Pro-Adultery Website Endorses Gingrich
A website that promotes adultery has endorsed Newt Gingrich for president, and even erected a giant billboard in Pennsylvania to announce it. Next to a picture of Gingrich making a “shh” gesture, the billboard reads: “Faithful Republican, Unfaithful Husband.” Ashleymadison.com, a dating website for people looking to cheat on their spouses, welcomes visitors with the tag line, “Life is short, Have an affair.” Gingrich has admitted to cheating on his wives, and Noel Biderman, the founder of the cheaters website explained, “Now that Newt is the leading contender in the race for the GOP nomination, we felt compelled to make a point to illustrate how times have changed when a serial divorcee/adulterer is capturing the hearts of the American people.”

a backhanded way of reminding the American public of Gingrich's serial infidelities?

Is this a real serious endorsement or a backhanded way of reminding the American public of Gingrich's serial infidelities?

See, you guys have your royalty for your entertainment and scandal, and politics are just politics. The Romans and Greeks had their Gods for drama and entertainment and politics were just politics. Here in the US, it is all rolled into one. Our politicians are our royalty and representatives of our gods, and they play all the roles at once. They preach, pander, and entertain. They have meteoric rises, and dramatic crash and burns!
I hate politics in the US.

"I'd be lying if I told you it was for his approach on the immigration policy," Ashley Madison founder and CEO Noel Biderman said in a phone interview Tuesday. "It's squarely on the shoulders, that if he is successful the way President Clinton was, that politicians can run and stay in office even if they have an indiscretion."
Biderman said the website didn't endorse any presidential candidates in the 2008 race, though he noted it clearly has a "fondness" for former President Clinton.
"He's a president after our own heart," he said.
But the GOP-packed 2012 presidential race seemed like an ideal opportunity to throw its membership's support behind a candidate, though Biderman acknowledged that its members were not polled about Gingrich.
"This hopefully resonates and maybe makes him more human," he added. "If we removed every unfaithful politician, I don't know if you'd have anyone left to govern."
