What a champ. Here's betting he doesn't last his full term.


I don't know how he avoids resigning as Governor. From the sound of it, he's willing to give up as the chairman of the Republican Governor's (sic) Association but not willing to give up as the Governor. But let's consider this... you disappear for a week as the Chief Executive of a State, pass off a phony story about being distraught over stimulus money (which conservatives have been praising him for) get caught in two lies about where you were and what you were doing and then try to invoke "God's law" when you finally fess up. You didn't just make yourself look like a fool, you made conservativism itself look foolish, both in getting caught after posing as a "family values" conservative and then shilling that ridiculous story about the stimulus spending prompting your trip into the wilderness.

He's not just a liar and a hypocrite, he played his most important constituency for a bunch of fools. They'll make him resign and it's not like he can turn to moderates to save him. No one is going to bat for this guy.

Now, now. It's just about sex.

Can't we move on?

We have so much work to do for the children.

That's all you've got, Ned? Check your e-mail... maybe your talking points have arrived.

Seriously, Ned. Don't you feel a little bit used? I mean, the guy was trying to play you like a piano, claiming that he needed to "clear his head" after a tough legislative session in which he lost his fight to reject the Federal stimulus money. It sounds as though he was using some taxpayer money to fund his little excursions, too.

Democrats are standing around smirking, but Republicans ought to be furious. This is a guy who held himself out as a "family values conservative." I wonder if he bothered to tell John McCain about his little dalliances when he was being considered for the Veep spot.

If I were you I'd be calling for his head. I'm sure the Lieutenant Governor is a Republican anyway.

He is a Republicker and he is pissed. He was on Rachel Maddow's show tonight and was none to nice about the governor's actions. He could have turned over the power to him in case of an emergency. Oh wait...there was an emergency. Whilst the "adulterer" was off given the mistress one last ride, the good people of SC were dealing with a freakin' hurricane. Nice and classy. Kinda like his boy in TX huh? You fuckin' republicans sure know "family values". Let's see...Obama has been married once...two great kids...loves his wife, keeps his promises of taking her out on a date...oh yeah....but he has a ciggy-butt now and then. How dare he? I am with Chuck on this....fuck you republicans!

Used? You still make references to Bill Clinton's penis more than 12 years after the blue dress was sullied. Since then we have had Gingrinch's death bed divorce, Craig's wide stance and Tourette Syndrome infected tappy-foot, Foley's "In You're Eye's"-Say Anything-style courting of young, supple teenage boy pages, David Vitter's poopy-pants diaper fetish hooker habit, Mark "Don't Cry For Me South Carolina" Sanford and his excellent South America get away and Mr John "Resign Adulterer" Ensign. Your repeated response is always "It's just sex, blah, blah, blah". Seeing how that is inconsistent with the moral standards you set for Democratic office holders, it is easy to assume that you are being used as a party tool to spout hypocritical psycho-garble that serves no other purpose than partisan rah-rah.

I'm not surprised you leftists fail to understand Ned's point.

All Ned is saying, is that by today's GOP standards, if you're merely committing marital infidelity with a consenting adult of the opposite sex, you aren't really TRYING.

Sure, the surreptitious international travel part is a nice try, gives a suggestion of sex tourism. But then he gets there, and (so far as we know) he doesn't even PAY for it!

Come on, Sanford, take a cue from Neil Bush - there's a guy who KNOWS how to do sex tourism! Or talk to Rush, who just "happened" to have Viagra with him on an all-male jaunt to the Dominican Republic. Mega dildos, Rush!

See, we Republicans just want to rise above you Dims' plain vanilla, female-intern-giving-a-BJ stuff. We want to STAND for something. Prostitution; covert homosexuality; Mark Foley's, ah, appreciation of youth - and, let us not forget the occasional Baptist preacher found asphyxiated while wearing TWO wet suits and a condom-clad dildo up his ass.

(See? We conservatives were right! Condoms DON'T keep you safe, suckers!)

That's funny. I heard Randy Rhodes say the exact same thing last night. She went on to give suggestions to the GOP about improving membership. (21% claim to be R's) If they just came out and said we are the party of perverted freaks who do freaky shit with our assholes and prostitutes and big beefy gay men then they'd rule the world! Of course the retarded-religious right would have to start their own party. That'd be fine w/me. I think you are on to something TN, you and Rhodes could rule the leather and assless chapped world!!!!!! :twisted:

I think its clear that Iowa and Vermont are responsible for eroding the institution of marriage among Republican senators, governors, ....

I think I have this problem figured out. It's all Bill O'Reilly's fault. Seriously how can you not be turned on to the point of adultery after reading his sex novels?

They are so desperate for candidates it's not funny. Next they'll be running animals, clocks, and tables.
