Newt strikes a chord with us old timers.

But Newt's comment also tells me how out of touch he is.
When was the last time you saw a gun rack in truck? Fifteen years ago? Twenty-five?
Sure, plenty of us still cling to our guns. And hearing Newt talk about gun racks makes me nostalgic for times decades ago, when nearly every truck (at least in the south) had a rack, and most those racks had something in 'em.
But I also hear a Newt Gingrich who's been inside the Beltway for so long, that when he tries to sound like one of us, he can easily miss the mark.
I like his sentiment. But I wish Newt had done more walking among us in the past decade or two.
