      Another suck-puppet post by a lying, cowardly moron.

      Examples of conservatives writing about being embarrassed by the Sanford nomination are not hard to find…IF one has any capacity for critical thought and curiosity.

      And the people of SC found Sanford a better choice than the lying Collectivist who was pretending to be a moderate, for which I can hardly blame them.

        I approve of public officials using public money to hike the Appalachian Trail with their illegal immigrant mistresses. Because I believe in fiscal responsibility. Also, too, paying illegals to touch my junk is the only way I can get any thrills around here!

        I love markets!

    While we have BoooOOoobsInTehCT here posting as me, maybe he/she/it will answer a question or two…

    1. looks like Breitbart was right about PigAford, dunnit?

    2. looks like Benghazi was a real story, and not a Fox confection, right?

    How do you feel about the racists Obama has nominated lately?

    Let me say upfront: I would rather we lived in a society where adultery had a higher social cost. That’s not to say people shouldn’t be forgiving or that there should be no such thing as second chances. But ideally, I’d like it if things were less loosey-goosey. Cheat on your wife, and maybe you don’t get to run for public office anymore. Send junk-tweets to random young women who aren’t your wife? Well there goes your dream of becoming mayor. Exploit an intern whose name you can barely remember while you’re the President of the United States, maybe your moral ranking should be downgraded to junk and you should quietly skulk off the public stage. Or, if that’s too much to ask, maybe the interval between scandal and rehabilitation could last a little longer than the maturation time of a fruit fly. No politician is so indispensable that we just can’t do without him (or her), never mind for a little while.

    But, here’s a newsflash: We don’t live in that country anymore. And any hope that we might be able to was not on the ballot in South Carolina yesterday. What was on the ballot was a choice between a woman who tried to dodge the fact she was a liberal running to advance the liberal agenda of the Democratic Party and a conservative whose marriage fell apart because he fell in love with somebody else. I’m not condoning Sanford’s behavior — at all — but in the parade of horribles we’ve seen from politicians over the last 20 years, Sanford’s behavior is almost quaint. He fell in love with an age-appropriate woman. His formidable wife didn’t run to the stage to gaze admiringly and forgivingly at her disgraced husband to lessen the political damage. She kicked him to the curb and moved on with her life. Every marriage is different and we can’t peer inside any but our own, but I admired Jenny Sanford’s response.
