"I have worked with him for over five years, and I swear that is the first I ever knew that he could sing." Frodo could not help but think of Bill Clinton, wearing sunglasses, and playing the saxophone, as he watched President Obama croon Al Green to his audience Why, he thought to himself, is he so surprised, simply because he may be tone-deaf and unable to carry a tune, that other products of the music-as-art generation have ability to remind all of us how much this world owes us? If it were not for us, everybody would still be dancing to "String of Pearls" by Glenn Miller. Were it so, Frodo would be at the bar.
The same day, Frodo considered Obama's most likely opponent, and noted the following about presidential candidates during his lifetime. Dwight Eisenhower had recurrent heart problems. Ronald Reagan had bouts with dementia while he was still in the White House. John Kennedy suffered with severe back pain resulting from injuries and disease. With these lone exceptions, Frodo can say that the universe of presidential aspirants, save one, have been in pretty good shape. Newt Gingrich is certainly more than 100 pounds overweight, and no one dare aver that the situation is "glandular."
There is a threat to the national interest by he who would seek to become a public employee, once again. The sheer gluttony of Newt Gingrich is one of those things which everyone thinks about, but no one talks about, simply because we all have "issues" like obesity with which we must deal. Quite realistically, given his immense waistline, it is likely, coupled with the stress of the office, that Newt Gingrich would not endure a single term in the Oval Office absent cardio or pulmonary problems of earthquake magnitude. Then again, he might be taking a tumble with Callista (or her successor) and his ticker gives way in mid-stroke.
Frodo, for once, is serious. Newt Gingrich and his apparent disregard for his own health is a consideration for every resident of Middle Earth amid the threats from Mordor and beyond. Imagine if Sarah Palin, or Herman Cain, or Ron Paul were to accede to power because of the demise of the "President." Newt Gingrich owes the electorate a personal assurance to lose at least 100 pounds between this very moment and Election Day, 2012.
Why don't you bring up the issue Willard? Getting rid of 100 pounds of Gingrich fat would be your first accomplishment since "Romney care."
