Newt Blogovitch

h/t to someone who was erased – as well as to Gawker:

Yesterday Newt Gingrich laid out a new argument for why he should be the GOP presidential nominee: He’s got the most Twitter followers. But according to a former Gingrich staffer, he bought them.

Gingrich complained yesterday that the press is ignoring his prodigious Twitter audience: “I have six times as many Twitter followers as all the other candidates combined, but it didn’t count because if it counted I’d still be a candidate; since I can’t be a candidate that can’t count.” Which is true! Gingrich currently boasts 1,325,842 followers, whereas competitors Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann have yet to crack 100,000.

But if Newt is winning the Twitter primary, it’s because of voter fraud. A former staffer tells us that his campaign hired a firm to boost his follower count, in part by creating fake accounts en masse….

His mistake, of course, was to turn to the propaganda subsidiary of Yoyodyne Propulsion.  Look at a sampling (pun intended)of Newt’s fake Twitterers:

    Twitter followers aren’t voters. They’re mainly just twits.

    Has anyone ever met a real person named Lurleen? Didn’t think so. A Lurleen is something you pull out of your tackle box when you’re trying to catch walleyes.

  3. meow! The claws are out this morning 😉

  5. […] Is Lurleen Icicle Boy (or perhaps Lurleen Mud Head or Lurleen Repeat Dance) comment moderator for QCM these days? […]
