After greeting with an all-American fist-bump, the GOP and Guidette bonded over strippers, best-selling books and Jersey Shore bashes on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

“I’ve seen clips of Jersey Shore,” former Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich said to Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.”In fact, I saw some interviews when you did your first book. Congratulations on having two New York Times bestsellers.”

The pint-sized party gal shot back, “Thank you. I’m trying to be like you.”

When talk turned to her upcoming “I do’s” to fiance Jionni Lavalle, Snooki supported her hubby-to-be’s right to a blow-out bachelor party.

“I feel like a guy should have strippers,” she said. “You know, you’re going to be married to the same girl your whole life, so enjoy it. I trust him.”

Did Gingrich have naked ladies at his last night of freedom?

“No,” the outspoken political personality admitted. “I feel like, in some ways, my life has been deprived now that I’ve listened to you.”

But now the former speaker is ready to carpe diem — and even proposed a “hang out” with the mom-to-be on her new reality spinoff, Snooki & JWoww.

“That’d be awesome,” Snooks exclaimed. “You could drink ‘Ron-Ron’ juice.”

Now there’s an episode worth watching!
