Whoa ho-holy sh*t: how’s this for “family values”? Please let me hear Tony Perkins and the rest of the moralists clean up behind this:

ABC Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross told WMAL’s Morning Majority program that Marianne Gingrich claims her ex-husband wanted an ‘open marriage.’

“He came to her and said, ‘I want to stay married to you and still have an affair with Calista [sic], his current wife,” said Ross. “According to Marianne, he said ‘You need to share me,’ and she said ‘I don’t want to share,’ and the marriage ended,” he added.

“I think we start by knowing that what an ex-wife has to say we all take with a grain of salt, I hope, because that’s what ex-wives can be known for,” says Ross. “But I think the most dramatic thing from the point of view of people looking at Gingrich  in his campaign about character and that he’s asked for God’s forgiveness and that he believes in the sanctity of marriage is her allegation that what Gingrich wanted from her was an open marriage,” he says.

First off, any visualization of boinking Newt churns the gut, but to move on… I wonder what Callista thinks about this? And Newt wants to ensure gays and lesbians don’t have access to civil marriage. The hypocrisy meter just shattered.

The entertainment in the Clown Car never ends.
