Newt Campaign Slogan Open Thread

Now that it’s a done deal that Newt Gingrich is running for President, the question arises: what will his campaign slogans be? Well, in a time of new media and crowdsourcing, it seems silly for Newt to go the old-fashioned route of having professionals craft them. I say we do the heavy lifting for him! It’s the least we can do, right?

So consider this an open thread for developing slogans for Newt Gingrich’s campaign.

I’ll start:

“Gingrich 2012: He will always love America. Unless it gets cancer.”

    Ah, yes, that cancer quip will strike a nerve or two.

    How about: “Newt ’12: Have you seen how pitiful the other GOP candidates are?”

    Speaking of which, Obama has to be the luckiest politician on earth. Even Clinton didn’t have this piss poor a GOP primary field with which to deal.

    Why look for a new slogan when so many golden oldies can be recycled?

    “Gingrich…. Now, more than ever”

    “Grits and Bits in 2012″

    “It’s twilight in my America”

    “Read My Lips: No new ideas.”

    “I did not have sex (some of) those women.”

    “I was for congressional pork before I was against it”

    And the masturbation part (i.e., this very campaign)

    Apologies to Alex. I somehow missed that he had said a variant of the one I mentioned.

    I’d rather war game his response to the inevitable debate question (if any non-sycophant is allowed to ask questions in a GOP primary debate): “You famously called the first Latina Supreme Court nominee a racist. You questioned Obama’s loyalty to American because his father was born in Kenya. Do you regret this and, if not, do you expect the 70 million or so folks who probably take issue with this sort of thing to vote for you?

    Seriously; without his substantial Latino support, McCain loses Texas and Arizona and gets destroyed in Nevada, Florida, Colorado, etc in 2008. Somewhat ought to ask Gingrich about his problem here before writing glowing pieces about his political rebirth.

    Note to anjin-san:

    Newts are not reptiles
    From wikipedia: (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newt)
    A newt is an amphibian of the Salamandridae family, although not all aquatic salamanders are considered newts. Newts are classified in the subfamily Pleurodelinae of the family Salamandridae, and are found in North America, Europe and Asia. Newts metamorphose through three distinct developmental life stages: aquatic larva, terrestrial juvenile (called an eft[1]), and adult. Adult newts have lizard-like bodies and may be either fully aquatic, living permanently in the water, or semi-aquatic, living terrestrially but returning to the water each year to breed.

    Newts differfrom reptiles in that they are slimey.
