Boinking For Your Country
Warning: It's time to put on your waders.
In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Newt Gingrich says that his love for his country made him do it. "It" being his love affair with a congressional aide while married to his second wife. Apparently, Newt just worked too hard. You can say that again. Thank you, I will. Newt says he "worked far too hard."
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.
Not to worry. It's all good. He divorced the wife, married the aide, and he's asked God for forgiveness:
I found that I felt compelled to seek God's forgiveness. Not God's understanding, but God's forgiveness.
To quote one of my favorite comedians, Steven Wright:
Is it weird in here, or is it just me?
