I’m not even sure Newt is still campaigning, but if he is, he’s doing it wrong.
Newt took two hours of his schedule to schmooze at the St. Louis Zoo.
The candidate for the Republican presidential nomination sustained a small injury during a visit to the St. Louis Zoo on Friday, where he was getting a two-hour private tour. A Magellanic penguin nipped Gingrich’s finger, but the injury only required a Band-Aid, according to the zoo.
Um, Newt, penguins can’t actually vote. However, it appears they have spoken.
ANN ROMNEY: Once, he– we traveled all the time and he– he ate the turkey on the counter. I mean, he had the runs. But– he would see that crate and, you know, he would, like, go crazy because he was going with us on vacation. It was to me a kinder thing to bring him along than to leave him in the kennel for t– in– in– in a kennel for two weeks, so.
I’m not sure how she knows that a dog going crazy before being loaded into a crate and strapped on the roof of the car is a dog loving life.
I have a dog and he happens to go crazy and wag his tail when stormy weather is coming. Then, he quietly sneaks off to a part of the house out of my line of vision to poop.
I’m pretty sure that’s not his idea of showing he’s having a good time. Maybe rich people’s dogs don’t speak the same language as my dog?
Apparently, Rep. Allen West is the captain on the crazy train. Not only does he think the President of the United States is scared of him (um, he has Joe Biden’s teeth and a fleet of Secret Service agents - pretty sure he’s NOT scared of anyone), but he also made this crazy claim:
He later said “he’s heard” up to 80 U.S. House Democrats are Communist Party members, but wouldn’t name names.
What do they put in the water in Florida to get people to elect candidates who make insane statements without ever backing them up? Name names or stop the fear mongering. It’s really getting old.
I love when old guys in politics think they’re being hip (their word, not mine) by getting on Twitter and cranking out posts in 140 characters or less. I do not love when they blame the technology for their mistakes.
“I don’t use a computer. I rely on my Blackberry and now my iPhone for everything I need. The iPhone has been a little bit of a learning curve, but I’m starting to get the hang of it.”
Also, Sen. Chuck grassley, you can’t blame your phone for calling the president stupid. That’s ALL you.
