The only other previous public interest in her from the past involves a mug shot.

    A get why Sanford beat that bag of nothing running against him, but couldn't the folks of SC find another Republican to run?

    Can't stand the Sanfords of the world.

    Don't kid yourself.

    It was opportunistic establishment types who used the "religious right" to do their dirty work. Clinton presented a target of opportunity and the Republicans pounced. It worked, too. G.W. Bush became the next President.

    WASHINGTON, DC — The Republican National Committee announced today it will be removing the much-hyped “Family Values” agenda from its platform.
    Since the early 1980s, when President Reagan and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich gave birth to the so-called “Republican Revolution,” conservatives have campaigned on the vague term as a way to lure religious extremists to their cause.
    But that “term” has weighed heavily on Republican politicians, who have found it burdensome to conduct their own lives in accordance with the lofty values it espouses.
    “It’s just too difficult,” said Gingrich, who is currently married to his third wife, whom he met while he was married to his second wife. “Trying to push an idea that is contrary to our nature is not good for the party.”
    In other words, we are scumbags. We just can't go around telling others to behave when we are banging everything that squats to pee and even many of those who do not.

    You have to love the right wing apologists. As if you would ever admit falling prey to your religious right bedfellows? Y'all got up with fleas.

    Former Republican South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford revived a scandal-scarred political career by winning back his old congressional seat Tuesday in a district that hasn't elected a Democrat in three decades.

    The comeback was complete when he defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. With 87 percent of the precincts reporting, Sanford had 54 percent of the vote.

    too ****in funny to see this level of partisan blindness.

    Considering Democrats keep electing people like murderer-Ted Kennedy Corrupt - Chris Dodd, Loverboy-John Edwards, Charlie Rangel and Whitewater architect-Hillary Clinton. Now.....Let's talk partisan blindness

    The funny thing about this post(other than the fact that the point went right over your head) is that it is obvious that you actually believe that the Democrats somehow don't have just as many fleas.

    Clinton never had to run for office after the lying under oath thing.

    The attacks on Clinton were accusations of marital infidelity, you know, character attacks.

    Public interest is not a credential, especially when that interest is largely scandalous, as in Sanford's case. Aside from being an ethically ambiguous ideologue, I don't see what qualifies Sanford as a candidate.

    As for Busch:

    After graduating, she completed a South Carolina State Ports Authority business development internship, and worked for Associated Maritime Industries Inc, as a liaison between the AMI and the U.S. Federal and State Governments.[17] She then worked as the Regional Director for Sales and Marketing and the Director of Business Development at Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL), where she was responsible for international maritime relations and South Atlantic and North American sales.[18][19] She left OOCL in 2008, when she was hired to be the Director of Business Development at Clemson University’s Restoration Institute, described by the Charleston Post and Courier as “the school’s corporate matchmaker” for the University’s development projects for wind turbine testing, water studies, and renewable energy.[17][20] Colbert Busch also works as the Director of Sales and Marketing Clemson’s Wind Turbine Drivetrain Testing Facility.[21]

    Colbert Busch is a founder and former member of the Executive Board of Directors of Charleston Women in International Trade, and former member of the College of Charleston’s Business College Alumni Advisory Board.[22] She’s also served as chairwoman of the 2006 S.C. International Trade Conference, the chairwoman of the Maritime Association Port of Charleston and is board member of the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce.[23][24]"
