    Isn't this the quintessence of conservatism?
    Not being a conservative, I won't try to define the "quintessence" of conservatism. As for Sanford's future sexual behavior, that is his business and his business alone.

    Interesting, I would have gone with telling them the President received due process, which all Americans, even the President, are entitled to and the House Judiciary Committee voted for him to be tried in the Senate (that is what impeachment means) on the charges of grand jury perjury, civil suit perjury, obstruction of justice, and abuse of power, and he was acquitted of all charges by the Senate.

    As far as I know, being charged with a crime, tried, and acquitted would not prohibit military service, nor would any civil contempt findings.

    Maybe you should have struggled to know the truth, then you would not have found it such a struggle to explain it.

    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.
    I haven't followed the race much, but sometimes an electorate can get played. Just look at old man Barry from DC

    No one doubted that he was guilty of perjury, and the fact that he was the single individual in the entire US population eligible for the Presidential impeachment process did not do anything for the principle of equality before the law. The conclusion was that a rigged process gave him an outcome that no one else could have had.

    As I stated many many many pages ago in this thread, the one that kept electing Marion Berry sure did.

    No, you guys are not getting the House back, not after electing a incompetent and his lying bitch Secretary of State.

    Oh but it's " Budget Cuts " ......wrong, its a ideology thats immersed in corruptuon lies and blame.

    Hey, I just heard retailers are cutting hours ata a rate not seen in 30 hours. That directly translates to pain for the middle class and its because you people elected a dumb ass.

    Good job, did you ever think you would be complicit in the perpetual misery of millionz of people ?
    So no, you can't back up your claim of "Democrats in local races are paying for it". That's plural. And counting future races that you will probably forsee as well as you did last year doesn't work.

    Pssst: which party claims to be the party of "family values" and thus politicize their personal life and condemns the personal lives of other Americans?

    Answer that, and the rest of your post is irrelevant.

    I don't care if the tea party freaks in government take on Argentine mistresses. I do care if they promote policies about family values that involve condemning single mothers and gays and others who don't follow the hypocritical verbiage of freaks like Sanford.

    so that makes number 3 repeating the same exact thing that's been addressed in this thread already.

    I bet Sanford celebrates his win by booking a flight to Argentinia after breaking into his estranged wife's house to take some lingerie along.
