SPECIAL CHRISTMAS CONTEST! WINNER GETS SOMETHING I'LL SWIPE WHILE REPORTING ON NEW HAMPSHIRE CAMPAIGN TRAIL!
You've had plenty of opportunity recently to watch the great Newt Gingrich in action -- in debates, making speeches, giving interviews.... you should have a pretty good sense of him by now.
So here's the contest: write a Newt Gingrich response (whatever length you think appropriate), if the great Newt were to be asked the following question by a reporter or debate panelist:
"Mr. Gingrich: We must stop Christmas from coming. But how?"
Send your most Newtonian response to firstname.lastname@example.org before New Year's Eve. I'll post good ones, and will select a winner with the help of some cohorts.
Then, during the week leading up to the New Hampshire primary, I (or perhaps my colleague Chris Faraone, if he sees something better) will abscond with some piece of campaign memorabilia and send it to the winner.
Remember, answer how Newt would answer! Send to email@example.com! Before January 1st!
