This from the slimebag who cheats on his wives when they become seriously ill:

 

Let's remember, Newt famously dumped wife #1 for wife #2 while wife #1 was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery. As in literally went to the hospital to present her with divorce papers while she was recovering from surgery for uterine cancer.

He eventually dumped wife #2 for wife #3 shortly after wife #2 was diagnosed with MS back in 1999. And he was having the affair on wife #2 with wife #3 while he was turning the country upside down trying to drive Bill Clinton from office over his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

Yea, we can see YOU have boundaries, Newt. POS.

I speak rhetorically, but you mean, Trish, judgement!

LOL, Dennis, this guy makes me wanna puke. I could really lose a lot of weight on the Newt Gingrich diet...just hearing his name is enough to purge oneself!

@ Trish:

Anorexia at it's finest then.

@Dennis....Yes, it is! Fool proof! You don't even have to stick your finger down your throat...Just the name "Newt" will get the process going! LOL (I apologize to all the the little slimy newts who have to share their name with this slimy dude)...it's just not fair. They should sue.

If only they had legal precedent, viz. newts had 'rights'.

This is no 'human'. Albeit he is one... What I find oxymoronic is that religion at it's finest engages and paradoxically pronounces what we are not. It reduces ourselves down to the very thing it denies. It takes us as primates on a level with the rest currently surviving while denying this, and also denies us the dignity of being homo sapiens sapiens. However, we were 'breathed from divinity'. I find it more fulfilling to be of my heritage of reality. To value a woman's care in mutuality with mine, as a man in reality, is infintesably large over betraying her trust. As a human. Not and as a bonobo, or an angel either.

It's funny how all these so-called Christians talk about family values, how atheists couldn't possibly have morals or good judgement without God, and yet we see and hear day after day after day about all the atrocities these "good" Christians commit every F-ing day. Then other "good" Christians either claim so-and-so wasn't REALLY a Christian, or better yet, they defend them for "falling from grace" and support them as they admit their sins and swear it won't happen again. I am so sick of their hypocrisy. Atheists don't go around defending bad behavior or ignorance, whether you're an atheist or not. We will call you out and hold you accountable. Christians won't do that to their own...but they'll sure crucify us any chance they get!

The British press would have a field day if a politician in the UK made comments like that. I'm glad that here at least religious politicians are marginalised and placed in the same 'extreme' (a little harsh) category as the far right, far left and Monster Raving Loony party candidates.

@Holland, that is a damn good question: Why is there a complete absence of scientists running for office? Maybe because they're too ethical in general. To be a politician, I'm sure one would have to conform in some ways and go against their own personal morals just to get anything done. A politician who would actually stay 100% true to themselves, who truly wants to do the right thing for all, would probably be chewed up and spit out before they could get very far. That's really the big problem with our political atmosphere. You gotta play along to a certain point or you're toast. I would love to see some great scientific minds with a belief in fairness for all, run for President, but I guess they're just not political types.
