Newt Gingrich, Bob Livingston and Dennis Hastert.

What do they have in common?

All three were Republican congressmen. 

All three were Speaker of the House or the designated speaker.

All three left Congress to trade on their public service to become very wealthy consultants and lobbyists.

All three preached high moral standards, the sanctity of marriage and family values.

They led the campaign to impeach President Bill Clinton, who offended their high moral values by having oral sex with a White House intern.

Benjamin Netanyahu became the first Israeli prime minister to reject an invitation from the President of the United States to meet at the White House, and he didn't do it through diplomatic channels but by a leak to reporters.

The move was seen widely in Washington and Jerusalem as a personal expression of contempt for this president and very much in character with this prime minister. It is hard to see what he thinks he would achieve by insulting Israel's most important ally and the leader of the world's only superpower.
