Taking The Pledge

Newt Gingrich, apparently in an attempt to be the most poisonous Republican party presidential candidate, wrote a letter to The Family Leader expressing his support for the group's marriage vow. Read the marriage vow first. It covers a helluva lot more than just marriage.

Here's my favorite part:

Fierce defense of the First Amendment‟s rights of Religious Liberty and Freedom of Speech, especially against the intolerance of any who would undermine law-abiding American citizens and institutions of faith and conscience for their adherence to, and defense of, faithful heterosexual monogamy.

Yeah, this country is being ripped apart by those allegedly intolerant people who complain about extremely intolerant folks like this imposing their will on everyone else. But I digress.

Newt pledges to remain faithful to his third wife, Callista. Callista happens to be the woman he had an affair with while he was still married to his second wife. He was having an affair with her while he was investigating Bill Clinton for obstruction of justice and perjury during the Monica Lewinski scandal. But after two failed attempts, he has decided to stick with the beautiful blonde wife who is twenty years his junior. Nice.

Even if Callista is beautiful (chacun a son gout, as they say in Georgia), her beauty is hardly an indicator of either Newt's hypocrisy or Clinton's.

What a shallow, pointless election lies ahead of us. Two utterly worthless, corrupt candidates from the major parties will agree to talk about anything other than America's real problems.

Obama engaged in a beautiful speech in Kansas though. Too bad it was divorced from the reality of his ongoing affair with Wall Street.

Neither Obama or Gingrich (or Romney) will be prove any more faithful to his oath of office than his corrupt predessors Clinton and Bush. Blankfein will still have his way with us, whether we consent or not.

I'll bet you a cigar.
