“Democratic sex scandals have been far worse.”
That’s a quote from Newt Gingrich. Jeez, what a hacky thing to say. That line is dizzy with spin.
Also, there’s this odd bit of logic that has I’ve never heard suggested, but I can bet you that if people DID want to wiretape Foley, they’d have gone through the right channels instead of just doing it illegally.
“It’s pretty hard to understand. The very people who say you shouldn’t be wiretapping for terrorists apparently think you should wiretap a congressman. I don’t understand the double standard,” Gingrich said.
Anything to keep the GOP in power, eh Newt?
PoliBlog points out something that I forgot…
It is just me, but didnÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t Gingrich give up the right to talk about the hypocrisy of others on matter of sexual behavior after leading the charge to impeach Clinton over the Lewinsky affair while he himself was having an affair with a younger staffer?
Well, he certainly didn’t give up the right, but he has zero credibility on matters like these.
In other words…pot, meet kettle.
