    I'm sorry...but I find this hilarious.... Nah..I'm really not sorry...it's just funny....
    I guess I believe in the old “He that is without sin among you, let him cast the first stone at her.”

    I realize that there were other issues, like ..um, lying under oath...but just find it amusing that he was involved in an extramarital affair while leading the crusade against Clinton....oh well...
    Politics make strange bedfellows...

    part of the article....

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich was having an extramarital affair even as he led the charge against President Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair, he acknowledged in an interview with a conservative Christian group.

    "The honest answer is yes," Gingrich, a potential 2008 Republican presidential candidate, said in an interview with Focus on the Family founder James Dobson to be aired Friday, according to a transcript provided to The Associated Press.

    "There are times that I have fallen short of my own standards. There's certainly times when I've fallen short of God's standards."
    Gingrich argued in the interview, however, that he should not be viewed as a hypocrite for pursuing Clinton's infidelity.

    Does this MATTER?

    I mean, c'mon.

    Does anybody really think Newt is a trustible, truthful fellow?

    Is THIS the thing that'll break your trust in Newt?

    he didn't say "I did not have sex with that woman". I really don't care who has sex with who or what and wish people would get over it. Thirteen people associated with Clintonista crimes died mysteriously and we still harp about him getting a hummer from a office temp; that's pretty screwed up, even perverse priority anyway you dice it.
    It doesn't bother me in the least who Gingrich or Clinton had sex with or when but it does kind of surprise me that either one of them could get laid at all.

    Agree. The difference between the two is the lie.
