Holier than thou

Serial adulterer Newt Gingrich, who blasted Notre Dame for asking President Obama to give the commencement speech last year, will himself speak there.

Bonus: Newt's wife will join him at the university to present a film about Pope John Paul II.

Yeah, that's his THIRD wife.

"It doesn't matter what I do," he answered. "People need to hear what I have to say. There's no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn't matter what I live."

"He could have been president. But when you try and change your history too much, and try and recolor it because you don't like the way it was or you want it to be different to prove something new ... you lose touch with who you really are. You lose your way."

"He believes that what he says in public and how he lives don't have to be connected," she says. "If you believe that, then yeah, you can run for president."
--Marianne Gingrich, 2nd wife, I believe; before the Newt converted to Catholicism, what?
so he could marry his 3rd wife:
"I'm Henery the 8th I am: Henery the 8th I am I am, I am....
--Herman's Hermits

"He's a sociopath, but he's our sociopath."
--Newt Gingrich's staff [then; would have to be now....]

I always think back to one of the few INTERESTING things I learned in a college Ethics course (it was surprisingly dry - - a lot of looking back at Kant, Hume, etc), which was the definition of the phrase 'ethical belief' as being "thought PLUS action". So you can SAY you 'believe' that "X should happen" but when you're presented with the circumstances and you freely do 'Y', the opposite, then you can't HONESTLY say you believe in "X". It's the idea that the word 'belief' entails MORE than just SAYING words - - if that was enough, than every narrator, actor or actress could be said to BELIEVE in what they were saying when they're just reading lines. Every barroom braggart and all the high-times-talk would mean something important, instead of just a sign of insecurity or fantasy. Every con-man and sociopath has very believable words, but can you classify their mere statements as 'beliefs'? NO - - There has to be some means beyond mere words of truth-testing a belief, and the primary, most reliable way is through a person's actions. If a person's free actions conflict with their stated belief, than we will usually say that their true belief is being expressed by their actions, and that there words are lies/misrepresentations of their true beliefs.

Imagine pulling a few teeth from the rotting corpse of political discourse, putting them under your pillow; and that, during the night, the Love-of-Knowledge Faerie came.

In the morning you find the random canines arranged in gold bridgework, ah, beautiful: Something To Chew With.

Thank you, Big Em.
