The only photo of Newt Gingrich with a Minor League Baseball mascot cow that you’re likely to see today

If you want to be president, you have to press the flesh … or the hoof, as the case may be. Yes, that’s Newt Gingrich grabbing a much-sought-after photo op with Tipper, the mascot cow of the Visalia Rawhide of the Class-A California League (Diamondbacks affiliate). It all went down at Tuesday’s World Ag Expo in Tulare, Calif., which goes to show, I guess, that Gingrich is in the race for the long haul. California’s Republican primary isn’t until June 5.

The all-important Tipper endorsement is great, of course, but everyone knows that the road to the White House goes through the Modesto Nuts.

(Thanks to the Visalia Rawhide and Ben’s Biz Blog).

    I’d have more faith in President Moocow.
