Beyond the ludicrous flip-flop on Libya, the ham-fisted attacks on the president, and the frantic, anti-Muslim ravings and assorted crazy-talk, if you want to know why Newt Gingrich will never, ever be president of the United States, just watch this interview, on Fox, no less.
There’s an old saying that if a man’s wife can’t trust him, neither can the country. Given the history of successful but caddish American presidents, from Jefferson to William Jefferson Clinton, that saying might not be quite true. But what can you say about a guy whose mistress-turned-wife can’t trust him, either? I think that’s where the “can’t be president” untrustworthiness factor really kicks in.
