protein wisdom’s Republican National Convention coverage, 12

Those of you who think Republicans have no sense of humor should’ve seen Newt Gingrich last night.  Because I’m here to tell you, if anybody does a better impression of Jeff Foxworthy purchasing gefilte fish, I sure haven’t seen it.

“…So what you’re sayin’ is, that thar jelly surroundin’ the fish ball…that’s intentional?”

Christ, I’m still laughing.

  1. “And you call yourselves the chosen people…”


  2. You know … I can actually imagine it.  And it works for me.

  3. What a strange coincidence.  I just finished Newt’s book “Oy!  Gefilte Fish and the Civil War, how one bad meal lost the Confederacy.”

    His account of a catering wagon full of gefilte fish, cream cheese and bagels left in the sun the afternoon before the battle of Gettysburg is meticulously researched and documented.  I recommend it highly, though sadly it’s now out of print.

  4. The only thing that ruins the joke is that Gingrich isn’t from Georgia – he was born in Pennsylvania.  Now, if you’d said Richard Shelby …..

    Sigh. Everyone’s a critic.

    By the way, since you’re there in NY, is it true Hillary infiltrated the convention dressed as the ghost of Strom Thurmond?


  5. Shhh. Don’t let the Goyim know that the jelly is the source of our special Jew superpowers.

    BTW: I have a number of Gmail invites to give out. I’ll send one to the first few email requests I get. Bonus consideration for anyone who can get me some Red Pills. Or Sea Monkeys.

  6. Somehow Newt had the idea gefilte fish was like lutefisk.

    Poor, deluded man.

  7. Gefilte is great, but my drywall just can’t handle the horseradish farts.

  8. Ugh.  Family reunion memories of lutefisk.  Not good.  To say nothing of the aquavit chasers.
