Had it with Hypocrites
Governor Sanford of South Carolina was in Argentina getting it on with his mistress and not out hiking the Appalachian Trail. Did anyone really think he was out hiking? Really? Honestly I really do not care if he was hiking or having an orgy with under aged boys, it is not my business nor anyone else’s. What is bothering me is that Republicans who espouse to be so strongly for family values are now supporting the Governor as if the family values that they hold so dear are only values when it is convenient. Republican representatives are instead praising the Governor for making public the affair as if confessing the sin makes it all ok. That may work in church, but last I checked a freely given confession still ends you up in jail in the courts of South Carolina.
I just don’t get it, the hypocrisy I mean. I thought hypocrisy was a sin and the republican we so strongly right wing that these sort of flip flopping would be counter to dogma.
The republican need to get in agreement, throw Sanford under the bus and get on with it. He needs to be the first pariah of the new political age. While you are at it add Ensign and Stevens to the spot under the bus and move on and be consistent.
Now we are looking at days of coverage about a stupid news item.
