Eye of Newt


“Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake; Eye of newt and toe of frog, Wool of bat and tongue of dog, Adder's fork and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg and owlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.”

--Shakespeare, Macbeth 

I am proud to have worked eye of Newt in here somehow. Though I don't imagine many people under 60 remember Newt Gingrich anyway. He was the 50th Speaker of the House, an asshole Republican and one of the political figures who used to irritate the hell out of most liberals until Trump lowered the bar.

 His name was actual Newton (though he is quite reptilian). He tried running for President in 2012 but lost the nomination to Mitt Romney. He was (an is) one of Trump's toadies. 

Oh and he is from Georgia.  'Nuff said.

 Anyway Newt would fit well in a witch's cauldron of foul smelling things along with most of the other conservative scum gibbering away in Congress and worshiping Trump's orange butt. 

I'm glad to slunk off into obscurity with the rest of the lizard's Newt. Hope you are boiling and bubbling somewhere warm.
