callista bisek should hope she never gets sick

i usually don't judge politicians for what they do in their personal life. that's because i don't think what they do in private is relevant to whether they will make the right decisions in office. but i have a hard time not thinking that newt gingrich is a repulsive human being for how he has treated his former wives.

he divorced wife #1 while she was in the hospital recovering from surgery to remove her uterine cancer. he divorced wife #2 just after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. it's easy to assume that male politicians who keep trading in their wives for younger women are misogynist. but newt also seems to have issues with people who are fighting serious illnesses.
