It galls me that the Republicans, who have insisted on making so-called "family values" a campaign issue for the last 20 years, are lining up to support a man who has cheated on at least two wives and left them when they were ill, while blasting President Obama as being anti-faith and anti-family.

Last time I checked, Obama has been married to the same woman for many years, in what appears to be a happy marriage. There has never been a serious hint of scandal, and they have two wonderful, reasonably well-adjusted daughters who love them.

Who is the "family values" candidate here?

I'm also annoyed that Gingrich attacked "the media" for being sleazy because he has been questioned about his ex-wife's interview.

Just a damn minute. Now, I personally have nothing against people who choose an open marriage. But if you repeatedly present yourself as a social conservative, "family values" guy, and actively take part in the culture war, then your past extra-marital affairs and accusations from your ex that you asked for an open marriage become legitimate targets. It goes to consistency and whether or not you are a hypocrite.
