Dumbass Quote of the Day

"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. And what I can tell you is that when I did things that were wrong, I wasn't trapped in situation ethics, I was doing things that were wrong, and yet, I was doing them."

~Newt Gingrich explaining his adultery.
Yes, Gingrich loved his country sooooo much, that he cheated on his former high school geometry teacher and first wife, Jackie Battley with Marianne Ginther (his future second wife) and divorced Battley while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery, and then cheated on Ginther with House staffer and future third wife, Callista Bisek, all the while jonesing to impeach Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with Monica Lewinsky at the same time Newt was playing Hide the Gavel with Bisek.

That's some special kind of patriotism, huh?
