    Divorcing his wife while she was still in the hospital recovering from cancer is Gingrich's own Chappaquiddick. While nobody but Gingrich and Jackie Battley will ever know the entire truth, the facts as they stand are just too damn creepy.

    Within the first two weeks. It will likely be a rehash of old scandals.

    That's a bad analogy. Being insensitive isn't the same as manslaughter.

    They're only the same in that they're really creepy and paint a super unflattering picture of the men, not that they're the same level of scandal.

    You referred to the hospital paper-serving as "Gingrich's own Chappaquiddick."

    No, it's unfair to report about republican candidates in anything but glowing terms. It's liberal bias. Just like reporting about democrats in anything other than scorn is a liberal bias.

    It would probably have been helpful for him if he hadn't been banging the young filly when he was leading the Republican investigation of President Clinton for his affair with Lewinsky.
