Newt Gingrich. From source, Raw Story
I'd be happier if we weren't--yet again--voting on a group of tax-paying citizens' civil rights. Something wholly un-American. I'd be happier if busy-bodies would quit proposing laws that only outlaw the rights of "others." When you have no stake in something, it is infinitely easier to vote against it. And I'd really like it, if that doughy pant-load, Newt Gingrich, would shut his blubbery pie-hole about any legislation to do with marriage. Not only is it brazenly hypocritical, he is an utterly irrelevant voice among a sea of them. His final political achievement is being a barnacle on Mitt Romney's ass. Who gives a flying crap what Gingrich thinks?

That’s why I urge you to vote for the initiative right here in North Carolina. The chance to vote for a referendum to declare clearly that marriage is between a man and a woman. . .”
