Mark Sanford is a hypocritical chucklehead

Apparently “Hiking in the Applachians” is what the kids are calling it these days.

The South Carolinian Governor, a “Rising Star” in the Republican Party (not sure what that is really a euphemism for), was one of the many self-appointed finger wavers back when President Clinton was intern-hunting. Now, I’m not saying that was right by any means, but it had nothing to do with the business of governing. Only person with any kind of legitimate gripe then was our current Secretary of State. Sanford abandoned his post, used tax payer dollars and time to which he wasn’t entitled to further seek South American Nookie. The logic of any of this escapes me. I am now officially sick of spineless politicians who preach moral standards but they themselves are exempt from them.

It’s tedious and lord knows we all deserve better than to be continually talked down to like that, but in a world where primary candidates are ordained, I’m at a loss at to what to do about it.

  1. My take on it is thus; in the minds of the left if it is perfectly okay for Bill Clinton to stay in office after staining up an intern’s dress, then they should swallow Sanford whole and keep their criticisms to themselves. In the minds of the right if it is an outrage for a pol to stay in office after committing a moral crime that disgraces his office, then they should hang Sanford’s ass out to dry and make an example out of him.

    To be fair I haven’t heard any within the GOP say anything other than that he should resign; his own state party censured him, which is something that has never been done in SC. I think everybody is in agreement that he should go and that it would be best if it were of his own volition.

  2. I don’t think I would have cared had he not been one of those guys was out front, screaming “See, See” and other admonishments.

    I think the GOP has its collective hands full trying to right itself and figure what is next and he mostly represents a problem they just didn’t need.
