Remember back when CNN's John King asked Newt Gingrich about his swinger lifestyle and then found himself being gutted like a pig in front of the whole country during a nationally-televised debate? Yeah, I'm sure you might have vague-ish memories of such a thing.
Well, during that exchange, Newt Gingrich made the claim that his campaign offered ABC News multiple sources who could prove that the whole polyamory story was false, but that they refused the exclusive scoop, as news teams are wont to do. A lot of people considered that moment a home run for Gingrich. And it's true; it very likely won him South Carolina.
Though, an equally adroit description of that moment might be total fucking lie…
It takes a big man to outright 100 percent lie directly into a person's face in front of the entire country and then turn around and lie even more so again into another person's face and then eventually kind of have someone in his staff send off a hastily written email acknowledging maybe some facts might have been incorrectly stated.
Newt Gingrich. He certainly is a big man.
