Newt Gingrich Can’t Work Out What His Phone Is

"Here at Gingrich Productions, we've spent weeks figuring out," ponders Newt Gingrich. "What do you call this?" It's a phone, Newt. "But think about it. If it's taking pictures, it's not a cellphone. If you can get Wikipedia or go to Google, that's not a cellphone." Sigh.

Newt Gingrich’s Fantasy Moon Base Is Illegal [Moon]

Not only is Newt's plan for lunar statehood completely insane—it's also against the law! Not just any law, but space law, the most powerful of all laws, because it comes from the sky. Sorry, Newt. More »

Republican Presidential candidates ponder Apple outsourcing gadget-making to China

Apple received a mention in a big way during CNN’s Southern Republican Presidential Debate held yesterday at the North Charleston Coliseum in South Carolina. The debate featured Republican Presidential candidates Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, and Rick Santorum. At one point (mark 1:01:55), CNN host John King asked the candidates in the light of the ongoing Foxconn controversy to lay out their plans to bring back manufacturing jobs to the United States.

More precisely, King zeroed in on the fact that Apple is “a breathtakingly important American company” that employs most of its workforce in retail stores, but hires half a million low-paid workers through its Far East suppliers and contract manufacturers that actually assemble its products (just like any other technology company does, mind you). Santorum has “a plan in place” to put this strategy to an end (quote right below the fold), as do other candidates. They also talked SOPA and discussed other burning issues. Just watch the clip…

Apple, you have all those employees over there, you make all those profits over there. If you want to bring that money back, right now you have to pay 35 percent tax. Under our plan, if you bring it back and invest in the plant equipment here in Charleston – you pay nothing. Put that money to work, invest it and you pay nothing – it’s a powerful incentive.

Newt Gingrich Is Bizarrely Terrified of a Fake Sci-Fi Weapon [Rant]

Moon mining isn't the only thing election and adultery enthusiast Newt Gingrich is worried about—the GOP candidate has repeatedly, publicly, manically claimed that America is on the verge of being hit with an electromagnetic pulse attack. This is crazy. More »
