"Pharisaic." I don't think I've ever encountered that word before, but I can't think of one more accurate to describe Newt. (A name that is a disservice to slimy bottom-feeders everywhere, I might add.)

On Facebook, someone responded to Jon Stewart's reaction to Newt's debate performance (http://2012.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/01/jon-stewart-loses-his-marbles-over-newts-hypocrisy.php?ref=fpnewsfeed) ("You're a Washington outsider? You are THE Washington insider! When Washington gets its prostate checked, it tickles you!") by stating that "Obama's just as big a hypocrite as [Gingrich], and they all are, on both sides." I asked him to please provide a citation or example of hypocrisy on the part of Obama equal to Gingrich's: marshalling Congress to impeach Clinton over an affair with a younger woman, while Gingrich was doing exactly the same thing. And, might I add, allegedly demanded "permission" for an "open marriage" from his wife at the time, after six years of said affair, and by "open marriage" he meant "I can screw around and you can't hold it against me in divorce court," because dollars to donuts he would have flipped his shit if she'd said "Open marriage? Sure, I'll go bang the pool boy now."
