"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."
That's how Newt Gingrich explained his extramarital affair with current wife Callista (then a House staffer) while Newt was Speaker to CBN's David Brody yesterday.
Some things just leave me almost speechless. I said almost, otherwise I wouldn't be blogging about this.
Saying "I'm so patriotic I cheated on my wife" just doesn't sit well with me...
On a side note, the above picture is taken from Gingrich's new exploratory committee website. Do you find it to look as creepy as I do?
