Jerry Springer, the king of daytime trash television is offering Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney a million dollars each if they will take their feud onto his show for one taping. “I love to watch when Newt, who is already considered the trailer trash candidate of the GOP, brings a polished businessman like Mitt Romney down to his level,” said Springer. “Forget cousins having babies together, this would blow my audience out of the water.”
Springer said that so far, Newt’s people have tentatively accepted, but he hasn’t heard back from the Romney camp.
“Romney says the money sounds great, but he’s balking at the idea of putting on a Speedo and rolling around in Jello with Newt for the cameras,” said Springer’s producer. “But those are just details that can be worked out. It may be possible to get them to just wear cut-offs and switch out the Jello for mud. Lord knows Mitt is not adverse to a little mud-slinging—it’s just more difficult than we thought convincing him to do it literally.”
