Fail Quote: Gingrich cheated for his country!

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich
Newt Gingrich

From world-class hypocrite Newt Gingrich, trying to excuse his serial adulterating:

“There’s no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate," Gingrich told CBN's David Brody, in an interview taped at the Iowa Faith and Freedom Coalition and posted online Tuesday night.

Remember, this is a guy who started by cheating on his first wife while she was in the hospital with cancer and served her divorce papers while she was convalescing, and then took on a second wife – on whom he subsequently cheated with his future third wife shortly after wife #2 was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. And this latter part took place while he was doing everything he could to impeach then-President Bill Clinton for his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

But, hey, the fact that he’s clearly got balls massive enough to leave a mile-wide crater were they ever dropped onto the surface of the Earth is no reason to impugn this patriot’s love for America. After all, all that cheating and fornicating and two-faced pontificating and betraying of his supposed life-partners (when they were crippled with illness, no less) – that’s not just the behavior of a selfish pig who has zero regard for the consequences of his own actions; it’s just what a man does when he’s feeling so gosh-darn passionate about his country! Not to mention that he never actually did any of those horrible things; they just “happened” to him. After all, leaving two wives in a row the moment they get sick – and chastising other guys for their own affairs in the meantime – that’s just stuff that happens to people, right?
