The Family Values Crowd

From Bill Maher last night, a discussion about marriage.

Newt Gingrich on his third, McCain on his second and Giuliani on his third, and the only guy who practices monogamy, Mormon Mitt Romney. Now that's irony from the family values crowd.

Newt admits this week to an extramarital affair while trying to fry Bill Clinton for the same thing, now Falwell rewards him with commencement speaker at his uber conservative Liberty University.

I also remember the affair Giuliani had that was the front page of the paper every day while he was Mayor of NYC. Forbes remembers more: "Judith Nathan was the other woman back then and subsequently became Giuliani's third wife and stepmother to the two Giuliani-Hanover children, Andrew and Christine. Giuliani's first marriage to his second cousin, Regina Peruggi, ended after 14 years in divorce and later an annulment."

Now the Democrats. Hilary married once, still married. Edwards married once, still married. Barak Obama married once, still married.

So I ask again, who has the family values? Who defends the sanctity of marriage?
