Presumed GOP Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has an interesting explanation for why he had an affair with his current wife - a former congressional aide - while he was still married to his second wife at the same time he was publicly attacking Bill Clinton for having an affair with Monica Lewinsky:  He’s just too patriotic.  The twice-divorced Newt told the Christian Broadcasting Network that back then, “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”. 

- I don’t think it was the country he was feeling so passionately about.  

- If Newt is that patriotic… John Edwards must be George Washington!

- He seems to cast a magical spell over these women… I guess he uses the “Eye of Newt”.
