So Newt Gingrich didn't ask for an "open marriage"?
Seems not. (I don't watch ABC so I'll have to take James Taranto's word for it.)
What's all the kerfuffle and hair-pulling about then?
Hmm. I'm guessing it has more to do with the fact that he is surging in the political polls than with the perception that his then-wife gleaned from a conversation she had with him many years ago.
If I were his enemies, I think I'd be pulling my hair out too.
