    make him presentable for TV?  You've on TV a but; don't you get groomed?  Didn't Keith, doesn't Colbert?  Is it weird because it's his wife?  Because he's fat?  What?

    Five of the first six of these were great.  Including the grooming one is lousy.

      wifely wife wife-ily grooming him as though he's a favored pet or a doll. There's something about it. I had no problem at first when the "grooming" was being done by a professional, which, as you say, is standard for people going on TV.
      But there's something about Callista's plastic quality and her Stepford Wife style that in combination with the grooming behavior makes me think of scenes of potentates being attended to by female slaves. My guess is that Gingrich has the same image, but with a very different reaction.
      I think it's also because he's just such a disgusting person. And I'm not talking about his looks. I find Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum disgusting also.
