Listening to Newt Gingrich call Joesph Wilson a liar on The TODAY Show illustrates the depths at which the GOP has fallen in the Plame leak investigation. A man who was sanctioned for ethics violations, dodged military service, and made his first wife sign divorce papers while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery is the go-to guy to defend Karl Rove. (Where's Mary Carey?) Then he had the nerve to hammer Clinton over the Lewinksy matter while having an extramarital sexual affair with Callista Bisek. Newt's defense in all of his past behavior is 'I'm a sinner." (Andrew, that is really funny and should be your quote of the day ) Gingrich sure is the man to talk about lying on national television. They finally found a true pundit on the subject. AmericaBlog has a little more.
