Newt is a good nickname for a guy who acts like a slimy misogynist.
Announcing his run for president will bring a spotlight to his behavior with the ladies, so here is a quick rundown on Mr. Gingrich's three wives and dates they were married to The Newt...
Newt's High School Geometry teacher, he started dating her when he was 16, then infamously divorced her while she was battling cancer. Words cannot describe how wrong that was.
He cheated on her and then dumped her right after she found out she had multiple sclerosis. I sense a pattern here.

She was a House Staffer and is 23 years younger than Newt. Let's hope for her sake she stays healthy.
I have a sense that Mr. Gingrich does not really like women all that much, given his history of not treating them very well. He has attempted to address the issue by stating: "There's no question at times in my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked too hard and things happened in my life that were not appropriate."
I'm not sure that it was passion for his country that was driving Mr. Gingrich, but let's leave it at that.
His mother has some insight into his feelings about women, as posted in EZ Kool's excellent blog:
Mr. Gingrich also seems to think that he does not have to practice what he preaches. In a conversation with his second wife, who asked him how he can talk about family values but not actually seem to have value for his families, he stated:
“It doesn’t matter what I do,” he answered. “People need to hear what I have to say. There’s no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn’t matter what I live.”
Mr. Gingrich, I disagree, and I have a feeling that many voters feel the same way. Good luck with your campaign...
