Sandra Day O’Connor At The Alfalfa Club Dinner

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor apparently got in a real zinger at last weekend’s Alfalfa Club dinner:

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor made a joke about the GOP candidates Saturday that reportedly drew much laughter.

At the black-tie steak-and-lobster Alfalfa Club dinner Saturday among political and business elites in Washington, she said that of two GOP presidential candidates, “one is a practicing polygamist, and he’s not even the Mormon,” according to an Associated Press report. The remark appeared to be a comparison between Romney’s Mormon faith (which no longer allows polygamy) and thrice-married Newt Gingrich. The dinner is closed to the press.

Nice!

    Shows how stupid she is. Polygamy is the practice of having multiple wives at the same time.

    @zzyzxroad: What Merl said about the joke….

    Don’t forget that there was overlap with all 3 of Newt’s wives. So polygamy might be a stretch. Polyamory? Adultery? Would all of those be more preferable?

    Which is why Clinton will forever be my favorite President.

    Am I seeing a little guilt in zzyzxroad’s comments? Seriously, adultery is now accepted by the wingnuts?

    Should I blame Reagan? Or would that be sacrilegious?

    What Newt practices is what some people (including myself) call “Serial Polygamy”.

    Personally, I think the joke was hilarious.
