You know, you can't count on Newt Gingrich for a lot of things - like following through on his marriage vows, especially that whole 'in sickness and in health' section - but you can count on him to defend his fellow psychotic right wing brethren.
See, Newt apparently has a sad because everyone's been picking on poor, biologically illiterate Todd Akin even after he apologized for making the Republican Party look like a bunch of simians...while never actually changing his mind on the actual point that women can't get pregnant if they're raped. Like all true heroes, Newt could not sit idly by while some random male's honor was being sullied, and leapt to Akin's defense by comparing it to Joe Biden's "He wants to put y'all back in chains" remarks (fun starts at 2:40):
Yes, the self proclaimed "definer of civilization" and "leader of the civilizing forces", thought it was a genius idea to compare the two wildly differing comments. When David Gregory asked Newt if he was actually trying to imply the two situations were equivalent, the Newtster gave the ole' "No, of course I'm not saying that, but that's exactly it" response.
Newt also said that he feels the Democrats would easily lose on this current battle on abortion. Well to that I say, yes Newt, we are utterly terrified of having a debate on whether Republicans think rape victims should be allowed to have abortions or not. Whatever you do, please DON'T try and convince Romney to further discuss this subject!
