  1. Gingrich – a serial adulterer who has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines for ethics violations. If he was to get the nomination, he would be ripped to pieces. He is only a front runner because Romney is a mormon, which leaves a bad taste in the mouths of the evangelical wingnuts who underpin the GOP. I’m taking this interview as a warning to him from his sister, I’m sure that she knows a few details that he wouldn’t want leaking and she knows that he is fundamentally unsound and unsuitable to be POTUS.

  2. ” Candace Gingrich-Jones, well known as a gay rights activist, told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that she and her half-brother have a “mutually respectful” relationship ”

    But it’s quite clear that Newt Gingrich has no respect for his sister. How is is possible to respect someone you believe is a 2nd class citizen, undeserving of the same rights as yourself.

    Newt Pigrich has been married several times.

    He has repeatedly undermined the institution of marriage.

    1. And he recently converted to the roman cult, no surprise that he’s such a bigot. A serial adulterer, three times married and the roman cult accepts him into their fold with open arms. Oh the hypocrisy of it all! He’s also run up a $500,000 bill at Tiffany’s that he hasn’t paid. Those right wingers are so ethical aren’t they? You won’t hear anything from the religious hate groups if Gingrich is nominated, such as the National Organisation for Marriage, Family Research Council and their ilk.

      1. He’s a catholic?

        Typical – that sickening cult will accept serial divorces so long as they pay.

  3. By the way it’s becoming very clear that the Repugnic*** Party is deliberately trying to lose this election. Gingrich (serial adulterer and fornicator); or Bachman (certifiably insane and married to a closet gay); Santorum (frothy mix of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex); Perry and Romney – a mor(m)on – clearly have no chance of getting elected.

    The economy will continue to suffer over the next 4 years so I think the Repugnic***s want Obama to stay in power to deal with the mess,

    in the meantime the Repugnic***s will continue to try to hamper economic recovery so they can blame it on Obama in the 2016 elections.

    The standard of living for ordinary Americans is almost irrelevant to either political party. So long as their corporate masters are happy, the rest of the country can swing for all they care.

    There’s a lot of foaming at the mouth here. Can’t we just say that Gingrich has an antediluvian nature to matters sexual and is a gross hypocrite given his own marital past?

  5. Really? My one-eyed, red-headed second cousin twice removed doesn’t agree with my politics either.

  6. Poor woman – imagine being related to this bigoted sleazy individual.

  7. well, if nothing else, i now understand an obscure RENT lyric

    A weasel in the woodpile has more ethics than this sorry excuse for a politician. The man is a CAPITAL L Loser. I cannot imagine even the zany Republican Party nominating him. Then again I could since their choices are so limited as far as integrity is concerned.

    Candace obviously inherited the intelligent and rational part of that gene pool she has the misfortune by birth of sharing. A perfect example of how we don’t get to pick our blood families.

  10. Now there is a sensible woman!

  11. You can’t choose your relatives! but, you can choose your friends!
    “Good thing life gives us options and alternatives!”

  12. Never mind his homophobia and hypocrosy; Gingrich’s support for the Israeli occupation, with encouragement of his evangelical political base, would fan the flames of sectarianism; his presidency would be a gift to al Qaeda. The main concern will be bloodshed across the Middle East, if not Europe too. He will be a total disaster for world peace.

  13. Does this guy have delusions of grandure?

    Isn’t that a sign of mental illness?
