In response to the Jan. 28 Augusta Chronicle Opinion section cartoon by Rick McKee:
Newt Gingrich, an accomplished American citizen in contention for the Republican presidential nomination, is depicted in a skimpily clad swimsuit somewhere on the Florida beaches, holding a sign that says “Free Kisses,” vying for women’s votes. This political sketch attempts to underrate Newt’s distinguished delivery of triumph in South Carolina.
It seems to me that the giving of oneself toward a pursuit of higher purpose such as running for office of the president of the United States should be commended.
If Newt Gingrich sweeps the Sunshine State in victory, I know of one woman that might just be glad to give him a peck on the cheek!
