Newt Gingrich, serial adulterer, self-aggrandizing “historian”, former Southern Baptist, now Roman Catholic, wants to be President. I have questions. For instance with two divorces behind him and admitted affairs, does he take Holy Communion? Does he participate in the cannibalistic ritual of eating and drinking the flesh and blood of Christ? If so, then how did he get around the RCC’s squeamishness about divorces, particularly considering that Newt has been lying all along about his first divorce. It seems that he filed the papers himself and it was not by mutual agreement. Old friends have quoted him has saying at the time, ‘You know and I know that she’s not young enough or pretty enough to be the wife of a president.’” He then went on to his second marriage during which he had a six-year affair with a congressional aide, his current wife Calista. During this adulterous affair he was pushing for the impeachment of Bill Clinton for similar offenses. When he divorced his second wife, he did it in typical Newt fashion when according to her he asked his whore to marry him before he even asked her for a divorce.. These things would seem to disqualify him from eating Jesus, but as any Lutheran boy who went through three years of confirmation classes can tell you( I for one), one of the things that got Martin Luther’s panties in a twist was the Catholic sale of indulgences, i.e, Heavenly forgiveness for cash. The Church has allegedly outlawed the practice, but,wouldn’t it be nice to have a well known Tiffany shopper in your parish? Who knows for sure?
Which brings me to my next question. Why is Newt still among the living. Doesn’t the Bible specify death for adulterers? I believe the good book lists stoning as the preferred method? Why aren’t the Christofacists all over this one. Here you have a serial philanderer, to whom the 6th commandment appears to be a trivial matter. Stone him at the gates of the city, I say! Or, you could ignore the cheating and lying and elect the bastard President anyway. It would be the Republican thing to do. SOB

NASA’s Fermi space telescope has detected gamma rays — the highest-energy form of light — emanating from the shattered husk of Tycho’s supernova, a star that exploded in 1572. The find could help astronomers pinpoint the origin of cosmic rays, super-speedy subatomic particles that crash constantly into Earth’s atmosphere, researchers said.

recipe from That Was Vegan?
“Rum-Nog” Poundcake with Cranberries (15-20 small slices)
Recipe adapted from Technicolor Kitchen (non-vegan)
Don’t forget to make any altitude adjustments!
- 2 ¾ cups AP flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 1 cup Earth Balance , room temperature (approximately 2 sticks, plus a little more)
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- Ener G replacement for 3 eggs
- 1 cup So Delicious Nog
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ cup dried cranberries, tossed with 1 teaspoon AP flour
Crystal rum glaze:
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons dark rum
- 2 tablespoons water
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Butter and flour a 10-cup capacity ring or bundt pan.
- In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Set aside.
- In the large bowl of an electric mixer, cream EB on medium-low speed until smooth. Gradually add the sugar then continue beating until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Scrape the side of the bowl.
- Beat in the egg replacer, one-third at a time, and scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally. On the lowest speed, add the flour mixture in four additions alternately with the ‘nog in three additions, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Scrape the sides of the bowl again. Beat in the vanilla. With a rubber spatula, gently fold in the cranberries. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the surface.
- Bake for 55-60 minutes or until the cake is golden and risen and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan over a wire rack for 10 minutes – in the meantime, make the glaze: place the sugar, rum and water in a small bowl and mix to combine.
- Carefully unmold the cake to the rack and, using a pastry brush, coat the top and sides of the cake with the glaze. Cool completely before slicing and serving.
