Senate Confirms Adulteress As Ambassador To Vatican

The Associated Press reports:

The Republican-led Senate on Monday confirmed Callista Gingrich, wife of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, as the U.S. ambassador to the Vatican.

Senators approved her nomination, 70-23, with more than 20 Democrats joining Republicans in backing her for the post. Newt Gingrich is an ally of Trump, who had announced in May that he would nominate the former congressman’s wife.

She was a congressional aide when she began a six-year affair with Newt Gingrich, then a married Republican lawmaker from Georgia. In 2012, Gingrich’s second wife, Marianne Gingrich, told ABC News that he had proposed an “open marriage” so he could continue to see Callista without divorcing. The former speaker denied the charge.

      And let’s not forget that while this was going on, Gingrich and the replicans in congress were investigating and then impeaching Bill Clinton for lying to them about a consensual blow job.

      • Todd20036

        Actually, that impeachment is why Gingrich left congress, and so did his successor. Then Livingston took over. Only later did he turn out to have kiddie porn on his computer

        • Joseph Miceli

          No, Livingston never ascended because he was having an affair Larry Flynt threatened to expose so he backed out. Dennis Hastert was diddling the boys.

      The Vatican’t refused to accept the French ambassador because he was a gay man, despite France insisting and re-proposing him numerous times. The Vatican’t simply ignored France. They literally put their fingers in their ears and went “lalalalala! I can a not a hear you!”

      They could very easily pull the same stunt with the proposed US ambassador.

    This is one of our least important U.S. Ambassadorships. The Vatican is a group of buildings, a square, a garden and a population of about 900 people. It exists now because Mussolini gave that tiny territory it’s independence in 1929. In the 19th century the Papal States were a nation taking up 1/4 to 1/3 of the Italian peninsula and the U.S. had ambassadors to that nation. In the 1870’s the Italian unification movement, led by Mazzini and Garibaldi, annexed the Papal States and made it part if the Italian nation. After that we had no legal Ambassadors to the Vatican until Ronald Reagan established diplomatic relations with the Vatican as a gift to the ethnic white Reagan Democrats who helped him get elected. Now were stuck with it because abolishing it would be demagogued as anti Catholic. I was glad to see that Senator Durban, who is seen as not Democratic enough by some of the armchair liberals who post here, was among the 23 Democrats who voted no.

      Wrong dim sum. Both Party’s are not equally awful. The Democratic Party, like all human institutions has some flaws. The Republican Party is inherently flawed. In voting third party just who have you helped elect? Bush because you voted for Nader? Trump because you voted for Stein? Learn to make intelligent distinctions and don’t just paint every politician with the same stupid broad brush.

      • I love dim sum

        I’m embarrassed to say that I voted for Gore back in 2000. I regret that; I wish I would have voted for Nader instead.

        I did vote for Stein though. The only people to blame for Trump getting elected are Hillary supporters for offering up such a corrupt, toxic candidate.

        Oh, and the Democratic party is systematically flawed, just like the Republican party, which is why I stopped voting for them in 2016.

    “Carrie Fisher’s friend Heather Ross said Monday that the “Star Wars” princess had no tolerance for sexual misconduct in Hollywood.
    Speaking on local Tucson, Arizona, station 94.9’s “Morning Mix” show, Ross said that Fisher once sent a cow tongue to a producer who she said had harassed her.
    “It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli with a note that said, ‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box.,’” Ross said on the show.”

      Newet had his first two marriages annulled during his conversion to the Catholic Church.

    • Silly. The first two wives don’t count because they weren’t Catholic. He converted for her so according to the church this is his only marriage (and his kids are all illegitimate, btw). Such is the lunacy of the RCC.

    Funny how Christians only believe the parts of the Bible that are convenient for their actions and beliefs. Homos can be stoned to death, but not heterosexual adulterers. Funny how that works. And what’s even funnier is that their ignoramus supporters completely agree with all that shit.

    • boatboy_srq

      Don’t forget that it was nearly always the adulterous women who got stoned, too: the men were never really censured for that. “Boys will be boys” goes back a loooong way.

      The way around being stoned, or otherwise killed, is to simply repent, and accept God as your savior. Since as humans we make mistakes, if this has to be done more than once…well, just do it. semi/s

      • TampaDink

        But sometimes….I like being stoned.

        • Ken M

          lol..cute. Scary that all you need to get away with anything is to give in. This is why the church offers Last Rites to anyone who wants them. Last minute attempt to forgive sins, get you into heaven, and into the fold.

          • TampaDink

            They’ll even do that occasionally when a patient isn’t conscious or aware of the rite….and they will also do last rites after death.

    OT…

    “one easter in the 1960s the actress tallulah bankhead was in town playing regina in hellman’s “the little foxes” at one of the downtown theaters. her publicist thought it would be a good idea if she made an appearance at cardinal cody’s high easter mass at holy name cathedral on state street. miss bankhead acquiesced and dressed to the nines, she was seated in the front of the church on the aisle.

    the processional begins and cardinal cody, decked out in all his finest lace and silk raiment starts the long walk down the aisle preceded by acolytes and followed by priests, including father bill. cody’s swinging a burning censor with its smokey arc back and forth in front of him and as he comes up next to miss bankhead, she honks in her best stage whisper, “darling, i love your dress, but your purse is on fire.”

    • worstcultever

      Best Tallulah story ever – & good retelling

      • boobert
        • Dazzer

          That was sincerely hilarious.

      • Avenger280

        I’ve heard a slightly more ribald telling of the glitter story. Seems Tallulah threw a party one night and Joan showed up in a gown festooned with gold glitter and Miss T was somewhat perturbed that she’d been upstaged at her own soiree. After retiring upstairs for a while, Tallulah reappeared on the balcony that looked down into the ballroom. She was totally naked with gold glitter in her pubes. She then announced to everyone “Guess who just went down on me!”

    • Strepsi

      Honey not OT at all, I posted this below — but your quote sounds more accurate! Where is this retelling from?

    • Where exactly did this happen? I’ve heard the story attached to a number of Catholic churches over the years.

      • greenmanTN

        I don’t know. It’s a great story but I’ve always assumed it was apocryphal.

        • The great stories almost always are. It does sound like something she might have said, and so we all wish it really happened. I just wasted a couple of days trying to track down a quote often attributed to Shaw. I don’t think he ever said it, or at least he never wrote it down and no one claims on the record that they heard him say it. That makes for an awkward citation (I’m quoting it anyway).

          • greenmanTN

            Someone gets a reputation for being a great wit and suddenly every funny thing ever said, every joke punchline, is attached to their name. Since she was a writer there is a lot of documentary evidence of Dorothy Parker’s wit, but there are some stories attached to her name that sound a little… iffy. But it’s fun to imagine her saying them anyway.

      • Natty Enquirer

        The tale has been around for ages and includes a variety of faiths, not just Catholics.

    • JCF

      I thought it was Cardinal “Mary Frances” Spellman? (a flamer, just like his purse!).

      • greenmanTN

        One of the funniest things that used to be on the Betty Bowers website was someone asking why sometimes Cardinal O’Connor was called Cardinal John O and at others John Cardinal O.

        Response was “Because ‘Haughty Miss Thing in the fabulous flowing red dress, living in a mansion on 5th Ave when Jesus told you to live simply’ won’t fit on a placecard, dear. Yours in faith and fashion, Betty.”

        And “Betty Bowers, so close to Jesus that the Father and the Holy Ghost are starting to call me Yoko.”

    • gaycuckhubby

      For what reason should she not be confirmed? Ambassadorships to the Vatican are pretty much just trophy prizes anyway

      • TampaDink

        It is still a participation trophy/reward from the federal govt. which affords her lots of perks.

        • gaycuckhubby

          I agree. But it’s going to go to someone. On the list of things to get upset about today, this is at the lowest possible level.

          • TampaDink

            I’m not really all bent out of shape over this appointment.
            I honestly find it pretty amusing. The hypocrisy is stunning!

          • Sam_Handwich

            it’s Trump saying FU to the pope, and i’m conflicted over whom to support.

          • gaycuckhubby

            Hmmm… which does more harm to humanity. Seriously. It’s a pretty close call.

            I’m pretty sure the Pope doesn’t care about this appointment tho

          • JCF

            If the Vatican had any nukes, maybe…

            Seriously, Pope Francis has opinions that vary so wildly from mine—they may be considered evil. But he’s not fucking CRAZY enough to start WW3! And Drumpf, from what I can see, is ENTIRELY Evil. I wouldn’t put it past him to be molesting his grandchildren. THAT Evil.

      Like I needed another reason to hate Feinstein any more than I already do.

      • andrew

        Do you also hate Franken, Baldwin, Murray, Warner, Reed, Shaheen, Schumer et al?

        • Rebecca Gardner

          If I lived in their State and they were supposed to represent me then I probably would. However, since I live in CA, my only concern was Feinstein.

          Does that satisfy your curiosity or was there some sort of point you were trying to make?

          • andrew

            The point that I was making is that quite a few progressive Democrats, like the ones I listed, voted yea. They probably did so because the vote was not very important and so there was no reason to waste political capital and alienate any voters on such an inconsequential vote. A progressive politician stays in office fighting for our fundamental values but not needlessly making political enemies on unimportant issues. It’s called common sense.

          • JCF

            Agreed. You have to pick your battles—pace yourself. You can’t “die on every hill”. Confirming the adulter’s pick of the adulteress to the embassy of the “Vicar of Christ” (you know, the Christ who called marrying a divorcee “adultery”) only shows up the HYPOCRISY of the lot of ’em doing/receiving the picking. It reflects on the Senate Dems next-to-nothing.

      • andrew

        Actually the smarter purely political move for Feinstein would probably have been to vote no and maybe lure some center-left folks to support her reelection.

        • Ken M

          We’ve already had the “should Feinstein run and why/why not debate” last week. Once was enough and it’s getting late.

    • andrew

      The vote was 70-23, You have listed 24 Democratic senators as voting yea. Leahy voted no. Furthermore, I don’t fault any Democratic senator who voted yea, if he or she thought voting no on this unimportant position would hurt them politically. A smart and winning senator picks his or her battles and doesn’t make political enemies on unimportant votes. Armchair liberals don’t understand that pragmatism enables one to win elections and stay in office and actually advance the progressive agenda while the armchair liberals enjoy their purity.

      • gaycuckhubby

        Yeah, I don’t understand the harm in allowing her to become ambassador. The only reason to deny her is because you think she’s a hypocrite in her personal life

        • andrew

          Being a hypocrite in ones personal life has rarely kept anyone from becoming an ambassador. These are cushy jobs usually given to big donors or friends of a president be he Democrat or Republican.

          • gaycuckhubby

            Exactly

          • Ken M

            Now why would a person need immunity in Vatican City? Hmmmmm

      • Ken M

        If it gets Newt out of town and off the news show circuit, I say let her have it. The Senate does have more important thing on their agenda then trying to stop a train that shouldn’t be stopped in the first place.

    • SoCalGal20

      In the scheme of things, I don’t really care how they voted on this. Maybe Callista being in Rome will get Newt out of Washington which I would consider a plus.

      But even if not, this is not the hill I, nor apparently the Senators who voted yay, am going to die on.

    • andrew

      Most of these Democratic senators on your list of “no cake for gays” are strong supporters of equal rights for LGBT people. Learn a little bit about their positions on issues before you post such nonsense.

      • JCF

        I believe “no cake for gays” refers to the beliefs of Gingrich, not the Senators who voted to confirm her.

        -ists, thank you. Have read the whole thing several times (w/ good liberal Christian annotated commentary).

        My favorite “Good Times!” Bible quote: Deuteronomy 28:53-57

        “53Because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege, you will eat the fruit of the womb, the flesh of the sons and daughters the Lord your God has given you.
        54Even the most gentle and sensitive man among you will have no compassion on his own brother or the wife he loves or his surviving children,
        55and he will not give to one of them any of the flesh of his children that he is eating. It will be all he has left because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege of all your cities.
        56The most gentle and sensitive woman among you—so sensitive and gentle that she would not venture to touch the ground with the sole of her foot—will begrudge the husband she loves and her own son or daughter
        57the afterbirth from her womb and the children she bears. For in her dire need she intends to eat them secretly because of the suffering your enemy will inflict on you during the siege of your cities.

        [I especially love the part about not SHARING the children you’re eating! ;-p~~~~]

        The Bible has lots of funny passages in it (funny to their original audience, w/ the exaggerations for effect, and funny—well, to me anyway—now). It’s only if you take it literally (which it for the most part wasn’t intended to be) that it becomes scaaaaaaary. Fuck Fundy literalism. Let’s eat some children!

    • Depends on exactly how corrupt the local bishop or archbishop is.

    • madknits

      His previous marriages were not annulled. He was not a Catholic before he married Callista, and those marriages were not performed in a Catholic church. Marriages not performed by Catholic clergy are not recognised as valid or real, so as far as the RCC is concerned, he’s on his first marriage.

    OT: The Last Night. We’re expecting first frost tonight, although it’s likely to be patchy and we might miss it. My garden is on an incline, so there’s a chance. Even so, it’s really going down and I’ve removed a solid 25% and composted it. Six pots came in tonight to protect them, one begonia, three marigolds that’ll bloom over winter, one zinnia (hopefully to bloom in December), and an ageratum, which won’t even notice it came in.

    It still looks pretty good, though, even for a late season example. The little green stuff isn’t weeds, they’re volunteers. If we miss frost, they should have two solid weeks to grow and possibly throw a blossom or two.

        • Jerry Kott

          Bee venom is a term used by Epipen to describe the venom from wasp, yellow jackets etc. It does get zen working in the garden with honey bees doing their work. Been stung by wasp, and yellow jackets too many times in the past.

        • greenmanTN

      Wow, I can tell you I did not move well for ten days or so. It coulda been fatal, too, y’know, because a broken toe is really, really dangerous. So dangerous I couldn’t set it myself and slap some tape on it.

  • Jeffrey

    Ive told this story before because it is relevant, so ignore it if you’ve heard it. I have a wealthy friend who was bored with his wife and knocked up his girlfriend. Only problem was that they were all very catholic. So they got divorced and waited a period of time and paid A LOT of money to have their divorce annulled by the church. A year or so after the girlfriend gives birth to their child they walk down the aisle in white like virgins at a gorgeous catholic church in Sonoma. Very lovely affair. But the hypocrisy of it all was very comfortable to them because of their wealth. My friend is the president of an arms manufacturer in the Philippines. Hilariously enough last year Pope Francis declared that all gun manufacturers could not be real catholics. Time to write another check…

        I posted this previously:

        TWO TRUTHS

        1) Trump is a pathological narcissist.

        2) Trump has spent his entire life in a self-created bubble.

        The bubble maintains, for Trump, the idea that he is perfect, brilliant, sexy, the best ever, etc.

        Trump is constantly having to maintain this bubble, to keep it crack-free and polished. This is standard for any pathological narcissist, and I would suggest that Trump’s PRIMARY effort on a daily basis is to maintain his self-created bubble.

        He was able to do this for seven decades.

        But…then he got in the Oval office, and for ten months now has endured a level of scrutiny that ONLY a person in the Oval Office can experience.

        If Trump ignored the media he could continue to maintain his bubble.

        But Trump is addicted to news about himself. And it is clear that he is watching a LOT of news which SO does not correspond with his bubble-created image. Just recently, for example, he was having to process the whole world discussing his being a fucking moron.

        So, for the first time in his life, Trump’s bubble is being cracked and battered in a way unprecedented for him. Criticism of him is piling up faster than he can do emergency repairs to the bubble.

        This then begs the question: What happens to a pathological narcissist when their bubble is destroyed?

        To me, THIS is the question.

        And God help us all.

    Huh. Here’s why we weren’t graced with Sarah today:

    [The impromptu press conference] was the latest instance of Trump bypassing his own communications staff to speak directly to the press, and the public, after weeks of blistering criticism and as White House aides struggle with the increasing possibility that they may end the year without accomplishing any of their grand legislative goals.

    The president first convened his Cabinet for a discursive soliloquy on issues domestic and foreign. They sat stone-faced as he held forth, meandering from topic to topic.

    He then abruptly canceled the daily briefing by press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, instead summoning reporters already gathered in the briefing room to the Rose Garden for an impromptu 40-minute news conference, where he faced a frenzy of shouted questions and seemed to want to answer even more.

    • It would be highly unusual for the Vatican not to accept a U.S. Ambassador. I could see it happening if one or more American Archbishops objected — especially the Archbishop of New York (who is usually the unofficial leader of the American Church), but unless that happens, it is going to be a rubber stamp. Cardinal Dolan of New York who is considered a moderate (he is the one who pushed for acceptance an LGBT contingent in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade) btw cannot stand Trump – he embarrassed him when he “broke the rules” and rudely attacked Hillary during the Al Smith Dinner in Manhattan last October on National Television. I am sure words were exchanged afterwards.

    It appears that Trump has been making fun of Mike Pence and his fellow evangelicals, notwithstanding the huge support he has received from them. Trump likes to quip to other people behind Mike Pence’s back: “Did he make you pray?” Then he told Mike Pence to his face that he was “wasting his time” trying to overturn Roe vs. Wade when Trump found out that this would probably cause the abortion issue to be turned over to the states, and the liberal states would keep it legal. Trump also made fun of Pence’s homophobia when he reportedly said: “Oh don’t consult with that guy about gay rights. He wants to hang them all.”

    • Franciscan

      This is really interesting. Should we take this as evidence that Trump is capable of weighing alternatives and thinking ahead (contrary to mental health people who hope to get him declared incompetent)? As one who has been horrified to think that the Supreme Court, with the “right” appointees, could soon overturn Roe v. Wade, I had never thought about the possibility of women’s bodies being protected in Blue states and violated by the state in Red ones.

      • MaryJOGrady

        The Texas statutes struck down in Roe vs. Wade and the companion case, Doe vs. Bolton, are still on the books. Pro-choice leaders I know in Texas think that if Roe ever goes, abortion will be re-criminalized in Texas overnight.

      Yeah, the NRA said guns are magic. Her moving is basically admitting it ain’t so.

      • Bingo.

      • Bert_Bauer

        But she’s got to have her gunz in case she needs to fight the “oppressive government” … but she runs at alleged threats from (presumably) liberal “snowflakes. The bitch’s mouth is writing checks she can’t cash.

    • Bert_Bauer

      If the threats are true (big “if”), I guess this loud-mouthed conservative lowlife isn’t as tough as she likes to play-act. How you say … snowflake.

        • Safari I have another “teen drama” for you to check out on Netflix — the Spanish show “El Internado” (The Boarding School). The plot is some hitchcockian murder mystery haunted nonsense but the boys are very very hot — including Yon Gonzales and Martino Rivas who are spending more and more of each episode (I am up to year 2) with their shirts off strutting in and out of the school showers showing their culos off and being “macho”. My friend in Barcelona turned me onto it. They are more well built by this now — this is year 1. They also are now on another Spanish series on Netflix – Cable Girls — LOL.

    OT: It’s 40° out there and dew is forming. The sun rises in six hours, so hopefully there’s no frost.

    Even right at the end of the season, some plants are little troopers and just keep producing…

    ETA: It may be 40° out there, but the compost bin I started early evening at 54° degrees is already up to 110° and rising fast. This is what happens when you put some grass cuttings in there to speed things along; it should hit 160° by tomorrow.

    • Lazycrockett

      Dont you kinda wish at this point for a hard frost? I mean you could be tending garden till Thanksgiving the way the weather is these days.

      • Treant

        Not really. It does get tiring, but by this point in the year, the sunlight level is down pretty far. Half the dahlia and most of the smallest marigolds have gotten old and given up for the year. Tonight should take out the Melampodium; they don’t like temperatures under forty. Those that remain, more than half are already being composted. The zinnia are covered in powdery mildew and just about to drop regardless of the weather; they’re six months old, which is ancient in zinnia terms.

        In cooler temps and lower sunlight, my work is cut to a tenth of what it was in July.

    — Gregg Popovich, coach of the San Antonio Spurs, USAF veteran

    • joeyj1220

      It’s been fun watching the reaction from die hard Spurs fans. San Antonio is a very conservative city but they treat the Spurs like its a religion. Many of the fans want to boycott Popovich’s team because of his repeated take down of Trump, but that’d mean they’d have to stop watching basketball. It’s a Sophie’s Choice for them.

  • Richard B

    The Catholic Church did play an overt role in the ascension of Donald Trump. Many Catholic archdioceses in 2016, told their parishioners it would be a mortal sin to vote for Hillary Clinton, because she was for a woman’s right to choose.
    Karma works in mysterious ways and here is the Vatican’s comeuppance …
    Trump has shown us that he does have a perverse sense of humor by sending as America’s representative, the Ambassador to the Vatican, Newt Gingrich’s third wife, his former concubine, Callista Gingrich. Callista is the third wife Newt ended up marrying after he cheated shamelessly on his first two wives.

    I still think Callista suspiciously looks like some sort of a weird alien-human hybrid experiment.
    You decide?

    Ay, thou poor ghost, whiles memory holds a seat

    I’ll wipe away all trivial fond records,
    All saws of books, all forms, all pressures past
