Newt Gingrich’s second wife, Marianne, says the GOP presidential candidate asked her for an “open marriage” after he became involved with the woman who became his third and current wife.
Marianne Gingrich told ABC News that Gingrich wanted the then-Callista Bisek, his current wife, as his mistress while keeping Marianne Gingrich as his wife. She said he admitted at the time to a six-year affair with Callista.
Gingrich angrily shot back at CNN moderator John King for daring to ask him about the affair during last night’s debate:
“Would you like to take some time to respond to that?” asked King.
“No, but I will,” said a visibly angered Gingrich, earning sustained applause.
“The destructive, vicious, negative nature of much of the news media makes it harder to govern this country, harder to attract decent people to run for public office, and I am appalled that you would begin a presidential debate on a topic like that,” he said.
Oh, the contrived outrage. Seriously, what kind of question did you expect after claiming to value the sanctity of marriage? What marriage are you on? Three? Who are you schtupping now? I’m sure it isn’t your wife since you’re married to her and all.
I’ll be honest: Whether the “open marriage” story is true or not is irrelevant. Your marriage history is well known. I honestly don’t care who you screw, or where, or when, or how often. If you want a harem of scantily clad 21 year old Swedish ladies – or men – or both – to cater to your every whim, feed you grapes, and fan you with fronds fashioned out of hundred dollar bills, fine. I don’t give a shit. Just don’t involve anyone I care about, don’t involve anyone who can’t give legal consent, and for Chrissakes, DON’T SAY ANYTHING MORE ABOUT THE SANCTITY OF MARRIAGE. Just shut the hell up and keep your hypocrisy to yourself. You’re a disgrace to the institution and your behavior has completely destroyed what little credibility you ever had.

Oh, sorry. I forgot. You’re a Republican. All is forgiven.
