WWJD?

Latest little woman appalled at hubby's newfound piety presidental aspirations: "Shit, now I'm stuck with him for at least the next three years."

A Church-of-What's-Happening-Now member at birth, a Rastafarian during college, and a Baptist since graduate school, Newt Gingrich said he will soon convert to Catholicism, his current wife’s faith.

At a moment when the role of religious fundamentalism in the party is a central question for reformers, Gingrich, rather than making any kind of case for a new enlightenment, has in fact gone to great lengths to placate Christian conservatives. The family-values crowd has never completely embraced Newt, probably because not only is he an asshole, he has been married three times.

The 'family values' of a bonobo.
