Callista Gingrich's Elephant Furry Friend: Every Bit As Creepy As We Imagined

(PSP Flashback to April 17, 2012)

A little over a year ago, when I posted the above shot of Goddess Callista and her horrid Elephant Panto nightmare, I said, "Imagine what it would be like to wake up one morning and BE the staffer who knows that later that day, s/he would have to don a clammy, padded nylon ersatz elephant skin and then sit in a chair while Callista drones through Sweet Land of Liberty for the umpteenth time."

Well! It turns out that the intern in the pachyderm suit had other things on his mind:
A Republican presidential campaign worker who was charged this week with cyberstalking young women often bragged about about dressing up as "Ellis the Elephant," a character in Callista Gingrich's children's books who would appear during book signings with her husband, former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.
The FBI on Tuesday accused Adam Savader, a former George Washington University student who worked for Gingrich's presidential campaign and interned for Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan, of sending 15 young women anonymous text messages saying he had nude pictures of them and that he would forward them to their family and friends if they did not send him more pictures.

Is anybody –anybody at all?– surprised by these juicy revelations about Ellis the Elephant's vulgar, secret life?

You've got to love the Gingriches: even the fictional characters they create for children end up having sex scandals.

UPDATE: Ew, ew, ew, the more I think about this, the grosser it gets. So Ellis the Elephant was kind of... well, pervy, right?  So, do you think when he was on the road with the Gingriches, he kept the Ellis the Elephant costume in his motel room, and had girls over, and... and... and...

EW EW EW

Because you know he did.

Okay, we have officially gone through the Princess Sparkle Pony Looking Glass. Amazing.

Seriously, I keep going back to the phrase "What is a satirist to do when his job is being done without him?"

When this was first published I had a hard time looking away from the groin to thigh area on Ellis' suit, but now I wonder if that weird thing he is doing with his hands is trying to get the attention of the little girl in the front row.

Sure, it's a creepy thing to think about, but no creepier than the crimes he's been charged with in a court of law.

Family values! My only regret is that Adam Savader is not a fugitive, because if he were he could replace Eric Justin Toth (another perv who I'm sure is a Republican) on the FBI's Most Wanted list.

I sure hope Callista had that thing sent to the dry cleaners.

Yoiks! This plays out just like one of those "30 years Ago In Spy" featurettes!

Be sure to mention it's one of Paul Ryan's top aids. Puts things in perspective.

"...and had girls over..."

Haw haw haw! That's a good one, Peteykins! I'm pretty sure the only "girls" he had "over" on the road were a concierge or housekeeper.

And they probably, instinctively, had the urge to flee quickly from him. And then probably wash their hands.

Newt has always attracted people of quality. Look at Callie-Lou.
