In his latest diatribe at Cuban-American Pundits Henry Gómez comes to the defense of Bill Clinton, whose remarks on slowing the economy to decrease global warming Henry believes were taken out of context. He is far more generous to Clinton than he was to McCain whom he ridiculed in a recent post at Babalú for his embrace of economic disincentives to combat the phantom of global warming. Lest anyone should think that Henry approves of Clinton personally, he labels the former president the "Philanderer in Chief." Frankly, I think a man who is married to a lesbian and is not himself gay is entitled to a sexual outlet whether president or not. I find Newt Gingrich's own sexual hijinks more disgusting and inexcusable.
If Bill is a "philanderer" what shall we call Newt? I can think of no English word but canalla would fit him very well in Spanish. This wretch of a man asked his cancer-stricken wife for a divorce at the hospital so that he could marry his mistress whom he was two-timing with another hussy while calling for Clinton's impeachment for moral turpitude. Clinton may be no saint but he will not be in Gingrich's circle in hell, not for his sexual escapades, at least.
If Henry wishes to judge the skills of politicians by their bedroom antics — which he is certainly entitled to do — he should at least demand from his friends a higher standard of conduct than he condemns in his enemies.
