On Newt Gingrich, Infidelity, and Hypocrisy

blogvader:

Newt Gingrich said the following when addressed during a recent debate about his reported request for an ‘open marriage’ when his second wife discovered he was cheating:

“It’s trash, and I am appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that,”

Republican voters seem to be lining up behind him to accuse the media of character assassination, which begs the question, where were these fucks when Anthony Weiner was getting torpedoed?  You know, the congressman who was exposed as retaliation for investigating Clarence Thomas’s corrupt use of the Citizens United ruling to make hundreds of thousands? Oh yes, you were lining up in chat rooms, message boards, and your blogs to call him a degenerate and demand that he resign. 

And you want to hold Newt up as some kind of victim now that his wives are disclosing how horribly he treated them?

Really?

Why are you not demanding that Newt Gingrich drop out of the race, in light of the recent revelations that his degenerate sexual tendencies are far worse than he disclosed, and the basic fact that he treated his wives like dogshit?

Do you really want someone in the Oval Office who’s not only a racist homophobe, a warmonger, and a corporatist, but can’t even live up to a promise to love, honor, and cherish his own wife?

Of course you do…. as long as he’s a Republican.

Obviously. Got to get some people in the White House who’ll fight for family values, even if they have none of their own.

That thing people keep going on about, where the Bible defines marriage as being only between a man and a woman? Yeah, about that…

LGBTQ* People You Should Know
GLADYS BENTLEY (picture NY, circa 1930s)
 
Bentley flirted with double entendres in her music and dabbled in double dress in her day to day life. Her blues music and sultry lyrics dared anyone to question their true meaning while she flirted with female patrons as she sang. She frequented speakeasies like The Clam House in Harlem and caused a bit of a stir when she married her white New Jersey girlfriend in a civil wedding ceremony.
 
Much of Bentley’s life would later be subject to the fear/hate of a McCarthy run system in the late 1940s’/1950s.

Marriage From A Kid’s Perspective
1. HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHOM TO MARRY? 
You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming. — Alan, age 10
No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.– Kristen, age 10
2. WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED? Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then. — Camille, age 10  3. HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids. — Derrick, age 8  
4. WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON
Both don’t want any more kids. – Lori, age 8
5. WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
-Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough. — Lynnette, age 8 
-On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date. — Martin, age 10   6. WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE? -When they’re rich. — Pam, age 7
The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn’t want to mess with that. – - Curt, age 7
-The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It’s the right thing to do. – - Howard, age 8    7. IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED? It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them. — Anita, age 9
 8. HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN’T GET MARRIED? There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn’t there? — Kelvin, age 8
And the #1 Favorite is…
9. HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK? Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a dump truck. — Ricky, age 10, way to go Ricky
