    This crap:

    Newt Gingrich's Three Marriages Mean He Might Make A Strong President -- Really | Fox News

    is an excellent example of what happens when someone decides to pimp their professional credentials for cash:

    More hilarity at the original link (and it actually gets a lot more funny).

    At this point, I am only left to wonder what Ablow's angle is? It's obviously not the perpetuation of legitimate, evidence-based, psychiatric medicine.

    Forensic psychiatry is not evidence based.

    Remember when Clinton lied about his cheating? Psycho-Babelists came out of the woodwork and claimed that "lying is good for a marriage".

    The Libs ate it up!

    I remember that actor "Dustbin" Hoffman said about Clinton: "Well it's better that he use his crotch rocket than launching rockets", or something like that.

    Cheaters are professional liars, so of course cheating and politics go hand in hand. We should not be surprised that some people will try and rationalize it. How many presidents and other powerful men have committed adultery? I would imagine the number would be higher than the norm.

    But I do find it baffling that so many women are attracted to him. He must have some kind of charm that doesn't come across so well on T.V.

    We just dedicated a statue to Martin Luther King, Jr. What does that tell you? Is JFK not generally acknowleged to be one of the best American presidents?

    Absurd. It certainly is.

    This crap, is not. It's basically OPED from a psychiatrist who is trying to act like his professional credentials and opinion make his endorsement have more teeth.

    Dustin Hoffman is a doctor?

    That's news to me.

    Feel free to link to any of your claims.

    Keith Ablow: "I don't believe in talking about a candidates personal life..... Now let me use Newt Gingrich's personal life to prove why you should vote for him!"
