Newt Gingrich; That Exemplary, Shining Example of Conservative Christian Values
Posted by politicalpartypooper on April 10, 2010
Republicans and Conservatives have a new-old hero: Newt Gingrich. Amazingly, Gingrich is being seriously discussed as one of their candidates for a 2012 Presidential election run. Conservatives everywhere hold Gingrich up as a shining example of Conservative principles and family values. So, what do those principles and values look like?
Taken from Wikipedia:
Gingrich has been married three times. He married Jackie Battley, his former high school geometry teacher, when he was 19 years old. She was seven years his senior at 26 years old. They had two daughters. The couple decided to divorce after Gingrich told his wife of his extra-marital affair while she was recovering from cancer surgery. In 1981, six months after his divorce was final, Gingrich wed Marianne Ginther. He remained married to Ginther until 2000, when they divorced. Shortly thereafter, Gingrich then married Callista Bisek, with whom he was conducting an extra-marital affair during the Congressional investigation of Bill Clinton‘s perjury relating to his affair with 23-year-old intern, Monica Lewinsky
On the surface, I see nothing wrong. Yup, Gingrich is a shining example of exemplary Christian behavior, telling everybody how to live their lives while he acts like a heathen all of his. He should fit right in.
With people like Gingrich, America doesn’t ever have to worry about Socialism. We’ll be too focused on making sure we toe the Christian Conservative Hypocrisy Line.
Newt, you had an affair while your first wife was undergoing treatment for cancer? Who does that?
Oh yeah, John Edwards does that.
Need I say more? Conservatives and Republicans; if this is the best you got, maybe it’s time to fold your tent.
