CNN Went There But The Others Didn't

January 19, 2012

A stunning opening to the debate as John King goes there, all the way.

Newt went with full attack, as I said he must have wanted to do. He questioned ABC's legitimacy, denied the veracity of his ex-wife's claim that he wanted an open marriage, claimed that ABC wouldn't interview persons with a conflicting account. He went as far as to say that the media was working for Barack Obama. The "destructive, vicious, negative nature of the media," he said.

 If the former speaker's outburst wasn't surprising, the unwillingness of any of his opponents to jump in was less obvious. Ron Paul dissed the media but slyly noted his marriage of 54 years. Santorum said he was glad God believed in forgiveness.

Gingrich's remarks played well in the hall. Will they with GOP voters in South Carolina? It's hard to know. And it depends what else his second wife might or might not say in the coming days. But one voice that won't be heard is Callista. The other woman can't be a character witness.
