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?
