Unfortunately, there's more where this came from, but here are excerpts from the most obnoxious, twisted rationalization imaginable by someone who calls himself a psychiatrist. Apparently, he took the Hypocritical Oath by mistake.
Then again, Dr. Keith Ablow is a Fox contributor, and that operation is in desperate need of psychiatric help.
I want to tell you what Mr. Gingrich’s behavior could mean for the country, not for the future of his current marriage. So, here’s what one interested in making America stronger can reasonably conclude—psychologically—from Mr. Gingrich’s behavior during his three marriages:
1) Three women have met Mr. Gingrich and been so moved by his emotional energy and intellect that they decided they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with him.
2) Two of these women felt this way even though Mr. Gingrich was already married.
3 ) One of them felt this way even though Mr. Gingrich was already married for the second time, was not exactly her equal in the looks department and had a wife (Marianne) who wanted to make his life without her as painful as possible.
Conclusion: When three women want to sign on for life with a man who is now running for president, I worry more about whether we’ll be clamoring for a third Gingrich term, not whether we’ll want to let him go after one.
Three women were unfathomably devoted to a slimy philanderer, including two who were "the other woman" themselves, and Ablow sees their disturbing dependence and self-destructive behavior as a good thing.
Yeah, that analysis makes sense. Newton Leroy is just the guy who can strengthen this country, because the remedy for all of America's ills is a pig man who can't stay zipped, has a nasty, condescending demeanor, is completely untrustworthy, treats women like objects, is an insensitive lout, and don't even get me started on his political views or why any woman in her right mind would want to get intimate with such a bloated, self-serving, egotistical grease ball.
But this is who Ablow thinks deserves our respect, admiration, and votes.
Painful, isn't it? Methinks the shrink needs a shrink.
