It's been observed that young Newt Gingrich looks like "The Office" star Rainn Wilson.

Now, check out Rainn Wilson's Twitter photo, and this tweet:
Congrats to @NewtGingrich on his win! If he's still into the whole 'open marriage' thing I'm VERY interested.

I still think he looks more like Radar O'Reilly (Gary Burghof) From MASH fame.

I love how much of a joke Gingrich is. He is nothing but laughs. This primary has been far more entertaining than I thought it would ever be.

Also, I love how when I say it reflects poorly on the Republican party that they ever took Gingrich seriously as a candidate and half the people say that they never took Gingrich seriously and they always knew he was a joke and half say that he is their firstest choice and will win the debates and the Presidency!

People might not think this Rainn Wilson thing isn't a big deal, but whenever Gingrich comes up now it's because people are laughing at him, and someone who is the butt of jokes can't win a presidential election.

Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords is still very much in the running.

My oh, my oh, my. How did Newt manage to collect all of those wives? Power must be an aphrodisiac. (See the Jemaine link from Paul Zrimsek for the young Newt)

Young Newt was a rebel geek, no pocket protector had he.

"Andy, you are so young."

And a bit of a joke.

Andy,
When you post it reminds me of this.

PS. You're the owner.

College age Newt was an Emoroid. but he must not have been in a Fraternity, because I don't remember him.

If he had been mean to me, than I would remember him.

He looked nothing like that when he began running for Congress 12 years later.

I guess there is one look used at a liberal school, and another look at the red neck Georgia 5th District rally. His first District was the same one that Jeff Foxworthy and Lewis Grizzard came from. I kid you not.

The Dems hated Newt so bad that in the 1992 reapportionment map, the Dems in Georgia Legislature eliminated the SW of Atlanta located 5th District that Newt had sewed up for 7 terms. They divided it into 4 other Districts...stomped that sucker flat as the comedians say.

The indomitable Newt just went 80 miles to northwest metro Atlanta to Cobb County and ran among voters there who traditionally hate Atlantans, much less southside of town ones.

But at the dawns early light we could see that Newt was still there.

Rush Limbaughh said that Newt would pick up 20% of the democrat vote after the open marriage issue broke . . .
