"I pissed myself laughing with the 'base in space' verse" - comment on YouTube, an appropriate reaction to this satiric video.
(LOS ANGELES) - Well it looks like the video of the singer Adele roasting Newt Gingrich to the umpteenth degree may be a hoax, but even if it is, it is still funny and fitting and while we mistakenly billed it as real at first, it doesn't exactly kill the story.
According to what we initially were told, it happened during a commercial break at the Grammy Awards, and was not shown to regular viewers. Because everything you hear about Gingrich is accurate and because Hollywood and LA are home to many rationale and sane entertainers, it seemed more than plausible.
The song, real or not, nails Newt Gingrich's balls to the wall with no quarter and no reservations. Perhaps it did not take place at this event after all, where people who loved Whitney Houston were gathered, mourning the loss of an incredible friend and singer.
Any guy besides someone like Newt, Ditched his first sick wife and then number two, too Not an ethical shred in his oversized head Please just quit politics and find some more girls to bed
When it comes to Gingrich, there are no excuses for what we all know is wrong and never has so hateful of a toad existed in American politics, and that is really saying something. However it is doubted little and even diehard conservatives grimace when this wart of a man starts talking.
He isn't conservative about anything, sure he's a basher of the poor, and a proponent of anything resembling upper class dominance and basically fascism, but he isn't a representative of those who lean right but genuinely care about America. They are a lot seeking a leader and this bozo will never be one, he simply drains resources and wastes our time.
New Gingrich has no concept of shame, and he is not concerned for the mistakes he has made both personally and professionally, they were all vetted through the media nad played to the masses, he's a one man army against the poor and disenfranchised, the struggling and the suffering.
Whether it is real or a clever hoax, the man more than deserves this fitting and appropriate antitribute because he is little more than a dark cloud on the American political landscape.

The story was that this performance was NOT SEEN ON THE TV BROADCAST - that during a commercial break at the 2012 Grammy Awards, pop singer Adele sings a new version of her Grammy-winning hit "Someone Like You" trashing Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. This of course, is a joke.
I heard that you'd think it's cool If the poor kids mop up the floors at school I heard that your plan for the debt decline is to get the U.S. a Tiffany's credit line
Oh Newt, you're so big on faith But you've screwed around more than Henty the Eighth You say that you're not a political insider But you never left the web, you're still a spider
When you left the House in shame We hoped you'd realize that New for you, it should be over Any guy besides someone like Newt Ditched his first sick wife, and then number two, too
Not an ethical shred in his oversized head Please just quit politics, And find some more girls to bed Please quit politic and find more girls to bed
I know the Mormon's the other guy Funny that it's you who has juggled three wives Now you want a base up in outer space The only moon that you'll see is my ass in your face
You say that you're not a political insider But you never left the web You're still a spider When you left the house in shame we hoped you'd realize that
Newt for you it should be over Any guy besides someone like Newt Ditched his first sick wife, and then number two too Not an ethical shred in his oversized head Just quit politics and find some more girls to bed
If we compare your words to your acts It's you who avoids uncomfortable facts Your hypocrisy could fund its own SuperPAC Any guy besides someone like Newt Ditched his first sick wife, and then number two, too
