The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
I'm older than dirt and remember dozens of times that Newt was on the front of tabloids after being caught in his many, many extra-martial trysts. I seriously belly-laugh every time I see Newt trying to sell his commitment to 'family values'. They may as well trust Hugh Hefner saying he has 'family values' because Newt and Hefner are birds of a feather.
I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.
Wait....I thought Gingrich was a conservative who espoused strong values.
She promised she could end his run with one interview, but unless there's something in the interview that Yahoo! didn't mention then she fell far short in my opinion.
As an aside, I strongly disagree with Marianne's assertion that an open marriage isn't a marriage.
I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.
Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
Although I am not a Gingrich supporter mostly because he is a republican progressive, I am not inclined to take at face value the word of a scorned ex as gospel. Shame on ABC for rolling in the gutter, and I feel sorry that Mary Anne has so much bitterness over a decade later.
Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

These sort of character issues for Newt have not been vetted by the Republican Party yet. Do you think ABC has any liberal ties? Premiering the interview two days before the SC primary? Come on...what happened to unbiased reporting!
I cannot stand Newt as either a politician or the person he appears to be (in all honesty I don't know the man, never met him so I merely am stating this based on what I have seen) but I have absolutely no use for ex wives, boyfriends, lovers etc who wait until a crucial time to try to pearl harbor someone. She looks to be a cheap whore trying to get as much money as possible. He apparently is a slut himself but this sort of crap is beneath contempt
That interview was weak! On what planet is that a "bombshell" interview?
There was nothing new there. Won't change any minds.
