Crazy People Acting Conservative, indeed!

I'll be leaving for DC in just a few short hours. Will eventually have some longer posts covering it, but I'll also be tweeting up a storm. Hunt the snark: http://twitter.com/#!/tristyn_bloom

Been watching some of the speeches online courtesy of C-SPAN today; here are my reactions to Gingrich's speech (start at the bottom and work your way up):

Tristyn Bloom
"I believe you can love nature+be a conservative" Gingrich already abandoned futurism,no longer laughing @ us from the height of skyscrapers

Tristyn Bloom
"I'm a futurist." - Newt Gingrich. SO MANY MALEVICH AND MAYAKOVSKY JOKES. Can't pick just one. Oh, man.
Tristyn Bloom
Newt's "environmental friends"? Does that mean singing chipmunks a la Snow White?

Tristyn Bloom
"The number 1 job today is creating jobs... America only works when Americans are working..." Newt as Chauncey Gardiner?
Tristyn Bloom
Fuck yeah Calvin Coolidge!
Tristyn Bloom
"Barack Obama is no Ronald Reagan" is a thing that needed saying?...
Tristyn Bloom
2+2=5 is sometimes a very charming little thing... (The Underground Man is clearly a goldbug, by the way.)
Tristyn Bloom
Bold colors, not pale pastels. ZOOT SUITS in 2012!
Tristyn Bloom
Okay, the music introducing Gingrich is hilarious. And then kind of sad. And then hilarious again.

I'm strongly considering making a FUTURISTS FOR GINGRICH page sometime this weekend. Stay tuned.
