Somewhere, Mitt Romney is chuckling—probably along with his one-and-only-ever wife, Ann.
The former Massachusetts governor has, of late, been trying to draw a contrast between his own stable family life and the comparatively more tumultuous one of his closest rival, former House speaker Newt Gingrich.
And now he’s got this: In the “Callista’s Canvas” section of the Gingrich campaign Web site, where visitors can “meet” the candidate’s current (as in the third of three) wife and read press clippings about her, there’s an odd headline. “A Tale of Three Wives,” it reads.
Hmm... isn’t that a Shakespeare play. No?
Oh, maybe it’s a reference to the fact that Gingrich is thrice-married? (And in rather dramatic fashion.)
No, actuallly, it’s the headline to a story by CBN news about three wives currently hitting the campaign trail on behalf of their husbands: Callista Gingrich, Mary Kaye Huntsman—wife of former Utah governor Jon Huntsman—and Anita Perry, wife of Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
Does that make the headline a triple entendre, we wonder, instead of a double?
