Stephen Colbert was pretty impressed with Newt Gingrich last night, following revelations of philandering by Gingrich's ex-wife in Esquire
. "His moral compass is so great he can make it point wherever he wants," Colbert said, adding: "Newt is so pro-marriage he can't stop doing it!"
Colbert also described how Newt's ex described the night before he left her, when he gave a big family values speech. According to Colbert, she asked Newt, "and I'm paraphrasing here, 'How do you give that speech and at the same time be such a douchebag p*ssyhound?"
And Newt's reply, according to Colbert? "There's no one else who can say what I can say. It doesn't matter what I live. In short, do as I say not who I do."
