Satire: ‘How the Gingrich Stole Christmas’
As has become custom, comedy website Funny or Die is in high form this year with political satire just in time for the holidays. This time, it’s the logical target: Newt Gingrich, who’s name has all the letters for “Grinch” nearly in order.
In the animated short, comedian Paul F. Tompkins narrates a spin-off of “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” featuring a green Gingrich whose head is far too large, as he schemes to take the presidency from Barack Obama.
The results are actually a bit more clever than you’d expect, even though this isn’t the first Gingrich/Grinch video we’ve seen this year.
