Todd Palin Endorses Newt Gingrich For President

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin’s husband is endorsing Newt Gingrich for president. Yes, Todd Palin has offered an official endorsement, as Sarah is still - shockingly - making up her mind.

The former Alaska governor and John McCain’s 2008 Republican running mate has yet to decide “who is best able to go up against Barack Obama,” Todd Palin said.

Todd, however, respects Gingrich for what he went through in the '90s and compared that scrutiny in public life to what Sarah Palin went through running for V.P.

Todd Palin said he believes being in the political trenches and experiencing the highs and lows help prepare a candidate for the future and the job of president.

He has not spoken to the Gingrich campaign and did not criticize any of the other GOP candidates and said his “hat is off to everyone” in the Republican race.

But Todd did point to last summer, when a large portion of Gingrich’s staff resigned and the candidate was left, largely by himself, to run the campaign.

Gingrich’s ability to overcome the obstacle and still move up in the polls showed his ability to campaign and survive, according to an impressed Todd Palin.

"Newt Gingrich is not one of the typical beltway types" and his campaign has “burst out of the political arena and touched many Americans,” he said.

No word if the First Dude plans to appear on the former House Speaker's behalf or if his wife will follow suit in the run-up to the South Carolina primary.

Political preferences aside, gorgeous, gracious, glamorous Gov. Sarah Palin really needs to make a fearless fashion statement for her fans & followers, and she needs to do it soon.

This tidbit of news/entertainment/gossip/BS... brings many questions to mind: did someone call Todd Palin and actually ASK him who he endorses or did he volunteer this info? Does ANYONE care who he endorses? Anyone... anyone...?
