Newt Gingrich Has 'Dancing Queen' As Ringtone, Still a Terrible Person
Are you psyched for the next seventeen months of presidential candidate news bytes? Remember, the first primary is still a summer and a fall and a winter away, and here's the kind of thing you're going to be seeing a lot,to fill the gaping news hole: "Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich briefly stopped a campaign event here to shut off his phone as his ringtone sounded ABBA’s 'Dancing Queen.'" And then Newt briefly ran to the hospital to divorce everybody there being treated for cancer. And then he peed on somebody who quoted whatever he said last week. Campaign 2012, everybody!
The song is from the musical “Mamma Mia.” Gingrich said later that he is a big fan of the movie version, starring Meryl Streep, and that his wife, Callista, warned him that the ringtone was going to get him in trouble.
“It’s just fun,” Gingrich said.
And then he divorced Callista because she is not fun anymore because she got old and might someday get cancer.
