    Just wondering if Cyber Newt is as hypocritical as Human Newt?

    Yeah, I know. It's only a "virtual" Contract With America. But consider, he's also thinner and can jump as high as Super Mario.

    Hmmm... Looks like Newt forgot to digitally include his other chin.

    Typical Republican. They are all a bunch of empty headed dolls.

    Well, look at it this way: At least he's trying to shake the filth of DC off his feet. Wish more would try the same. This bulbous nosed debouchery of the politicians today is a stomach turning stench.

    I was there and he did a very good job. He is a great speaker with great ideas.

    I saw a piece on this. If he runs, this is supposed to help get him elected? I don't think so–

    Oh,I get it CNN; It's all a game. He's going to run but he decided not to do it? This was all a virtual reality media experience? Thanks CNN but try being more professional about reporting non-events.
