From the New York Times:
Gingrich Set to Run, With Wife in Central Role
I think all of the other Rethugnican hopefuls will rejoice at that notion (not to mention Obama, should Newt actually win the nomination; seriously – if Cindy McCain was plastic, WTF is Calista Gingrich? Plaster?)
At 45, 22 years her husband’s junior, Mrs. Gingrich always looks perfectly composed.
Sorry, NYT, but I think the word you were looking for is embalmed.
But, lets not forget how Mr. Eligible-For-The-Social-Security-That-His-Party-Wants-To-Kill has that trophy wife:
Callista Bisek’s friends from rural Wisconsin were stunned when, well over a decade ago, she confided that she was secretly dating an older, married man: Newt Gingrich.
Today, Ms. Bisek is Mrs. Gingrich, married for 11 years, but perhaps best remembered for the six-year affair that contributed to her husband’s political downfall. His critics cast Mr. Gingrich, the former House speaker, as a hypocrite who sought to impeach a president over infidelity while engaging in it himself with Ms. Bisek, who was a Congressional aide.
Yet in a curious tale of Washington reinvention, the onetime congressman from Georgia is counting on the third Mrs. Gingrich for his political redemption.
Well, he’s counting on that as well as the racism in America which will ensure that at least 20% of the population continues to believe that (1) George W. Bush ever actually looked for Osama bin Laden, and (2) Obama isn’t American, so he isn’t really president, so by default George W. Bush has to be given 100% of the credit for killing bin Laden.
