Newt, Hollywood’s calling
by Daniel Kessler
August 15, 2008
It’s been said that Hollywood and the World Wide Web have long been the domain of progressives, but there’s increasing chatter that the Right needs to find their own voice in these mediums. And maybe now they have. No doubt buoyed by The Dark Knight’s recent box office success, the Drill Here, Drill Now crowd seems sufficiently encouraged enough to try out a new star–Newt Gingrich. Newt, last seen in Al Gore’s We Campaign commercials relaxing with Hillary Clinton on a couch and calling for action on climate, has a new video up on his America Solutions site encouraging those swell Gen Xers to send in their own videos about destroying the planet, er, I mean, drilling to reduce pain at the pump. Watch the video here. The best submission, selected by Newt himself, wins free gas for a year. Hurrah!
If you’re not properly inspired by Newt’s first foray into the 21st century, you can take real action to solve our energy problems here.
