"The wild cheers that accompanied Newt's counterattack on the media indicated that his growing ranks of fans were ready to overlook his infidelities, and his big win on Saturday in the South Carolina primary proved it. But frustration with the media shouldn't blind us to the candidate's very real weaknesses. Tearing into "despicable" behavior is a classic technique for diverting attention from your own despicable behavior. Remember who else was good at that? Bill Clinton."

-- World Magazine writer Janie Cheaney in a brief essay on why Newt Gingrich shouldn't be the Republican nominee for President. Ms. Cheaney, obviously a Republican based on her past posts on the rightwing Christian website, reflects the feelings of a lot of evangelical voters unhappy with the Speaker's womanizing past no matter how much the Tea Party activists love his rhetoric and rabble-rousing.
