Newt and Callista's Historical Fun Times!

The Gingriches want to learn ya.
Slate political reporter Dave Weigel has an interesting three-minute video up in which he takes a look at a series of historical documentaries from Newt Gingrich and his wife Callista.

He points out that Callista hasn't been in the public eye terribly often, but she's omnipresent in these videos, which are about things like Ronald Reagan (of course), the Civil War, Samuel Adams, energy sources and sharia law.

The videos were produced by Citizens United, the group of Hillary: The Movie and Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commission fame, along with Gingrich Productions. They come off as kind of schlocky — the music accompanying the sharia law clip is particularly heavy-handed — but Weigel notes that they can at least provide insight into how the Gingriches interact with one another. With lots of staring.
