On Newt Gingrich, Infidelity, and Hypocrisy
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?
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.
