ONE WIFE, TWO...

ONE WIFE, TWO WIFE, RED WIFE, BLUE WIFE. Over at The Corner, Kate O'Beirne writes:

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Governor Mitt Romney's great-grandfather had multiple wives and two great-great grandfathers had 10 wives each. The article allows that Romney "is a confirmed monogamist of nearly four decades and polygamy has been absent from his family going back two generations." While some might note the upside of generously sharing those handsome Romney genes in the past, current history is noteworthy. Should Mitt Romney join a 2008 race that included John McCain, Rudy Giuliani, Newt Gingrich and George Allen, the only guy in the GOP field with only one wife would be the Morman.

It's funny �cause it's true. For a more serious look at the politics of adultery in the GOP's 2008 field, check out Midterm Madness contributor Steven Benen's piece from the Washington Monthly, which goes over the histories and political implications of these conservative cads in some detail.
