Quite funny to hear Newt Gingrich, a leader of the "family values" party, admitting he was having an affair while on the warpath regarding Bill Clinton & Monica. And he's supposedly waiting in wings to join the 2008 prez race? Well, why not, it's not like marital fidelity and the like has stopped the other dudes from throwing their hats in the ring.

As Steve Benen pointed out:
Sen. John McCain (affair, divorce), former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (affair, divorce, affair, divorce), and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (divorce, affair, nasty divorce).
Great to see that hypocrisy and self-righteous finger-pointing is still tradition #1 in the GOP -- their longest held tradition (and the one thing they're extremely competent at upholding).

UPDATE: Newt's admission won't stop Rev. Falwell from backing him. Figures. For the religious right, it's always been about politics first, with God and Jesus a far, far distant priority.
