Adele's Trashing of Newt Gingrich at Grammys Simply a Hoax

"I pissed myself laughing with the 'base in space' verse" - comment on YouTube, an appropriate reaction to this satiric video.

(LOS ANGELES) - Well it looks like the video of the singer Adele roasting Newt Gingrich to the umpteenth degree may be a hoax, but even if it is, it is still funny and fitting and while we mistakenly billed it as real at first, it doesn't exactly kill the story.

According to what we initially were told, it happened during a commercial break at the Grammy Awards, and was not shown to regular viewers. Because everything you hear about Gingrich is accurate and because Hollywood and LA are home to many rationale and sane entertainers, it seemed more than plausible.

The song, real or not, nails Newt Gingrich's balls to the wall with no quarter and no reservations. Perhaps it did not take place at this event after all, where people who loved Whitney Houston were gathered, mourning the loss of an incredible friend and singer.

Any guy besides someone like Newt,
Ditched his first sick wife and then number two, too
Not an ethical shred in his oversized head
Please just quit politics and find some more girls to bed

When it comes to Gingrich, there are no excuses for what we all know is wrong and never has so hateful of a toad existed in American politics, and that is really saying something. However it is doubted little and even diehard conservatives grimace when this wart of a man starts talking.

He isn't conservative about anything, sure he's a basher of the poor, and a proponent of anything resembling upper class dominance and basically fascism, but he isn't a representative of those who lean right but genuinely care about America. They are a lot seeking a leader and this bozo will never be one, he simply drains resources and wastes our time.

New Gingrich has no concept of shame, and he is not concerned for the mistakes he has made both personally and professionally, they were all vetted through the media nad played to the masses, he's a one man army against the poor and disenfranchised, the struggling and the suffering.

Whether it is real or a clever hoax, the man more than deserves this fitting and appropriate antitribute because he is little more than a dark cloud on the American political landscape.

The story was that this performance was NOT SEEN ON THE TV BROADCAST - that during a commercial break at the 2012 Grammy Awards, pop singer Adele sings a new version of her Grammy-winning hit "Someone Like You" trashing Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich. This of course, is a joke.

Lyrics

I heard that you'd think it's cool
If the poor kids mop up the floors at school
I heard that your plan for the debt decline is to get the
U.S. a Tiffany's credit line

Oh Newt, you're so big on faith
But you've screwed around more than Henty the Eighth
You say that you're not a political insider
But you never left the web, you're still a spider

When you left the House in shame
We hoped you'd realize that New for you, it should be over
Any guy besides someone like Newt
Ditched his first sick wife, and then number two, too

Not an ethical shred in his oversized head
Please just quit politics,
And find some more girls to bed
Please quit politic and find more girls to bed

I know the Mormon's the other guy
Funny that it's you who has juggled three wives
Now you want a base up in outer space
The only moon that you'll see is my ass in your face

You say that you're not a political insider
But you never left the web
You're still a spider
When you left the house in shame we hoped you'd realize that

Newt for you it should be over
Any guy besides someone like Newt
Ditched his first sick wife, and then number two too
Not an ethical shred in his oversized head
Just quit politics and find some more girls to bed

If we compare your words to your acts
It's you who avoids uncomfortable facts
Your hypocrisy could fund its own SuperPAC
Any guy besides someone like Newt
Ditched his first sick wife, and then number two, too

It was not "blathering". I'm a first time visitor to your site and had a comment on a bizarre, and clearly fake, article and an analysis that seemed way off the mark. If you don't like being called out for your ridiculous journalism...then maybe you shouldn’t run this site. I'd understand if there would have been an inappropriate word or defamatory statement, but you shouldn’t edit a post because it points out something you don't like. Interaction between viewers and writers is a good thing. There is nothing like a little banter to grow traffic.

Tim King: For what it's worth, most of my journalism is at least, less ridiculous... I am not happy about the way this went, on my part obviously.  Most of what we do is very serious life and death stuff... and I like lighthearted things like this.  Of course it turned out to be less light and less filling and it didn't exactly taste great,  I guess this is my near-beer of articles.

Adele is a great singer from the UK, and at 23 I can only wonder what her background on our country really is? I am not a fan of Newt, and do wonder why he is running for president, mainly because he was actually the president in "deed" when he was speaker. That is, Clinton followed Newt's lead and signed all his legislation, and like a true politician, Clinton took credit for something he was not part of in creating. Oh, and Newt was never found guilty of any ethical violations, and why he paid for the investigative costs simply don't make sense. How about Charlie Rangel, Maxine Waters, and all those other democrats under investigation? Bottom line, when it comes to actual corruption and abuse of power, look at the actual evidence, for opinions and allegations are merely suppositions that have no weight in terms of reliability/validity. Whoever the GOP nominee becomes, that person will be sworn in as president, then as a nation we can then begin the process of healing. If no war began against Iran by that time, then there never will be a war, for our enemies only go after weakness, and we currently have a very weak president. Much danger faces us between now and November.

you edit out comments...bravo.

Editor: I'm sorry, do you run Salem-News.com?  No, you don't, and while I checked this story and have no idea what you are talking about, I find it interesting because the only comments we 'edit' are blatherings we'd never even consider posting.  I hope that clarifies things..

Maybe Paula Jones, Katherine Willey and many more can do some ballads about sexual harrassment, even allegations of rape, and lying under oath to a federal judge? Even a quick song titled "Rose Law Firm Billing Records, Where are you? Oh, there you are!" Another ballad could be based on the 150 Clintonites that took the 5th? Oh, Eric Holder's people are doing the same in congress now. In terms of a line of credit for a private citizen, is that really much of a concern than say how much us taxpayers got stuck with for expensive 5+ Star vacations that had nothing to do with state affairs via current WH First Lady? Or Chicago real estate deals? Or bundling of political donations from bankrupt green energy companies the dems financed with our taxes? Etc.?

"EDITOR: Actually, it did happen." Hehe. At least this news poser was sorta willing to acknowledge he was duped like a teenager.

When are they going to do a satire on your fan favorites and adoring idols Bill Clinton and JFK - now there's some classy guys. Oh, I'm sorry - they're democrats and their intellect is beyond reproach.

Tim King, you rock. Thanks for the story. I shared it.
