Naughty Newt

“Newt Gingrich is so pro-marriage, he can’t stop doing it. He is so morally upright, that he’s only had sex after he was married. Just not always to the woman he was married to.” —Stephen Colbert

“In a new interview, Newt Gingrich says he cheated on two of his wives because he was too consumed with love for his country. Yeah, apparently he misunderstood the phrase, ‘Please rise for the Pledge of Allegiance.'” —Conan O’Brien

By now, most of us are aware of the recent snafu at the Republican Primary Debate where moderator John King opened the event by asking Newt Gingrinch about his ex-wife’s claim that he asked her for an open marriage.

In my opinion, the only reason this story is relevant is due to Newt’s strong stance on traditional family values.

I had no care that President Clinton received oral sex by another while married.  His sexual behavior did not affect me and it should not have affected our country.

But we’re a sex obsessed culture, who feeds off  scandals, and does an excellent job distracting us from real life concerns.

I am even  a proponent for open marriage as an alternative to traditional monogamy, so why am I bothered about Newt?


The whole ‘practice what you preach’ philosophy.

We have seen over and over again the ones admonishing sex in society,  are in deed acting out on those same admonishments.

I selected the above men due to the wonderful mix of sex, religion and politics (three of my favorite topics).

Yet this can be a toxic mix if your message or values oppose your own behavior.

The Kings of Hypocrisy.

If you want to take a stand on a topic such as traditional marriage, I assume you are also engaging in such a  marriage yourself.

Newt- I can care less how you get your rocks off,  just get off your soap box.

When marriage rights are prevented to gay and lesbian couples because supporters such as the Duplicitous Newt Gingrinch emphasize marriage is ‘supposed’ to be between one man and one woman.

Then hypocrisy flourishes while human rights are denied, judged, demoralized.

Newt, get honest, live your life as you wish.

Be a Naught Newt.

Leave your bedroom politics out of our homes, relationships and our country.  Leave traditional marriage to those who wish you have one and give others the right to be in one.
