NYT: Gingrich Had An Affair While Married!

We are not particular fans of Newt Gingrich. But his treatment from the New York Times is simply laughable. First, on their front page above the fold, we find this photo and tease:

Gingrich Set to Run, With Wife in Key Role

Newt Gingrich and his wife, Callista, began dating while he was still married, but associates now believe she could be helpful in a presidential campaign.

And here is the beginning of their ‘news article’:

New Gingrich and his wife, Callista, at a movie screening last month. The two began dating while Mr. Gingrich was married.

Gingrich Set to Run, With Wife in Central Role

WASHINGTON — Callista Bisek’s friends from rural Wisconsin were stunned when, well over a decade ago, she confided that she was secretly dating an older, married man: Newt Gingrich.

Still in her 20s when they met, Ms. Bisek had been raised in a town of 1,500, the only child of a meat packer and a secretary. A churchgoing Roman Catholic, she had attended a Lutheran college where she practiced piano five hours a day. “Is this the wisest course for you to be taking?” Karen Olson, her best friend, recalled asking.

Today, Ms. Bisek is Mrs. Gingrich, married for 11 years, but perhaps best remembered for the six-year affair that contributed to her husband’s political downfall. His critics cast Mr. Gingrich, the former House speaker, as a hypocrite who sought to impeach a president over infidelity while engaging in it himself with Ms. Bisek, who was a Congressional aide

Yet in a curious tale of Washington reinvention, the onetime congressman from Georgia is counting on the third Mrs. Gingrich for his political redemption.

As he prepares for a Republican presidential primary run — he said Monday that he would formally declare his intentions on Wednesday — Mr. Gingrich is presenting himself as a family man who has embraced Catholicism and found God, with his wife as a kind of character witness

The New York Times is about as subtle as a sledgehammer.

Of course, if Mr. Gingrich was a married Democrat who had a homosexual affair, The Times would be celebrating his courage.

    Newt is such a sex maniac that the country would be at risk of him getting blow jobs in the White House or something totally over the top like that.

    I think his real problem is that he doesn’t act gay enough to please the make believe media.

    And just look at that brazen hussy he’s married to now. I’ll bet Thunderbutt’s left thigh outweighs that twiggy.

    There otta be a law against the Republicans getting all the good looking women.

      It’s the liberal thoughts that rot them from the inside out until they all look like Helen Thomas.

      We must have different ideas about what constitues “attractive”, pro. Maybe that’s a bad picture but me, I’m old fashioned and I like woman who don’t look like they were produced by the Mattel Toy Company. That doesn’t mean I like them looking like Rosie O’Donnell either…I’m sure she’s a very nice woman and she has lots of fabulous outfits and accessories and shoes and Newt can spend hours dressing her up…hmmm. Better leave it at that.

      Beauty is only skin deep….but ugly goes right to the bone.
