VP candidates announced

McCain has announced his Vice Presidential nomination. He initially wanted Björn Ulvaeus of ABBA, but Mr. Ulvaeus declined. Instead, McCain has settled on Newt Gingrich in an attempt to help shore up the youth vote. Mr. Gingrich was speaker of the house from 1995 to 1999. Since leaving office, he has co-authored a number of "historical fiction" books about the civil war, fantasizing about a world where the Confederate States were free to run their cotton fields how they chose (read: slaves).

Obama has also announced his VP pick, stating that he will run with himself.

Why would anyone want to name a child "Newt"? Did they want him to become an amphibian?
