Newt was apparently so filled with righteous indignation at Bill Clinton's indiscretion, he felt compelled to condemn him loudly and often in the media - even on the day Bill buried how mother. The whole time Newt was experiencing great "moral outrage" about Bill's behavior, he was having his own little sexual adventures.

Of course, Newt wasn't the only Republican political figure who preached about the evil Bill had committed, while engaging in some pretty sleazy behavior, themselves. Remember Mark Foley, Rep. from Florida, who tried to seduce young male pages. He was a huge critic of Clinton. Then, there was Sen. Craig, arrested for trying to solicit sex in a bathroom stall. He was really appalled about Bill's behavior, and was eager to share his Christian views on the subject with anyone who would listen.

Those guys took political hypocrisy to a new level. Of course, they were aided by the news media, who still bring up the Clinton/Lewinsky thing even when it has no relevance to the topic being discussed. No matter how much of a stretch it might be to insert Clinton/Lewinsky into a story, or how awkward it sounds, some of the Clinton haters in media will mention it.

You are, of course, exactly 100% correct-- their hypocrisy knows no limit, and now we have the upcoming retrashing of Evil Bill. More hypocrisy.
