Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann Hugging All Up On Each Other While Talking About Cake (Video)

Yesterday, New Times' correspondent Victor Gonzalez caught up with none other than former GOP presidential hopefuls (and, hence, rivals) Newt Gingrich and Michele Bachmann. The primary battle apparently didn't come between their friendship, because the two caressed each others' Republican backs with their Republican hands while talking about things like Newt's wife and Ann Romney's delicious cakes.

But for some reason, even though our correspondent was asking the questions, the San Francisco Chronicle recorded the whole thing and put it on its website first, because the media is weird.

(The Welsh cake at the heart of this compelling interview, in case you missed the big breaking news, is apparently Ann Romney's "speciality," which she baked for some lucky RNC delegates.)
