South Carolina, and particularly, its more “advanced” area, Charleston, had a chance to prove that they have moved beyond the Civil War, and they have failed miserably tonight!
In bringing back the political life of disgraced former Governor Mark Sanford, putting him back in the Congressional seat he held in the 1990s, they have proved that South Carolina is the worst, most embarrassing state in America in the year 2013!
Certainly, South Carolina has had competition from states, including Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Arizona, but a state which could elect such individuals as Governor Nikki Haley, Senator Lindsey Graham, Congressman Joe Wilson, and former Congressman Tim Scott, appointed to replace an equally horrible Senator, Jim DeMint, wins the competition hands down! Now Mark Sanford has been added to the mix!
Meanwhile, the state remains way behind the national average economically and socially, but no worry, as the voters throughout South Carolina seem willing to stick in their Civil War mold, and support the Tea Party Movement, which wishes to bring South Carolina back to the “glory days” of Strom Thurmond, and even further back, John C. Calhoun!
LOL!!! LOL!!! Marion Doar, 79 and retired from careers in the military and business, said he voted for Sanford. “Sanford was a fine fellow,” he said. “He still is a fine fellow. Following his heart as he did was foolish but it happens.” So yes it was a foolish thing to do, but as I said on the other post, he is now with that woman, which seems to show the voters that it wasn’t a lowlife sleazy sexual conduct, like banging and intern in your office or tweeting pics of your private parts to women you don’t know (that is truly sick). 54% – 45% win is what I would call , ass kicking. As for the GOP National Committee, once again they proved to be a bunch of losers, they didn’t support Sanford and of lost again. By the way, Rand Paul supported him. Just goes to show you that conservatives are more in touch with their base that the RINO’s.
No, it shows that conservatives are in touch with their “private parts”, while invoking God’s forgiveness! What hypocrisy, having no limits, and just appealing to the lowest common denominator of selfishness and greed!
Hilarious to read the anything goes if it feels good do it bunch preaching about morals. “I did not have sex with that woman” 50 million babies dead party. Not a strong position of debate.
Totally agree Professor!
