Mark Sanford Defeats Elizabeth Colbert Busch. But on the Bright Side…
Yes it sucks that South Carolina’s braindead voters elected Mark Sanford (R—Disgraced) to represent them in Washington DC. But what kind of victory was this? Mark Sanford’s district has been solid Republican for over thirty years, and Mark Sanford is a household name in South Carolina, for better or worse.
Sure he’s a slippery little spoogebucket, but he’s the devil they know. This race was sort of like a 300-pound wrestler fighting a 100-pound opponent. If the 300-pounder lost, the humiliation would be unbearable. And if he won, well whoopee shit, you just beat up somebody one third your size. OOOOHHHH!!!!
And some people are saying Mark Sanford will do the GOP more harm than good by winning this election. He’s “damaged goods.” A Washington Post column says in part:
“A Sanford victory puts that guy in the House Republican Conference. That means that not only do the late-night jokes start again but, more importantly, every GOPer in the House and Senate will be asked whether they support Sanford and what they think of serving with him.”
Works for me.
