So, this is the best thing to happen last night (Wednesday July 18): Snooki bonded with Newt Gingrich on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. Yes, the Newt Gingrich that ran for president.

The meeting starts off well — "What up?" Snooki asks — and then just gets better and better. Newt congratulates Snooki for being a New York Times Bestseller. Snooki tells him, "I'm trying to be like you." Newt's automatic response? "Nooo."

But the best part is in the second half of the interview, when Snooki talks about allowing Jionni to have strippers at his bachelor party, because then Newt gets brought into the conversation. About strippers.

Check it out below.
