Gingrich’s devil: patriotism

On one level, this is comedy gold – blaming excessive patriotism for extramarital affairs – but it’s also an interesting example of an almost completely ethos-based argument that appeals to fellow sinners.

By the way, I can’t help but enjoy the  parallel between secular-atheist-elitism and radical Islam at the end. I would wonder if he’d be allowed in public if Palin hadn’t opened the door for this kind of bizarre logical structure from presidential aspirants, but I’m well past being surprised.
