Newt Gingrich and Amendment One

Joe Guarino and I seldom agree in our political wishes, but in at least one case, we couldn't agree more.

Commenting on a visit to Greensboro by Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Joe opined
It would certainly help the cause of the marriage amendment if he spends a lot of time here. More Gingrich visits to the Piedmont Triad over the next few weeks would be very welcome.
I too would welcome the former speaker's presence in the state campaigning as the doughy poster child for Amendment One.

Nothing could help more to expose the true intent of the amendment--to codify bigotry against lesbians and gays into the North Carolina Constitution while doing absolutely nothing to promote marriage--than to have the narcissistic, philandering, thrice-married, disgraced former speaker campaign on its behalf.
