Newt Gingrich: Running For President


There. I’ve said it. You heard it first right from the number one GroundHog. The guy whose colleagues gave him the boot not too many years ago is desperately trying to reinvent himself, yet again, so that he can run for President.

Gingrich has made no formal announcement but he is out there everyday hinting at a run. What is amazing is after his criticism of Sarah Palin, he has obviously taken a page from her book to raise money. Instead of a reality television show, Gingrich is selling holiday stuff like this cute little snow globe.

Although, I wonder who his marketing person is. I’m not sure I’d want to see my head delivered up on a pile of snow as way to raise money or endear people to my candidacy — or “possible” candidacy. But then again, maybe this is a smart tactic. Maybe there are some folks who would want to see Gingrich’s head on a pile of snow.

According to Salon, Gingrich is hawing his stuff for just about any holiday that has come up, including Veteran’s Day, Pearl Harbor and now Christmas. I wonder if he has any plans for Kwanza?
