The Right Word: The GOP panic attack



All is not well in conservative talk radio land: Rush Limbaugh and friends can’t see a Republican who could beat Obama in 2012


Michael Savage is also not impressed with any of the GOP line up, but he is particularly disgusted by former house speaker Newt Gingrich (listen to clip).

“Newt Gingrich, to me, makes my flesh crawl. He actually sickens me whenever I see him. He is everything that is wrong with the Republican party – but wait, it got worse today. Newt Gingrich said this: he said he’s a contender for the 2012 Republican nomination, and then he spoke about his extramarital affairs – and listen to what he said. He said, ‘my love of America made me love a lot of other things.’ So, in other words, he’s using patriotism to say that inspired his adultery.

“Now, the fact of the matter is if Newt Gingrich were to write his new autobiography, he ought to call it the Audacity of Grope!”

Savage is referring to a recent interview Gingrich gave to the Christian Broadcast Network, in which he tried to explain why he cheated on his first wife, who had cancer, with his second wife, whom he subsequently cheated on when she got multiple sclerosis, and left her for his third and current wife, to whom he is still married. Gingrich admitted that while he was “doing things that were wrong”, his behaviour toward his wives was “partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country”.

I didn’t know adultery was one of the things you could do for your country, Newt, by the way – and Gingrich also says he was unfaithful and abandoned both of his dying wives because of his passion for America.
