Jingoistic Republican Hypocrisy Reaches a World-Record High

Via Talking Points Memo, our beloved ex-congressman Newt Gingrich, speaking to some "Christian" jerk on TV about his serial adultery:

"Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is in the early stages of a presidential campaign, spoke in an interview with David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network  about his history of adultery and divorces. And as Gingrich told it, he sought God's forgiveness -- and as for the events themselves, they were driven by how hard he was working and his great passion for America.

"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..." 

"Things happened."  He didn't voluntarily engage in multiple incidents of adultery (while at the same time trying to destroy Bill Clinton over a single similar incident;) oh, no, it just happened to him when he was distracted by  his love of our country.

Two lessons from this:

1.  There is absolutely no end to Republicans' conviction that the greedy suckers who support them will swallow any lie rather than give up the prospect of more tax cuts.

2.  No Conservative is ever, ever going to take responsibility for the consequences of their abominable behavior.  It is only a matter of time before Newt explains to us how his adultery is actually Obama's fault.

Huh? With most people, when they've been "working far too hard", they end up being too tired to shag their regular partner adequately -- not fired up to take on someone extra. Maybe he was on speed.

Man, I hope so, but how much better are the rest of these Republican crooks? They're all bought and paid for tools of the rich; the only difference is that some of them are a lot slicker at covering it up.

"It is only a matter of time before Newt explains to us how his adultery is actually Obama's fault."

In a way he's already said that. His "great passion for America" translates as a rage about having to share the country with anyone to the left of Mussolini.
' Darn it, I just wouldn't have betrayed my wife and been shown to be just another hypocritical dick if it weren't for them damn liberals! '

Also I get a strong whiff of a conceit that he feels he DESERVES to have a little fuckfun because he works so hard, and in his heart of darkness he doesn't really regret a damned thing.
