Conservatives Pick The Worst Role Models
While it was widely rumored that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had several extramarital affairs which led to not only one but two messy divorces he always refused to talk about it.
Gingrich admitted to Focus on the Family founder James Dobson in an interview to be aired on Friday that "the answer is yes" he had committed infidelity, while pursuing charges against former President Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
Gingrich claimed that he was not a hypocrite to lead a crusade against Bill Clinton, even though he too was committing adultery.
"There are times that I have fallen short of my own standards. There's certainly times when I've fallen short of God's standards." Gingrich stated.
Newt Gingrich is very popular among the Conservative base even though he fails to uphold even his own image of a "good Conservative".
Gingrich is considering an '08 White House run. Wish him luck, he'll need it, lots of it.
