Newt Gingrich Gushes About Wife's New Wii on Twitter

March 5, 2009 -

Conservative Newt Gingrich has been posting on Twitter about a Nintendo Wii that his wife, Callista,  received as a birthday present.

The former House Speaker, a hardcore mobile Twitter user, has mentioned the Wii at least twice since last evening:

# Callista got a wii from the cushmans and the lubbers for her birthday A lot of bowling golf and tennis to come ...about 18 hours ago from TwitterBerry

 

# @amlebus callista got a wii for her birthday yesterday. She is excited and wants to golf and bowl with our grandchildren    ...about 7 hours ago from TwitterBerry

The party wasn't mentioned! Clearly he's a Democrat and GP isn't mentioning this because of the party-line conspiracy...

Huh? Posted under the Republicans tag? So what?

Don't we have a whole "Admittedly a Stretch" section for these things?

Re: Newt Gingrich Gushes About Wife's New Wii on Twitter

I dunno, the fact that politicians are using Twitter seems shocking enough to be news to me.  When they were talking about them twittering during the Inaugeration last month, I was astounded that half of them even knew what twitter was.

Exactly. I mean why does everything have to be a story about Keith 'chipmunk cheeks' Vaz or Jack Jobless or the CA/UT bills?

In other news, I once saw a cat with three collars making its way towards the local bar. Apparently, anything can make news.

Re: Newt Gingrich Gushes About Wife's New Wii on Twitter

I'm not going to do GP's dirty work but I would guess that this story can be used as a point of reference if Newt Gingrich either comes out for or against something videogame related, gotcha at worst, precedent at best. 

Example:

"Newt is no stranger to gaming(link to this story) making his actions here: A. unsurprising B. puzzling" 

Re: Newt Gingrich Gushes About Wife's New Wii on Twitter

Failing... to... see... news... worthiness...

Re: Newt Gingrich Gushes About Wife's New Wii on Twitter

it's because of a previous article where he was offering a wii for seomthing.

Matthew Wilson@IAMC as I understand it they disrupted the panel. if they were kicked out just for being a part of GG I would have a issue, but from what I read that wasnt the case.04/19/2015 - 4:24pm
IanCOh and the "false premises" thing? The article on MarySue that said that went up before they got told to leave. How weird that...04/19/2015 - 4:22pm
IanCOf course the fact that group is mostly women goes against everything the antis say about GG, doesn't it? Also from what I've heard they polity asked a couple of questions at a panel, then got kicked out without even getting to pick up tier coats04/19/2015 - 4:21pm

MechaCrashI can understand why Sony wants the Pokemon and Smash movie rights, but it's not hard to see why Nintendo wouldn't want to sell to them. Kinda their competitors in the console arena.04/17/2015 - 8:01pm
