Echoes

Newt Gingrich was on a right-wing radio yap show the other day, and the news about Bill O'Reilly getting "factored" into some nasty lawsuits concerning a young female producer was the screaming headline, but the conservative talk show host spared the ex-Congressional leader the embarrassment by not mentioning their ideological comrade's precarious situation. Not hard to understand why -- Mr. Gingrich himself was forced out of his job soon after his own illicit affair with a young female aide had become the talk on the DC gossip train. Loudmouth conservative personalities who made didactic and gleeful speeches during the Clinton years now have to endure the terrible echoes of those "Morality in America" speeches they themselves had written and spewed forth in the public forum.
