Please do you even KNOW Conservatives? They are ALWAYS going away on holidays, eating out, using helicopters rides all on tax payers money!

    These guys LOVE the good life!!

  19. I could have gone my whole life without seeing that.

  20. It's Newt....hate him for that. Once again the vapid among us show the ageist, sizeist undercurrent in LGBT land. At least he isn't hairy. We would have had to listen to all the crap from the disgusted masses who didn't get the memo at the last White Party that, yes, humans are supposed to be hairy.

  21. i have to agree with the previous posts; MYKONOS !!!!!!.........
    Dude, are you serious ?

    Posted by: JackFknTwist | Jun 15, 2011 12:35:24 PM

  22. It actually doesn't look like him. What's with the hair?

  23. Has Cokie Roberts bashed him yet for vacationing in exotic Mykonos instead of Myrtle Beach?

  24. @BROKEBACKVOL Get a grip! I saw the headline and thought "yeah, ol' Newt's letting his campaign staff do the dirty work while he and the Mrs. frolic in the Greek isles".

    Never thought for one second that Andy was trying to comment on Mr. Gingrich's physical appearance.

  25. I know obscenity when I see obscenity. And that is obscene.
