We never thought we'd be saying this but…Newt Gingrich and Snooki really get along!
The unlikely pair chatted it up while they were both appearing alongside Jay Leno on The Tonight Show.
The politician, who has written 11 New York Times best sellers, congratulated (above) the Jersey Shore star for landing both of her books on the list as well. Upon receiving the compliment, Snooks responded, "Thank you. I'm trying to be like you."
No, gurl! We want you to have a long and happy marriage to Jionni. Please don't try to be like Newt! LOLz!
Find out if the former Speaker of the House is innerested in stopping by Snooki's new pad and downing some Ron-Ron Juice with her and JWOWW … AFTER THE JUMP!
