Don't feel too bad for these guys. Jerry Falwell forgives them for their infidelity/ies - or at least Gingrich's:
Falwell, in his newsletter, said he has usually been able to tell when a man who has experienced "moral collapse" was genuinely seeking forgiveness. "My sense tells me that Mr. Gingrich is such a man," he wrote.
"I well remember the challenge we evangelicals faced in 1980 when our candidate, Ronald Reagan, was the first presidential candidate who had gone through a divorce. We wisely made allowance for God's forgiveness and America was the beneficiary of this historic champion," Falwell added.
What? I guess Falwell forgot all about Reagan's involvement in the Iran Contra Affair and Oliver North's conviction on three felony counts for lying under oath.
Falwell's memory loss and double standard aside, Howard Kurtz of the WaPo explains the right-wingers thinking this way:
"Right, it wasn't about the sex, it was about the perjury. Whereas Gingrich's affair was only about the sex."
