Oh Newt...

Figures doesn't it? Years after leading a witch hunt that cost the American tax payer 60 million dollars Newt Gingrich (the GOP's moral compass) has admitted that he had an affair while the investigation into Clinton's extra-curriculars were going on. I find it hilarious that the guy leading the right wing charge in the 90's has been married 3 times. Once to his high school geometry teacher (who he later started divorce proceedings on while she was recovering from cancer in the hospital) and later to a congressional aide 20 years younger than he. While we're at it, look at the leading candidate for the GOP, Rudy Guiliani...how many times has this guy been married? The last divorce was very public and very messy (having his mistress live in the mayor's residence? yuk.) and in part led to the estrangement of his son.

Listen, I don't really care that much about what you do in your life from a relationship standpoint. Relationships are hard. But don't come to me from the moral high ground. Life is a struggle for us all. Marriage is a challenge to everyone, but shouldn't everyone have the right to accept that challenge? How can Newt say gay marriage is wrong? It's not like his straight marriages have a great track record. Guiliani used to be pro-gay rights, now that he's running for the GOP nomination it appears that he is changing his tune? Why? is it to protect the children Rudy? Maybe you should have thought of that before you publicly humiliated your spouse by having your girlfriend live in your home at the same time.

Did you see Bill Maher this weekend? He had a rant about Giuliani that was priceless. I wish I'd have taped it.
