Newt will do just fine, as he speaks to the problems that American people are facing, and he speaks in a language that the average Joe 6 Pack can understand. Mitt speaks of past achievements and long gone glory, but the people want some one who will go to Washington with a “ Flame Thrower” and clean out the rats from both party's.

What about the MacPhersons

About the time that automobiles were introduced, they invented a dance called "The McPherson Strut."

The name Macpherson — or MacPherson or McPherson, according to different spellings — comes from the Gaelic “Mac a’ Phearsain” which means “Son of the Parson.”

The Parson in question was Muriach, a 12th Century parson, or lay preacher (in the Gaelic “pearsain” or “pears-eaglais,” literally “person of the church”) had a different meaning. Before the Reformation in Highland Scotland, the religious leader of a parish was a priest and the parson was the steward of church property, responsible for the collection of tithes. The history of Clan Macpherson has been called “The Posterity of the Three Brethren” as the three grandsons of Muriach are the antecedents of the three main clan families, Cluny, Pitmain, and Invereshie. - from Wikipedia
