Newt Gingrich today teared up talking about his mother during an appearance in Des Moines. Have a look-see:
Gosh, that interviewer sure did smell some blood in the water and grab for as much flesh as he could, didn’t he? A lot of guile beneath that comfy sweater and all the apologies.
I mean really, “What would you tell her today?” He was just lying in wait for, “I luhhhhhv you mom! Wahhhhhhh!”
Anyway, what do you think? Is this Muskie in New Hampshire, or Hillary in New Hampshire? A campaign meltdown, or a humanizing moment?
H/T to Drudge Report where I first saw the story about Newt getting his cry on.
