It's too bad. Newton Leroy Gingrich, Ph.D. would have made a great VP.

It turns out, though, the real reason why Pence got the job and not Gingrich may be that "Gingrich" has too many syllables.

Makes perfect sense, doesn't it?

(Hunter Pence wouldn't have been available. Not only because he's only 33, but also because it's an even year and the Giants might end up being good.)

I heard "Ginger itch" gave Trump flashbacks.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Uhh, other outlets are reporting that the announcement has been delayed due to the attack in France.

Also... it would be in Trump's profile to troll the media on this.

I just looked at the Obama-Biden bumper stickers, and you can see the hands of the designer fulfilling the specifications of Obama's name being bigger, but then putting great effort to have the impression it makes be subtle.

I'd make a dick joke about the difference in Trump's, but I can't, because it'd get upstaged by the other dick joke.

Why did I not see it before? Gingrich has too many letters! VP candidates must have the same, or fewer letters in their name. For design purposes.

But... with a long name, if you make it the same width, it's naturally shorter than the top candidate. At least with over/under designs.

With books, it gets flipped. Your last name needs to be short so when they do the over/under it can be long name/SHORT NAME.

Since Trump is a teetotaler, I hypothesize everyone else in his campaign is double-dog drunk.

Okay the stories about trump and pence are out of control. Supposedly his campaign railroaded him and he was trying to get out of it last night.
