Newt Gingrich Gushes About Wife’s New Wii on Twitter

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?

    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.

    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.

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