Conservative Sen Rand Paul (R-KY) mocks Newt Gingrich's marriages and Fox News' stance on Libya

(Los Angeles Times) - A dinner that was supposed to be lighthearted and humorous turned a tad serious when freshman Sen. Rand Paul got a bit personal at the expense of former Speaker Newt Gingrich.

"I was happy to see that Newt Gingrich has staked out a position on the war; a position or two, or maybe three," Paul said Wednesday at the Congressional Correspondents' Dinner. "I don't know. He may have more war positions than he's had wives."
