Wisconsin’s Fred Clark Gets Powerbombed/Newt Gingrich Gets Desperate

Last night at a PCW house show in Burlington, Vermont, Wisconsin’s Fred Clark had an unfortunate encounter while attempting to apologize for this…

“Clark rang Sue Stapelman, a nurse, in a routine canvassing call.  At first her answering machine kicked in, and it continued to record when Mrs Stapelman then picked up the phone.  Mr Clark introduced himself, and announced he was running against Republican incumbent Luther Olsen.

Mrs Stapleman replied: ‘Yeah, and isn’t that a crime.’ She then hung up – but the tape kept running.

After a pause, Mr Clark turns to a member of his campaign team and said: ‘OK. I feel like calling her back and smackin’ her around.’”

Clark attempted to apologize but soon enough…

Def Leppard’s ‘Tear It Down’ begins.

You got the look of a howlin’ wolf
I like it
The kind of eyes that could start a fire
Yes, I like it

A streetwise dynamo
I switch you on and I watch you go
A thrill to touch, you’re so hot
I’m coming for you ready or not

I’m gettin’ ready
Livin’ on the edge of a dream
Gettin’ ready, I’m gettin’ ready
Oh, switch on your lovin’ machine

Crowd: What the #$##!  What the #$##!

Tear it down
There’s got to be a better way
Tear it down
I can’t wait another day

Clark gets blasted by the Extreme Equalizer.  Then…

…WTF delivers a powerbomb and flips him off.

Tear it down
There’s got to be a better way
Tear it down
If only you could stay
All night long

Then, this…


Why Newt…why?
