Newt Gingrich won the South Carolina primary on Saturday, 15 years to the day he was censured by the House of Representatives and ordered to pay a $300,000 fine for ethical wrongdoing.

It was a tough week for Mitt Romney, who went from winning the first two contests in Iowa and New Hampshire and leading South Carolina by double digits to only winning one. Rick Santorum emerged as the victor in Iowa after all the votes were counted properly, and Gingrich turned a venomous attack on the lamestream media into a big win over Romney in a state that glossed over Newt’s serial adultery.

Given the wild week that saw a “family values” drum-beating state pick a man who left two sick wives in the dust (one after a six-year affair and a request for an “open marriage”), Twitter was justifiably prodded into making joke after joke after joke about Gingrich’s out-of-nowhere victory.

Here are 12 hilarious tweets about Newt’s win in South Carolina…
