1. Sleazy fat old serial adulterer says what?

Newt is a complete sleaze, both personally and professionally. While he was bloviating about Bill Clinton's escapades with Monica Lewinsky he was having an extramarital affair of his own. He was the guy who shut down the government for more than three weeks because he was miffed about having to use the back door of AF1 (which didn't actually even happen). When he was Speaker he was reprimanded by the House for ethics violations (he claimed tax-exempt status for a college course he ran for political purposes), and had to pay back $300,000 for the cost of the investigation. He notified his first wife he was divorcing her while she was in the hospital being treated for cancer; he then married the woman he was having an affair with - but then he started having another affair with the woman who is his current wife (the new ambassador to the Vatican).

For the last 25 years or so Newt has managed through his own disgraceful behavior to discredit himself to the point where nobody outside the GOP true-believer knuckledragger base can take him seriously. Birds of a repulsive feather, I guess.
