Could it be? Is Newt finally getting out of the race and retiring down at the cherry blossoms?
Of all people, my mother’s birthday was yesterday, and she tells me that her girlfriends had taken her to D.C. to see the cherry blossoms.
So they are down there, and my mom’s friend is wondering why there were black limousines and bodyguards everywhere. They ask what she is looking at it.
Then she tells them surprised, “That’s Newt Gingrich! Over there!”.
Gingrich was walking around shaking people’s hands, and walked up and shook her hand.
She turns to my Mom, “I just shook hands with Newt Gingrich! He could be the next president!”.
Yeah, and the cherry blossoms bloom in the winter.
What a publicity stunt. Is he that desperate to get votes that he walks around D.C. smelling flowers and shaking people’s hands?
