Newt Gingrich: Dancing Queen

From the Truth is Stranger than Fiction File via Celeste Katz in the New York Daily News:

The Republican firebrand is such a fan of the sugary Swedish songsters that his cell phone ringtone is the group’s hit “Dancing Queen.” Gingrich also thinks “Mamma Mia,” a movie starring Meryl Streep that features the tune, is “amazing.”

“It’s just fun,” he said. “When they do ‘Dancing Queen’ in the movie, I just think it’s a great sequence. I love that sequence — the energy, the excitement.”

Gingrich’s secret passion for ABBA was revealed when his cell phone suddenly rang during a campaign stop in Iowa, where he has been trying to launch a presidential campaign.

“Dancing Queen,” Gingrich sheepishly admitted, is his ringtone.

“My wife warned me this would happen,” he said, referring to third wife, Calista.

Gingrich said Calista’s ringtone is another ABBA tune, but he declined to divulge which one saying he wanted to add “a little mystique.”

“I’ll let you guess,” he said, grinning, “I’m not telling.”
