    Again newtie? Thou art a scoundrel and a cad and a lowlife.

    Not true.

    Actually, it’s not true. If Lincoln were alive, he would be a Democrat.

    There was no “deathbed divorce”. Lying doesn’t help your cause, Bennet.

    Does this point out how Bill and Hillary believe that marriage is sacred, vows are not to be broken and that divorce isn’t an option…. bwhahhahhahahhaaa

    Like many stories, some aspects of this lore are true, while others are not.

    Gingrich may not have actually served his first wife with divorce papers on her deathbed, but he did discuss their impending divorce (and argued about it) with Jackie Battley while she was in the hospital recovering from surgery to remove a tumor, is all basically true.

    So, I suppose Newt would be a merely a cad, instead of a DESPICABLE cad.

    The fact aside, this cartoon is only using that lore as an analogy about how Newt seems to be jilting historic Republican philosophy for the more radical brand of Tea Party conservatism. So, I think Bennett’s use of the more dramatic version would fall under artistic license.

    Inane and absurd remark. You are blinded by your partisanship.

    Let me use a tactic of the left……At least he wasn’t caught with an intern under his desk!

    Yet John Edwards and Bill Clinton get passes on cheating on their wives, Edwards did it when his wife was also dying in the hospital.

    Oh, no, he’s definitely a despicable cad. He was a deadbeat dad — his wife and children had to throw themselves on the charity of their church.

    @narrowminded

    READ some of Lincoln’s stands, and you will find, for example, his description of value of labor over capital, which sounds strikingly like Marx! So you’re right that he wouldn’t be a Democrat — Lincoln might be a Socialist. He and Bernie Sanders would be voting together in the Senate…

    @narrowminded: He WAS caught with an intern under his desk and he continued his affair with her while he was married to wife #2 even while he was impeaching Bill Clinton for his escapades. So Newt married his intern. Do you think that makes him less despicable?

    Two more thoughts for you, narrowminded one: How has the Democratic Party behaved towards Mr. Edwards after discovering his affair? HINT: They ain’t considering him for president or even dogcatcher. And last, when Newt lost his position as Speaker of the House, how long did his republican successor last, and why was Larry Flynt (Yes, the pornographer) able to get him fired?

    Both parties switched identities back in the 60’s.
    The party of Lincoln took in the racist Dixiecrats and the
    fair minded Republicans became Democrats.

    Where do those claiming Edward’s was not called on his infidelity get their information. Everyone I knew and read about called him on his actions.
