Callista Gingrich Has More in Common with Russell Brand Than You Might Think

Quick, what does Callista Gingrich, wife of former house speaker Newt Gingrich, have in common with kooky British actor Russell Brand?

Hint: It’s the same thing she shares with Madonna, Will Smith and Jerry Seinfeld. This unlikely collection of folks are all authors of children’s books. Gingrich’s latest kiddie tome debuted today. “From Sea to Shining Sea” is the fourth installment of the history-for-kiddos “Ellis the Elephant” series, and follows the title character (he’s an elephant, see, just like the GOP mascot!) in a Zelig-like historical journey with explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark.

Newt Gingrich tweeted this glowing review:

Excited that Ellis the Elephant is back for a new adventure! Great job on From Sea to Shining Sea, @CallyGingrich! http://t.co/gTuS0viTQw
