From Thursday evening's The Colbert Report:

Keith Ablow finds Newt Gingrich irresistible even if the Republican establishment doesn't.

More on Keith Ablow's hackery from last week here.

And TPM has more on the segment above -- Colbert: Gingrich Clearly A ‘Seductive’ Man:

“Gingrich is so seductive that three women, two of whom knew he was an adulterer, were willing to pick Newt,” Colbert said Thursday. So Ablow is saying we should look past his weaknesses to his strengths, which are his weaknesses.”

Ablow goes on to write that Gingrich showed real strength when he explained to his wives that he had fallen in love with another woman and “needed to follow his heart, despite the great price he would pay financially and the risk he would be taking with his reputation.”

“Yes, he had to follow his heart,” Colbert said. “Or whatever was throbbing so loudly.”
