Newt Gingrich’s life has been a political rollercoaster, with perhaps the biggest moment coming in an upcoming episode of Parks and Recreation. You see, Newt’s love for steak simply could not be overlooked by the show that already features fictional Unvegan Hero Ron Swanson.
So how did this all come about? Pretty simple actually. While Parks and Rec was filming at St. Elmo Steak House (possible reference to Rob Lowe’s classic St. Elmo’s Fire?!), Newt Gingrich stopped by to grab a steak and found the place closed. But, rather than turn him away, the show took the opportunity to write him into a scene.
So, for loving steak and for using that love of steak to parlay yourself into a cameo on a hilarious TV show, Newt Gingrich, you are a true Unvegan Hero!
