Doonesbury by Garry Trudeau for December 01, 1994
Mrs. Gingrich: Divorce? But I...I have cancer... Bomb/Gingrich: Press hard. You're making two copies. Mark: From there, caller, it was all downhill! Newt figured that $100 a week should be sufficient support for his former family...His sick wife and two daughters became so destitute, their Pastor had to ask their fellow church members for assistance. Caller: Man! I can't imagine a scene that pitiful! Pastor: Let us now pray for the Gingrich children... Bomb/Gingrich: I shoulda just put 'em in an orphanage! Newt picks his moment. Imagining a scene that pitiful.
