The REAL Problem with Newt’s Infidelity
*For the record, I don’t like any of our choices in the GOP primary, so I’m not doing this to help any of the others. We’re screwed no matter what. Yes, I’m Polly Sunshine.
While I do feel badly for Newt’s first wife, Jackie Battley, and daughters, when it comes to elections, I don’t really care about Newt’s affairs. I figure anyone sociopathic enough to want to be president is unlikely to be a faithful spouse. The pool we have to choose from generally sucks.
And I don’t feel the least bit sorry for Marianne Ginther with her sob story about how Newt cheated on her and left her eight months after being diagnosed with MS. She was the tramp he was sleeping with when he left his first wife...who was fighting cancer at the time. Sorta just sounds like Karma to me. (meow)
The REAL ick factor in all this is wife #3, Callista Bisek Gingrich, mistress during marriage #2 and potential First Lady of the United States. Just let that sink in for a minute.
I hold women to a higher standard then men. I’m hardly a prude, and stuff happens in marriages that is just between spouses. But the simple truth is, we are the gate keepers to societal standards around here...and I’m not interested in having to call some home wrecking hussy “First Lady.” She’s no lady and I don’t want her in my White House.
