Newt Gingrich Santa Claus Song: Loudon Wainwright III Sings Spoof (VIDEO)

"Santa Claus is Coming to Town" is meant to be a jolly welcoming for the big gift-giver from up north. The ukelele folk takeoff "Newt Gingrich is Running for Pres" is not so kind.

Grammy-winning folk singer/songwriter Loudon Wainwright III put out this new cover of the classic carol, ripping on Newt Gingrich's rise to the top of the GOP presidential primary polls.

"He's not just gonna teach it, he'll make history, he's pals with Donald Trump, tweedle dum, tweedle dee," he sings.

Needless to say, this probably won't be Gingrich's new campaign theme song.
