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.

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"

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.

E. Zachary KnightAccording to this link, the pizzeria owner did not actually refuse anyone service. He was ask by a reporter if he would cater to a gay wedding and he answered in the negative. When that was published, the rants came rolling in.04/01/2015 - 8:17pm
Papa MidnightCorrection to my prior note, DiRT 3 Complete Edition does NOT replace DiRT 3 in user's libraries. But existing owners of DiRT 3 do get it for free.04/01/2015 - 8:00pm
Matthew Wilson@AE it could be like pokemo, but the tweet and the site makes it look like 2 different games. tbf I do not know Japanese.04/01/2015 - 7:29pm
MechaCrashInteresting how YouTube comments are universally acknowledged to be cesspits of idiocy where no coherent thought can survive, until a woman closes them. Then it's CENSORSHIP and being AFRAID OF DEBATE.04/01/2015 - 7:29pm
Andrew EisenThat's... weird. The Direct made it sound like this was an organic part of a single game.04/01/2015 - 7:08pm
Matthew Wilsonapparently the 2 sides of the story in the new fire emblem game is 2 difrent games in japan, and we are getting both combined. https://twitter.com/RPGSite/status/583415770744393729/photo/104/01/2015 - 7:00pm
MonteAE: there are pizzaria's that also make italian food which you can order in bulk to cater parties. Also, google pizza wedding; cause it is pretty cool04/01/2015 - 6:50pm
ConsterThe vast majority of (if not all) 1-star reviews are angry rants about its policy. 'Jesus said to love thy neighbor, assholes' (paraphrased) seems very common.04/01/2015 - 6:49pm
Matthew WilsonI did not check it out personaly. I only read a arctlice about it, but it does seem to be in a lets just say a very mean way.04/01/2015 - 6:41pm
Andrew EisenTrashed in a fair way or are people lying about cockroach infestations and stuff?04/01/2015 - 6:24pm
Matthew Wilsonwell they also are getting trashed on yelp too. given the number of people that use it, I suspect they will lose allot of business even if they change their mind.04/01/2015 - 6:19pm
Andrew EisenIt's a pizza joint. It caters weddings? Really? I mean, that's cool. Really cool, even. But seriously?04/01/2015 - 6:02pm

MonteYa i remember when she first started her videos with the comment sections open. There was A LOT of vile harrassment to shift through to get to any REAL debate. Youtube is a TERRIBLE debate forum. Can't blame her for not wanting to deal with harrasment.04/01/2015 - 5:49pm
