Newt Gingrich’s Wife a Whore Says Religious Reich Leader James Dobson

With the American Religious Reich cuddling up to gay-hating, woman-hating, sodomy-obsessed Catholic fascist Rick Santorum, comes the inexorable fundi demonisation of potetional GOP presidential contenders.

We already know that the GOP’s Dominionist wing wants to re-criminalize homosexuality and control the wombs of every woman in America, but we can now officially say that slut-shaming is part of the evangelical belief system political calculus as well.

James Dobson, the decrepit founder of Focus on the Anus Family was one of the fundie luminaries invited to a Texas ranch with 15o other fundie “big thinkers” (I use that term very loosely) to figure out who they were going to back as the anti-Romney. They settled on Santorum as their man, but the real news is what Dobson said in ruling out Newt “serial adulterer” Gingrich. (The Politico):

“Dobson first talked about how great Santorum is,” recalled one source, who had first-hand knowledge of Dobson’s comment. “(He said) ‘I want to tell you that I’ve gotten to know Karen (Santorum) and she is just lovely. She set aside two professional careers to raise these seven children. She would make a fabulous first lady role model. And Newt Gingrich’s wife, she was a mistress for 8 years.”

Another source confirmed the account, and said Dobson concluded the sentiment about Callista Gingrich with, “Who do you want as your first lady?

“It was like a chill (set into) the room,” said one source.

The last time I checked, it takes two to tango, and Gingrich’s “Little Newt” was slutting around with Calista before she joined him in holy matrimony. How come that bit of business doesn’t come under fire in the House of Dobson?

The GOP is completely out-of-control when it comes to misogyny in this election cycle. It’s so bad that I don’t expect Newt — who is pandering to the hard right with every ounce of his being — will even bother to publicly defend his wife on this front.

    Well, as it turns out Karen did some slutting around of her own before marrying Rick. She lived with an OB-GYN a family friend, who was forty years her senior, provided abortions, and in fact had delivered her. She was in her 20′s & lived with him (yep, sans marriage) for 6 years. . .and these are my choices for a potential first lady. Ahem, I think vote to keep the lovely lady who occupies that position now, thanks.
