Bigot of the Week Award: January 20, Newt Gingrich (Again)

20 Jan

Bigot of the Week

Our poor old, sad old, dear old bigoted Newt!  He has earned many a BWA here on TSM.  Our Newt has been successfully married three times: leaving one cancer-ridden wife for the woman he was having an affair with and then leaving his second wife for a new, younger, trade-in model. (Gee, do you think this smacks of misogyny and complete objectification of women?) Clearly his understanding of the institution of marriage makes him an expert on the subject.

Now allegations have come forward that he asked wife number two to have an open marriage.  Quite honestly, I really don’t care if he and his second wife had an open marriage as long as it was consensual.  What does put me into a rage is the hypocrisy!  Newt is a sexist, racist, homophobe who works hard to deny people civil rights such as marriage equality.  Once again his racism, sexism, and homophobia earn his another BWA.

And to turn our stomachs even more, I have to give Dr. Pepper a dishonorable mention this week.  The blatant sexism and misogyny in their new commercial made me spit up!  If you can stomach it, click here to see the commercial and then please voice your disappointment with Dr. Pepper.

Are you kidding me with this?

    My cousin put on facebook “I like how newt leans on the podium as he casually drops philosophical bombs in the debate” In my head I responded “where you dropped on your head as a child?”
