“Newt may weather this, because I don’t know how much of this is really unknown to people, and the divorce rate in the country is 50%!” the thrice divorced Limbaugh observed. “The angry ex-spouse is not something that’s unique in this culture, everybody has an angry ex-spouse — if they’ve been divorced! My only point is I have no idea how this is going to play out, I have no idea what the impact will be, I have no idea how many people will get mad at the media for this, I have no idea how many people are going to get mad at Marianne Gingrich, I have no clue!”
