Michelle, Sarah and Newt

So we have one confirmed candidate in the Republican party, Newt Gingrich. My first thought is, can we have a president named “Newt?”  I suppose so, since we overcame the Hussein problem. I found it interesting that Mr. Gingrich, as advanced in age as he is, immediately sought to make his age a non-issue by announcing his candidacy on FB and youtube. He’s hip, we are to think.  At least his staff thinks they are.

What I look forward to seeing is what the little girls in the cartoon above are thinking. While I am not sympathetic to the Republican cause, I am nonetheless happy to see candidates who are women stand up strongly to candidates who are men. Plus, it would make great theater, don’t you think? Throw a little Trump in there, mix it up with a dash of Huckabee and garnish with Mitt. You might like it spiced with Jindal or Rudy. And, of course, Pawlenty on the side.

At least Michelle and Sarah have normal names, they have that going for them.
