Gingrich’s Latest Argument

From David Brody:

In a one-on-one interview with The Brody File, Newt Gingrich says that he has “not hidden from the facts of my life, that I have confessed my weaknesses” and he believes that, in part is a reason why evangelicals are able to get behind his candidacy. He goes on to say that, “it may make me more normal than somebody who wanders around seeming perfect and maybe not understanding the human condition, and the challenges of life for normal people.” (Dig at Romney???)

Right. Challenges normal people face, like being married to a woman who “can’t run uphill.”
