Gov Sanford is a Republican

Just thought I'd mention it. Fox keeps putting that (D) after his name.

I like his writing, pretty good letters, hot! I think I'm falling in love myself.

Romantic, passionate, literary, everything a good love letter should be, who'd of thunk it?

Ho-hum. Republican embarrasses Obama by complaining about stimulus dollars. Suddenly Republican is consumed by a big scandal. BIG surprise there.

So he cheated on his wife. So what? Half of marriages end in divorce. And how many Democrats have had the same problem? Hmmm?

A message from earth to Alaska. Obama isn't embarased by a governor of a state with 12% unemployment refusing money to keep it's school teachers employed, and suggesting that the mini scandal originated from any other source than the Gov going AWAL for a week is nutty.

PS I noticed the pork belly state took the money last week. When are all of you up there going to stop living off tax dollars from California and New York?

Of course if Republicans would stop telling the rest of us how to run our moral lives these stories might make less news. You know, who to marry, when to abort, that kind of thing. To say nothing about voting to impeach Clinton. Wonder if Sanford will just go ahead and resign like he thought Clinton ought to have done.

What is it with Fox mislabeling Republicans every time they're caught in a sex scandal. Happened with Foley, too, I seem to remember others. "we decide, you watch"

Fox aplologises

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/24/fox-news-identifies-sanfo_n_220...

Since when does Fox apologise for intentional misinformation? Just checked out my window, no flying pigs.

Good flow chart to make sense of sex scandals, who, what gender, professional or amature, etc.

Yes lets all stand up and applaud the party of Barney Frank for moral rectitude.

Pangocat with your undying interest in republican sex scandals I'm starting to think you have a fetish, in fact the quirkier the scandal the more excited you seem to be. I bet your searching madly to find the details on Sanford's affair and hoping it is really really wacky.

Sanford's done, America can't stand hypocrites. Which is also why Obama will suffer if his administration supports taxing health care benefits.

Affairs by anyone; neighbor, public officials, Democrat, Republican or Independent should not ever be condoned or defended.
This is one area where Democrats differ from Republicans whether they be Conservative or Liberal. Dems will make all kinds of excuses and then try and divert attention by using Republican indiscretions as a blocking maneuver. Sort of like the 3rd grade tactic " But he did it also" used when caught red handed.
Republicans on the other hand, will boot your sorry butt out without blinking an eye.
Good link bit. Even though disgusting, thanks for posting.

As for your "other observation. While I have decided to not respond to idiotic posters and their equally idiotic posts I have allowed myself to respond to a response from another poster. Hence I will say that I too have noticed the same line of thought and other preoccupations with equally perverted subjects from said poster.

Bitmasher your link seems, , , dated. Twenty years ago? Seem to remember something about Kenedy and Monroe, sure you don't want to bring that up? And no I'm not so into the Sanford thing except as humor, probably good for a few laughes on late night comedy.

The reason Democrats get such a kick out of Republican scandals is because you all are always so sanctimonious. Family values come on. Also if you add up the totals the Republicans seem to be far ahead of late. Downright kinky ness doesn't turn me on as much as hilarity. The funnier the situation the more I like it. Larry Creag was pretty much up there, all that foot taping stuff.

I read one suggestion that if you can make an arguement that you know is untrue it's more likely that you will also cheat those around you for your own selfish reasons. Isn't republicanism all about, "I got mine, the heck with the rest of the world"?

I heard more than a couple of lefties say nicer things about Sanford after hearing his letters, He comes across as a normal human being with feelings, what a concept. Sanford is trying to hang in there, meeting with his cabinet today. Jackson stole the headlines, Monday is who knows what.

Interesting that J tapia finds the article disgusting. (about Barney Frank) You mean homosexuals J tapia? What exactly did Barney Frank do wrong now? Certainly didn't endanger the relationship with his wife and create years of turmoil and upset for his children. No double adultery there. Why not use John Edwards as an example of a Democrat harming others, heck his wife has incurable cancer as I understand. What exactly is it about Frank?

Rush says it's all Obama's fault.

Something about the stimulous money. (Rush the guy who likes a little fun on holiday with?)

Ah moral relativism the cutest of liberal tricks. Barney's ok, he didn't mess up some kids, never mind that prostitution is viewed by most (regardless of religious background) to be a bad thing. The $80 wasn't really for paid sex, instead it was money to lift him out of poverty. Duh!

Liberals tend to find sexual deviation as endearing, somehow making the scandalous politician more human. The difference between a sexually deviant republican and the same democrat is that the democrat generally stays in power. This speaks volumes about the basic difference between a person that tends to vote conservative or vote liberal. Note that I didn't say party, because party lines and platforms tend to get pretty blurry.

I could care less about Rush's opinion. Sometimes I think more anti-Rush people follow Rush than Rush supporters. Its a love-to-hate kind of thing. Honest, really, I tend to think of myself as a conservative and I've never read or listened to Rush. Pangolin you are either far left or deep field left, who knows, but its tough to see you as being right of anything and you quote Rush on a regular basis. So I have a lefty, listing to Rush telling me what it means to be conservative because Rush said so. Nice, I wonder what Freud would say?

Deviant? It's kind of an old fashioned term don't you think? Gay bashing is out of vogue, just so you know.

Trying hard to think of any Democratic politicians that have remained in office of late. Edwards? Spitzer? Both gone.

Craig, Vitter, Love Your Tan Lines Sanford, still here.

Like him or hate him Rush is considered by both Dems and Republicans to be the leader of the Republican Party or so the pols tell us.

Here's a slide show of favorite fall from grace Repubs, limited to (mostly) federal office holders and the past 8 years, (no Newt). Some congress people I'd forgoten about. That guy in Florida who claimed to be defending himself from getting mugged is pretty funny.
