Skip to comments.Mrs. Gingrich Vents, Bettors Yawn

The Internet and TV news are all atwitter, if you'll pardon the pun, about Newt Gingrich's second wife, Marianne, telling ABC that Newt asked her for an "open marriage" so he could keep sleeping with Callista Bisek -- now Gingrich's third wife -- with Marianne's blessing.
While "values voters" will not be pleased with Gingrich's version of marital fidelity, betting odds show precisely zero negative reaction to the news. Instead, the news that Mitt Romney may not have won Iowa along with Rick Perry's dropping out of the race are beginning to solidify Newt's possible position as The Non-Romney. Romney's botched handling of demands to see his tax returns are also damaging the view of his inevitability, at least in South Carolina.
In less than 48 hours, based on betting at intrade.com, Gingrich's odds of winning Saturday's South Carolina primary have exploded from about 15 percent to 40 percent while Romney's odds have sagged from 85 percent to 60 percent. Rick "Hey, I won Iowa!" Santorum is trading under 1 percent to win the Palmetto State.
Bettors are not placing too much weight on South Carolina as a barometer for the whole nominating enchilada, with Gingrich's odds going from about 5 percent to 10 percent, but with Romney remaining a prohibitive 84 percent favorite, down from about 91 percent.

So what’s her story? Anything in her past that would make people question her credibility?
“Anything in her past that would make people question her credibility?”
Oh, I don’t know.
Maybe the fact that she was sleeping with a married man with children,for a number of years, when she met Newt?
Could possibly be a problem?!
NO, Mrs. Gingrich,with a litle age and wisdom, we just don’t care! Most of us realize that there’s not much difference between Men and Livestock! We’ve seen it time after time and the longer you continue to carry on about it the more tiresome it becomes and the more pathetic you look. Deal with it or hush....
...but...but....Clinton preserved the sanctity of his marriage! /s
