The cultural relativists are outraged that Newt Gingrich gets a free pass for having an affair while Bill Clinton was impeached. But, Bill Clinton was impeached not because he had the affair, but because he lied about it.
So the only difference between Newt Gingrich and Bill Clinton is that Newt came forward about his affair and asked for forgiveness. He got his forgiveness from Jerry Falwell and James Dobson.
As much as we would like to claim hipocrisy on Gingrich who supported a family values agenda as a political candidate while pointing at Clinton and carrying on affairs, we have to remember that the whole issue is about lying, confession, and forgiveness.
So have all the affairs you want as long as you have the guts to occasionally confess and ask for forgiveness from people you think might make you feel better for having asked their forgiveness.
It shouldn't be difficult for President Bush to ask for forgiveness for lying about weapons of mass destruction and Yellow Cake Uranium sought by Saddam Hussein in Nigeria. I'm sure that Fallwell and Dobson will gladly initiate a nice group hug with Bremmer, Wolfowitz, Cheny, Rumsfeld, Rove, and President Bush.
