'You're A Mean One, Newt Gingrich' Depicts GOP Candidate As Grinch In Dr. Seuss Parody (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

As the holiday season and GOP primary both draw near, it's only natural that the two would eventually merge in a politically-charged Christmas video titled, "You're A Mean One, Newt Gingrich."

The star of the show? The controversial GOP candidate, of course.

The video features some of Gingrich's most notorious sayings set to a modified version of the theme song to Dr. Seuss' "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" (get it?) along with some pretty amusing graphics.

With lines such as, "you're a bad banana and cheat on your wife," and "the three words that best describe you are as follows, and I quote, 'one. per. cent.,'" the clip is sure to put a smirk on your face.

If you're offended by this parody, relax; there will be plenty more. After all, it's only December. We're sure your least favorite candidate will hit the Interwebs in some sort of wacky spoof sometime between now and November of 2012.

In the meantime, there's always Rick Perry and our spoof of his latest "Strong" video.
