Jon Stewart took a crack at analyzing the scandal brewing over the revelation that Republican hopeful Newt Gingrich asked his second wife for an “open marriage.” “Oh, oh, it’s the second of his three wives, Marianne! The Jan Brady of Mrs. Gingriches. The meat in his wife hoagie, the Empire Strikes Back of his wives. Who ends kind of sad but in retrospect is really the best one in some respects!”
Stewart then played a clip of ABC News’ Brian Ross‘s visit to The View, where he discussed when Marianne was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Gingrich asked her for a divorce.
“First wife cancer, second wife multiple sclerosis, can Newt Gingrich be reclassified as a pollutant?” Stewart snarked. “Of course, the guy is like the dioxin of husbands!”
“I think i’m going to be sick…and then Newt will leave me!” he jokingly added.
