Newt, At Long Last, Has Found God…

gingrich-newt[1]Dana Milbank tells us that as Newt eyes a presidential bid, he is talking more about God.  For the longest time, Newt avoided any “up-front” comments about God and his faith – because, well, there was always some joker who’d insist upon reminding Newt about his serving his first wife with divorce papers when she was recovering form cancer surgery.  Or, other jackasses, would remind Newt that he was carrying on a sorrid affair with a staffer, whom would eventually become his third wife, while he was chasing down Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinski.

Maybe the Republican party has changed so much and embraced so many religious candidates (think Huckabee, Palin, et al.) that he can’t really avoid the subject.  It is hard for me to see how blatant hypocrisy can help any political candidate, but go for it, Newt!

Newt is trotting out a robust offensive against the evil Secular America.  Has the public forgotten, can Newt get away with it?  We will see…

180px-Sketch_of_Tun_Tavern_in_the_Revolutionary_WarTun Tavern, in Philadelphia, is regarded as the location of the first Marines to enlist under Comandant Samuel Nicholas. When the Revolutionary War ended in 1783, the Continental Navy was disestablished, and with it, the Continental Marines. The Corps was re-established on 11 July 1798, when the “act for establishing and organizing a Marine Corps” was signed by President John Adams.
