Some recent tidbits of information which have landed in the World's Laziest Journalist's inbox indicate that it may be time to write a column about the possibility that Republican Party may soon need to redefine their stand on the Sanctity of Marriage.

 

Item no. one is the fact that after admitting that he had asked his wife for an open marriage, Newt Gingrich won the South Carolina Primary.

Item no. two:   Playboy magazine is about to begin marking the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of the Playboy Philosophy series.

 

Item no. three:   A caller to the Norm Goldman radio talk show pointed out that the Republicans discredited Herman Kane because of clandestine love affairs, but the Republicans are giving Newt the old "See no evil" response for his request for an open marriage.   The caller automatically accused the Republicans of being racist in their diverse reactions.   It never occurred to that caller that the difference is the transparency of the need for diversity.   Kane relied on deceit.   Newt prefers the philosophy of openness and Swinging.

Item no. four:   We found our paperback copy of Gay Talese's book "Thy Neighbor's Wife."

 

Since a large portion of journalism in America these days is based on celebrity gossip wouldn't a Swinging couple in the White House be a godsend to the Political desks in newsrooms all across the USA?   Can you just imagine how enthusiastic the coverage of a visit by a Swinging first family to French President Nicolas Sarkozy's home would be?  Newt could elicit (not to be confused with the word illicit) comparisons to JFK by quipping to the press:   "I'm the man who is accompanying Callista to Paris."

 

Didn't the wife of a Canadian Prime Minister generate extensive gossip and criticism of her husband by being a fan of the Rolling Stones band, a few years back?

Reality TV is very popular on cable these days.   Perhaps it's time for an adventuresome production company to make a deal with a swingers group?   How about a series titled "Return to the A-Frame"?

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
