Picking Newt's nits

OK, so Newt Gingrich wasn't quite as cold and calculating a former husband as often portrayed. He was only 32 degrees instead of below zero.

That in essence is the effort in setting the record straight about his divorce from his first wife. She wasn't dying of cancer when he entered her hospital room -- she was recovering from cancer surgery -- and the divorce they discussed was no surprise because she wanted one.

I feel better now about Gingrich's family and interpersonal skills don't you?

But what about cheating on his second wife while leading the effort to impeach Bill Clinton? That's almost as hypocritical as taking $1.6 to $1.8 million from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac as an historian while urging jail time for Barney Frank because he spoke to a agency lobbyist.

Just how many angels are dancing on the head of Newt's pin?

More Newtron Bombs. He wants to go back to traditional religion. Does that mean I need to sacrifice a bull today?
