You know you've really got to hand it to Newt Gingrich -- and I don't mean the Republican nomination. Personally, I'd think twice about even asking my wife for an open face sandwich -- much less that whole open marriage thing. Not our randy boy Newt -- or so says Marianne Gingrich, who is now quite possibly one of my very favorite Newt wives yet. My only regret is that Marianne can't take Rick Perry's place in tonight's suddenly even hotter Republican debate in South Carolina. Here's hoping Mitt tells Newt he should have hidden his mistress/wife off-shore in the Cayman Islands. As always, please add your own open-hearted songs below.

And remember, ladies, politics makes truly strange bedfellows.
