Disappeared GOP governor admits to affair

Why is there such a double standard?

If a Democrat had done something like this, it would be the talk of the pop-up media for years, and they could forget about ever winning elected office again.

But since South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is a Republican, little is said about it - even though the Republicans are usually the ones who try to run everyone else's lives.

Now Sanford has admitted to an extramarital affair, after he temporarily vanished over the weekend.

Mark Sanford, as you know, is an idiot. This is the man who allowed pigs to shit all over the floor of the state legislature because he had some point he wanted to make. (It was a bit like Ozzy Osbourne biting the head off a chicken during a record company meeting.)

Laughably, Sanford has been considered a possible contender for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. And he probably still is, because scandals that would destroy any Democrat forever don't seem to stick to Republicans.


  1. I thought it was Alice Cooper who bit the head off the chicken.

  2. It was all over the NP and R today.

  3. It was all over CNN and internet news sites. Tim doesn't get cable. I don't know what "media" he thinks is saying little about it.
