Family Values

Newt Gingrich, Bob Livingston and Dennis Hastert.

What do they have in common?

All three were Republican congressmen. 

All three were Speaker of the House or the designated speaker.

All three left Congress to trade on their public service to become very wealthy consultants and lobbyists.

All three preached high moral standards, the sanctity of marriage and family values.

They led the campaign to impeach President Bill Clinton, who offended their high moral values by having oral sex with a White House intern.

All three are adulterers. Two of the three admitted cheating on their wives with other women and the third is a confessed sex molester with young boys.

Now the frontrunner for the Republican presidential election is a misogynistic  

serial adulterer who boasts about his conquests and has accused his leading opponent of also committing adultery with several women.

That's the party of family values?
