Gingrich more normal than Jesus?

I found this short video interesting. It's Newt Gingrich talking about forgiveness for his past infidelities, which is certainly a fine topic for discussion. However, at the very end, he makes the claim that his public failings actually make him "more normal" than some unnamed person who "wanders around, seeming perfect." I'm sure he's referring to Mitt Romney, of course. But the first thought that jumped out at me when I heard this was "did he just compare himself to Jesus???"

oh, and I also liked the "been there/done that" comment from evangelicals on the infidelity thing. I know he meant forgiveness, but that's not what it sounded like. ;)
