With the latest scandal, Mark Sanford, the bigger deal is that he simply disappeared from office for five days and didn't let anyone know where he was. Apparently he also was in Argentina with his mistress on the state's dime. It's all a bit ridiculous.
Even more ridiculous is, once again, Rush Limbaugh. When a Democrat cheats on his wife, we never hear the end of it. They are not only condemned by their own party, they are used as examples of immorality in the conservative media repeatedly. When Republicans do it, they seem to be met by applause and excuses. The latest takes the cake though, even for Limbaugh. According to Chattahbox:
“[Sanford] had just tried to fight the stimulus money coming to South Carolina. He didn’t want any part of it; he lost the battle. He said, what the hell. I mean, the federal government’s taking over…what the hell, I want to enjoy life.”So, let’s recap. Because of President Obama’s economic policies implemented to prevent the complete collapse of our economy, mostly due to eight years of damaging Republican policies under the Bush administration, Republicans like Gov. Sanford are saying to themselves, “To hell with it,” “I just want to get away…” “What the hell, I want to enjoy life.”Is this man still high on his prescription painkillers? I can't understand how anyone can listen to Limbaugh - especially women. His sexist, downright piggish, comments over and over again - backed up by his hypocritical conservative rationalizations - just keep getting more asinine. He is taking his reputation of an overpaid windbag to a whole new level. One of these days, I'm just hoping his microphone doesn't work anymore.
According to Limbaugh’s reasoning, Gov. Sanford then cheated on his wife, abandoned his four children and his constituents, despondent, muttering under his breath “…I don’t even want to fight this anymore…” “To hell with it,” and then in a Zombie-like state boarded a plane to Argentina to be in the loving arms of his South American “exotic” mistress.
And all of this behavior can be attributed to Democrats ruining the country and Obama’s economic stimulus.
