A recent poll shows Newt to have a 25/63 favorability/unfavorability rating, making him the undisputed "Most Disliked Politician in America."

Since the recent visit by Rick Santorum was moved from the "Baby Mabee" to the mothership to accommodate the crowd, perhaps Newt's visit should be moved to a smaller venue to avoid embarrassment.

I'm sorry for the off-comment.. but when I read "Callista" and see that picture... I can only think Callisto, the round moon of Jupiter. I don't know why.

Shiny, round, and silvery.

Callista and Callisto are one and the same according to Wikipedia, with the final vowel shifting from "o" to "a" for use as a feminine name. The nymph Callisto was seduced by Zeus, who had disguised himself as Artemis (a female deity whose name is considered masculine nowadays), he got her pregnant, and then Hera turned her into a bear. Zeus put Callisto and their son Arcas in the heavens as Ursa Major and Ursa Minor. Hera arranged with Tethys, wife of Oceanus, to deprive them of water, so they are doomed to spend eternity in the sky above the horizon.

For some reason, this picture makes me think of Cloris Leachman as Nurse Diesel in High Anxiety or Tilda Swinton from The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
