When the hypocrites, come marching in... (Newt Gingrich admits he has sinned!)

@ 10:17 PM (96 months, 1 day ago)

Well color me surprised here!  Newt Gingrich hasn't exactly been a model husband himself.  Who knew?! 

Newt Gingrich has admitted to Focus on the Family's wingnut James Dobson, that he was carrying on his own extramarital affair, during the very same time that he was sitting in judgement of President Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinsky.

Sounds to me as though Newt is going to run for President in '08, and he's coming before those so-called GOP "values voters" (many of whom really don't have many values at all) to tell them he has sinned and ask for their forgiveness.

Next week, Valerie Plame, who is of course the former CIA covert operative whose identity was exposed by the Bush Administration, will testify before the House Oversight And Government Reform Committee. The committee, chaired by Rep. Henry Waxman, will be examining how the lawless Bush Administration handled Plame's identity.

Patrick Fitzgerald,  who successfuly prosecuited and one convictions against Scooter Libby for his role in Plame outing, has also been invited to testify, but he has not provided an answer to the committee yet.
