In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Newt Gingrich stated that his passion for America drove him to his past adultery: "There's no question at times of my life, partially driven by how passionately I felt about this country, that I worked far too hard and that things happened in my life that were not appropriate.”
Does the nation appreciate Gingrich’s passion for America, which led to his passion for women outside the bonds of matrimony? Steven Colbert tells us why we should:
Colbert: Newt knows that before he can throw his giant hat in the ring, he has to explain his past positions. Specifically, why those positions were so often on top of women who weren't his wife... With this patriotic defense of his inappropriate behavior, Newt’s just saying that all he ever really wanted to do was screw America. And if we elect him president, he will keep that promise.
