How sad than an adulterous man who is a member of the "personal righteousness" party could win. Hypocrisy knows no bounds.

It's good to know that there are other places besides Utah that would elect a Republican no matter what...

Calls to mind the old quote about South Carolina: "Too small for a republic, too large for an insane asylum."

If Ted Kennedy can be re-elected, -why not Sanford?

So did our first 4 posters vociferously defend clinton who used the white house for his extra-marital affiars? Then he lied to the courts and the rest of us about it.

@Lost,

Nope, I thought Clinton's actions were an embarrassment to the office he held. I thought his sudden claims piety and tearful repentance were disgusting.

On the other hand, at least Clinton never ran for another public office on a "Jesus saved me so vote for me" platform in a district that holds itself up as a pillar of religious and moral rectitude. Mark Sanford voted to impeach Clinton. That he could entertain thoughts of winning the congressional seat was worthy of laughable. That he actually won is shocking and another sign that some voters are capable of massive moral compartmentalization when it's a candidate from *their* preferred party.

--When a liberal democrat lies, the media looks the other way. Therefore the public doesn't care.

--When a Republican tells the truth, the media spins it to look like a lie. Remember Romney's taxes?

--Benghazi vs Watergate is a prime example of media bias.

It's amazing how so many people can be mislead.

It's amazing how so many people can be mislead. TRUE . . . and for the most part it's the ones on the far right fringes that are doing the mileading.
