After watching the ridiculous hypocrisy of Newt Gingrich as he feigned offense at the mention of his marital infidelity, I had three thoughts:
1) For Newt Gingrich, presidential marriages are off limits and to discuss them is “despicable”. Unless you’re Bill Clinton.
2) Newt Gingrich is “appalled” that John King would begin a presidential debate with the topic of infidelity. That’s reserved for impeachment hearings!
3) Newt Gingrich believes “the destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country [and] harder to attract decent people to run for office…” And since they couldn’t find a lot of decent people, the Republicans are stuck with Newt.
Its disappointing to see another reminder of the caliber of American running for the most powerful office in the world (if you exclude the CEO of Goldman Sachs). But there are literally millions of people in this nation who will not only vote for him, but actually believe he is the best choice to lead our nation.
Oh, heap on the disappointment and just keep shoveling.
