Conservative Newt Gingrich is back, and he’s exploiting the Nintendo Wii for political gain.
By way of backstory, there is a pro-union bill, the Employee Free Choice Act, currently before the Congress. The Huffington Post reports that Gingrich views the legislation as "a mortal threat to American freedom."
(GP: Because, you know, rich guys and corporations should have all the power in our society.)
Speaking this week at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington D.C., Gingrich reminded attendees that they could register to win a free Wii by signing up for American Solutions, Gingrich’s new media campaign.
The Huff Post has a comment on the Wii giveaway from an unnamed union official:
Is this part of [new RNC chairman] Michael Steele’s hip-hop revolution? Or is being against working families so lame that they have to bribe kids with a Wii to do it?
