• Newt Gingrich Asked His Second Wife for an Open Marriage

    Conservatives can tolerate divorce, cheating and hypocrisy. We're about to find out if they draw the line at swinging. Newt Gingrich's ex-wife┬áMarianne Gingrich will appear on Nightline tonight with claims that Newt asked her for an open marriage…

    In her most provocative comments, the ex-Mrs. Gingrich said Newt sought an "open marriage" arrangement so he could have a mistress and a wife.

    She said when Gingrich admitted to a six-year affair with a Congressional aide, he asked her if she would share him with the other woman, Callista, who is now married to Gingrich.

    "And I just stared at him and he said, 'Callista doesn't care what I do,'" Marianne Gingrich told ABC News. "He wanted an open marriage, and I refused."

    This is all in the past. After all, Newt Gingrich signed The Family Leader pledge. And that's a much stronger commitment than a wedding vow.

    Once again, thank you, universe, for making us think about the sex life of a person we didn't remotely want to picture naked. I guess Herman Cain wasn't punishment enough.
