There's a school of thought among some conservative-political types that says the reason the Republican Party lost the last presidential election (and last two congressional elections) is because they're not connecting with the youth. So GOP stalwarts are doing their part to rectify the situation by starting facebook pages, twittering a lot, and otherwise proving how "down" with the "shawties" they are. Case-in-point: Long out-of-office-but-still-somehow-a-GOP-leader Newt Gingrich's recently tweets about how much his wife enjoys the Nintendo Wii.
Here are some recent posts from Newt's twitter stream:
# 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
# Callista was all, "Wait, I can't play Call of Duty 4 on this thing?? How will I pwn nubs? WTFBBQ!!! Get me a PS360 or an Atari Jaguar right now!" ..about 3 hours ago from TwitterBerry
(I made up that last tweet.)
