    I'm praying to every god and goddess imaginable that Newt Gingrich gets the nomination. It will be delightful to finally put to rest the Republican's belief that they have an ideological lock on morality. They would no longer be able to use their "family values" cudgel to beat people over the head with.

    Go Newt!

    Sorry, Newt is a short-timer. He can't stay with Mitt over the long primary haul. The only shot Newt has is for Mitt to drop out, even then I'd bet on Santorum.

    (just imagine the SNL skits that they could do with Newt's past)

    Besides if Sarah Palin endorses Newt, you just know that he's a loser. I haven't heard who Carl Rove likes, but a 68-year old Newt is not the guy.

    And if I ever decide I need to date one of them, this will certainly be relevant and meaningful.

    This is not a normal season. I would have agreed with you that Newt didn't have the staying power even a week ago, but if he actually manages to pull off South Carolina, it could be a game changer.

    Needless to say, I'm pulling for him ;)

    WSJ is obviously whoring for the Liberal Democrat Romney. I wouldn't vote for either one.

    As a general rule, I try to avoid judging people on their private lives - although I will confess that Newt makes that quite hard.

    Part of me wants Newt to do well and keep going just for the entertainment value of it. Who would have thought that the Republican primary election would be the #1 Reality TV program around?

    Wow, it's fun to watch Toro get desperate...

    Seriously, man, this is what you are reduced to?

    I don't care what Romney or Gingrich do to their wives.... I don't think I'd be want to be married to either one of them (even if I weren't a dude), and most women probably wouldn't want to be.

    Hey, Clinton was a shitty husband. Ronald Reagan walked out on his first wife. You know, that nasty old bag who was on Falcon Crest. they were still pretty decent presidents who made the decline of America somewhat tolerable. JFK was tapping girlfriends of mobster and Russian spies... and he was awesome.

    Jimmy Carter and George W. Bush were great husbands.. Don't think the good times were rolling.

    More to the point, given how little gender equality there is amongst Mormons, and to divorce Mittens, she'd have to leave the church, and be ostracized, the fact she's stayed married to him isn't much to squak about.

    I guess she should be happy that Mitten's venal sin isn't Lust, but Avarice. There are AmPad and GS Steel workers who wish that wasn't the case.

    Personally, I'm rather fond of Wrath as the seven deadlies go..

    Try paying attention. Karl Rove has been in the bag for Reversable Mittens for months. Which should be a sure sign that the Bush Dynasty knows he's a sure-fire loser. They aren't going to wait for 2020 for Jeb's shot. They want to roll him out in 2016, where they can honestly say, "Republicans only win when we have a Bush on the ballot."
