Quickie: Careful With That Axe, Callista

Republican presidential candidate, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, with his wife Callista, holds an oversize replica of an ax after signing a pledge to cut taxes, spending and government, Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2011, in Concord, N.H. (AP Photo/Jim Cole)

Part of me, of course, says, Oooh, bad idea. The other, more dominant part of my brain, however, shrieks, Giant-sized novelty axe! Giant-sized novelty axe!

If the only photoshop edit you did was to narrow the picture enough to cut out Newt. It would frighten children and put Callista on a No Fly List lickety-split!

When I get home I'll be able to access the high-res image, so I may be able to pull out a tight shot of Callista's face here. It will be MAGNIFICENT.

But not "cut spending" when what Callista's buying comes in those sky-blue boxes and tied with white satin ribbon, eh what?

I've been longing for more Callistaproduct, and here it is. THANK YOU!

The giant-sized novelty axe is just another appealingly retro thing about our bubble-cut goddess.

Scarier than Joan Crawford in Strait-Jacket.

They've got to be kidding. Please? Hide turkeys, HIDE!
Thanksgiving is around the corner.

Matty: But less scary than Joan Crawford in Mommy Dearest.

"Christina! Bring Me The Axe!!!"

When your hair is whiter than your teeth, then it's time for a new rinse. I'm just sayin'

She needs to be on TV more, because she is the face of the Republican party, imo.

Why does she always have to be in the picture? Not only in the picture, but the center of it? Who exactly is running for office here?

Well, Halloween IS Monday.

Peteykins: The response to "Christina! Bring me the axe!"

Christina: "Get your own axe! I'm NOT one of YOUR FANS!!!!!!!!!!"

Now that is one Stepford Wife if I ever saw one...and unfortunately for her, one who didn't get the 'first picks' on the assembly line.
Added to that...those are some very scary eyes!!

Peteykins, this is really scarey.

The closeup photo is genuinely frightening. Thanks for the nightmares, Peteykins.

I'm sure that Callista's parents are glad that they paid for braces on her little fangs.

You're going to thank me one day, said her mama.

You can see the little lines mid-tooth.

I just hope they were removed before Newtie swept her off her feet.

Braces? Those look like capped/crowned teeth.
