From The Rachel Maddow Show: Newt Blusters / Attacks Media / Avoids Answering Pertinent "Values", "Hypocrisy" Questions

Friday Night's GOP Debate:

Newt Gingrich was asked  to comment on his 2nd wife's, Marianne's, interviews - in which she claims he came to her - after she'd been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and after he'd already been cheating on her; and whilst, simultaneously, he was condemning then Pres. Clinton for his lack of moral leadership - and he asked her for an "open marriage".

Newt's holier-than-thou response was to use the Good Ol' Reliable GOP M.O./Safety Net:

He responded by playing - to the hilt - the part of a poor, innocent victim of that evil "Mass Media" whilst ferociously attacking the big, bad "Mass Media" for making such a big deal about what he felt was a private matter.

And in doing so, Newt avoided (this time, anyway) actually having to answer some very pertinent questions (and he did this to much applause/hooting and hollering).

And whilst - certainly - under normal circumstances, as a rule it is a fact that Newt's or anyone's sex life is neither newsworthy nor is it anyone else's business...

The Fact Is This: These are not even remotely "normal circumstances".

The reason that Newt's marriage(s) is (are) an exception to that rule is due to the fact that, historically, Newt has - militantly, if not religiously - portrayed himself as "Mr. Family Values/Traditional Marriage"-Guy...
Whilst he was publicly vilifying others for their extramarital affairs and...
Whilst he was simultaneously railing against same-sex marriage as an affront to "traditional marriage" and...
Oh yeah ~ Whilst "Mr. Family Values/Traditional Marriage-Guy" Newt, himself, was actively cheating on his own wife... No, wait... Hold that thought.

Correction: "...his own wives".

Hey, Look Everybody: It's the Great White Hypocrite!
