Is Newt Irresistible to Women?

There are some things in life that seem obvious. One is that Newt Gingrich is a corrupt sleeze-bag serial adulterer with an inflated ego and the ass to go with it. But then I hear this is not true. According to Keith Ablow on Fox News, Gingrich’s tawdry affairs are actually a sign the moral strength that is sorely needed in this country. Here’s how it goes:

I want to be coldly analytical, not moralize, here. I want to tell you what Mr. Gingrich’s behavior could mean for the country, not for the future of his current marriage. So, here’s what one interested in making America stronger can reasonably conclude—psychologically—from Mr. Gingrich’s behavior during his three marriages:

1) Three women have met Mr. Gingrich and been so moved by his emotional energy and intellect that they decided they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with him.

2) Two of these women felt this way even though Mr. Gingrich was already married.

3 ) One of them felt this way even though Mr. Gingrich was already married for the second time, was not exactly her equal in the looks department and had a wife (Marianne) who wanted to make his life without her as painful as possible.

Conclusion: When three women want to sign on for life with a man who is now running for president, I worry more about whether we’ll be clamoring for a third Gingrich term, not whether we’ll want to let him go after one.

4) Two women—Mr. Gingrich’s first two wives—have sat down with him while he delivered to them incredibly painful truths: that he no longer loved them as he did before, that he had fallen in love with other women and that he needed to follow his heart, despite the great price he would pay financially and the risk he would be taking with his reputation.

Conclusion: I can only hope Mr. Gingrich will be as direct and unsparing with the Congress, the American people and our allies. If this nation must now move with conviction in the direction of its heart, Newt Gingrich is obviously no stranger to that journey.

One wonders what Mr. Ablow might say about Genghis Khan or Adolf Hitler? The article on Wonkette that pointed out this laughable logic did mention that Keith Ablow had earlier argued that children could catch “transsexual” through their televisions. The mind boggles.

A follow-up comment suggested that Gingrich’s early marriages were not failed marriages but rather they were successful adulteries. Failure is the new success:  it’s all a matter of perspective. Maybe we should have Rick Perry come back after all.
