In a rambling video promoting North Carolina's proposed constitutional amendment to ban any benefits to unmarried couples, GOP presidential wannabee urges voters to support the anti-gay measure. Notice how Gingrich swings right through the idea that all people are equal to charge right into an argument that gay and lesbian couples shouldn't be equal to their straight counterparts.

Gingrich has been married three times. His ex-wife claims he asked her for an open marriage so he could continue having sex with his mistress (now his 3rd wife). Gingrich left his first wife while she was battling cancer to take up with the second.

As with all of these folks clamoring to police gay couples' bedrooms and marriages, Gingrich claims he supports "small government." That's government so small it can peep in the keyhole, folks.
