Awkwa-ard: Sanford win could spell trouble for House GOP leadership

We've already seen that Mark Sanford– cheater, hypocrite, trespasser– has no wisdom to impart. And yet he won an election, mainly because Republicans in South Carolina have the kind of wisdom and judgment skills that are surpassed only by Sanford's credibility and sense of ethics.

This despite the National Republicans pulling the plug on Sanford’s congressional campaign. What could all this mean to the Congressional GOP?

The Hill:

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) is heading back to Congress — and that may not be good news for House GOP leadership.

Sanford owes party leaders nothing, as they refused to spend money on his campaign in the closing weeks and held him at arm's length for much of the race. 

He's also a vocal — and stubborn — fiscal conservative, and will be sworn into the House at a time when GOP leaders are battling to control an unruly conference.

The first potentially awkward moment will come when Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) swears Sanford in, likely in the next few days.

The Boehner couldn't even bring himself to mention Sanford by name when he was asked if he’d be welcomed back. To make matters worse, Sanford is due in court on Thursday to face his ex-wife’s accusations of trespassing. That could push his swearing-in ceremony back until next week.

While it’s likely Sanford and House GOP leaders won’t have a warm and fuzzy relationship, it’s unclear whether he’ll be accepted by House conservatives either.


But you know where he will be very welcome? Fox.

Lookee there! Mark Sanford is exploiting his very own private god to exonerate himself from all that cheating and abandonment of his family and the state for which he was responsible... again. What, did his god text him or leave a voice mail to tell him he was magically free and clear of all responsibility and fit to run?


Asked during an interview on CNN's "Starting Point" on whether the former Republican governor has any advice for Weiner as he considers making a bid for New York City mayor this year, Sanford said he's not looking to impart any wisdom.

You can't impart something you don't have.

"I wouldn't presume to give anybody else advice." Because you have no advice. And the only ones who would listen are those stupid enough to vote for you.

"I thought my time in politics was forever over." Many of us were sure hoping it was. But the Republican "family values" hypocrites in South Carolina apparently care nothing about honesty, integrity, ethics, or the sanctity of marriage.

"Redemption... A god of second chances..."

1. Leave religion out of politics.

2. You have not redeemed yourself in the least. How's that fiancee of yours? Your kids like her? Don't you have a court date coming up tomorrow on charges that you trespassed at your ex-wife's house ?

3. Did Sanford give President Clinton a second chance? Does Sanford's god only forgive Republican hypocrites?

Is anyone out there as utterly and completely disgusted as I am?


Dep't. of How Fitting: Online dating, extramarital affairs website features Mark Sanford as poster boy

WCSC-TV has the best article ever about a dating service that has chosen Mark "Pretends Not To Hear Colbert-Busch’s Dig About His Affair During South Carolina Debate" Sanford to represent them.

But this isn't just any ordinary website. This one matchmakes (that is now a word) people who are on an infidelity hunt. They are featuring Mark Hiking the Appalachian Trail but Really with Argentine “Soul Mate” Sanford as their Very Special Poster Boy for an ad campaign to market their, erm, "products" to like-minded cheaters, just like Mark!


"Forgiving and forgetting" was never so much fun! But remember, don't tell the kids!

And how ironic that the billboard juxtaposes the word "use" right next to Sanford's gigantic lying mug, as in "Use Sanford"... just the way he used everyone in his life.

Here's what the service has posted on the front page of their site, in a very small, teeny tiny font:

Mitt Romney: Commander-in-Cheat?


UPDATE: This post is not a comment on President Obama's performance one way or another. The questions raised have nothing to do with how he did. This is about Romney and only Romney.

So there I was on Twitter last night, minding my own beeswax, when suddenly I got all kinds of tweets asking me if Willard M. Romney brought notes to the debate. If he did, that's against the rules. If he did, it's a quite a statement about what's left of his character, if anything. If he did, then he's even sleazier and more dishonest than I thought.

The Big Question o' the Day is: Did he or didn't he? I retort, you deride:

All you need to watch is the first 11 seconds.

UPDATE: Here it is in slo-mo, h/t @MzYun:

More video here.

I wasn't going to post about this, but the story is growing, and now Los Angeles radio hosts are all over it, among others. So what do you think?

In a First, Debates Give Presidential Candidates the Topics Ahead Of Time


Back in the olden days, this was called cheating.

Are the presidential debates in danger of becoming as scripted as professional wrestling?

Wednesday afternoon, the Commission on Presidential Debates quietly posted a press release announcing the topics for the first presidential debate in Denver on October 3. What the commission didn't say is that this may be the first time in history presidential candidates have been given the topics of a debate ahead of time.

"We had been thinking about this for awhile," says CPD executive director Janet Brown. "CPD's intention is to have the candidates come prepared for a more in-depth conversation."


Though specific questions were not given, debate moderator Jim Lehrer of PBS NewsHour announced the topics of the questions on the commission Web site, saying that three questions will be on the economy, one on health care, one on the role of government and one on governing.

"Romney, Obama debates to be more controlled and duller than usual,"
election reform blog Democracy Chronicles warned Thursday.


VIDEO: Team Romney edits video aimed at black voters to show NAACP audience applauding


“We need in our next president someone who will be honest, open and transparent.”

In that case, don't vote for Willard M. Romney.

I watched as he spoke at the NAACP. He was booed. He got tepid applause. The audience was polite, not enthusiastic. Did I mention he got booed?

Think Progress:

95 percent of black voters went to President Obama in 2008 and it is highly unlikely Romney will be able to capture the historically progressive demographic. In fact, an NAACP official told MSNBC that the Romney campaign brought their own African American supporters to fill in the July 11 event. Romney himself admitted that he expected to be booed.

After the disastrous time he's been having in "the nation of Great Britain", and now this edit job, it's clearer than ever that Romney's a desperate and inferior candidate and he knows it.

Then again, he edits the president and gets away with it, so we can't become complacent.

And now, because it’s election season and we’ll be extra busy, we GottaAsk. We do so reluctantly and would love to reach our goal so we can stop asking already!

Democrats cry foul early into Election Day; Sen. Taylor demands investigation

This last video is infuriating. Then again, Glenn Grothman is always way over the top.

As was pointed out last night, claims are being made by the Milwaukee Democratic Party that voters are getting calls telling them they don't have to vote if they signed the recall petition.



Meanwhile, State Sen. Lena Taylor, D-Milwaukee, sent a letter to Government Accountability Board Director Kevin Kennedy asking for an investigation into that alleged call and another that claimed the election was Wednesday.

There are also reports of Walker supporters paying homeowners to post Walker signs on their lawns.

The GOP apparently feels they have to resort to cheating and dirty tricks in order to win, despite the multi-millions they've spent to defeat the unions, teachers, women's rights, and of course, Dems in general.

Let's hope with everything we've got that our grassroots efforts will pay off, and prove that money can't buy everything.
