      schtick, they just say whatever keeps the troops happy as long as the troops turn out to enable the kleptocracy.  

      Stepping back from the political, Gingrich noted that he has a personal stake in the gay marriage debate. His half-sister works at the Human Rights Campaign. He has gay friends who've gotten married in Iowa. The man who once compared same-sex marriage to paganism is now worried that the Republican Party could find itself trapped in a bygone era on the matter.
      Gingrich was probably never particularly passionate against teh gayz, in private.  He was just waiting for the now-accomplished tipping point in public opinion to make it safe to be less rabid.
