    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.
    why did you just say "yeah the guy did wrong hes guilty ,and both sides do it"

    instead you point a finger at one party, but never the one who's camp your squatting in.

    I'm number 4. Its just an obvious example of how scumbags can get reelected. I think has more to do with what turtle mentioned earlier, than anything else

    Yup, as I said partisan irony is funny no matter which side of the isle it comes from.

    I would think that saying the President is guilty of a crime when he was in fact acquitted would be contemptuous lying about the CinC and be an Article 88 offense. Though you may not have not have been convicted, you seem to have admitted guilt.

    (See how that works)

    I'm not sure what you're talking about. Only one party is guilty of hypocrisy -- the GOP. They claim to represent "family values" and decry liberalism as the death of the family, blah blah blah. Then they take off to vist their Argintine mistresses (or boyfriends, in most cases involving homphobes).

    If you politicize your personal life, be prepared to be criticized for personal hypocrisy. Democrats don't claim they represent the height of family values, so they haven't politicized their personal life.

    But keep pretending not to understand the difference. It's all conservative have given their freakish and failed worldview

    So many assumptions, so little time. I've never been a military officer, so Article 88 doesn't apply. He committed perjury, and escaped conviction via political chicanery. That was the young ones' takeaway. They resented having at the top of their chain of command someone they would find unfit to serve among them.

    The upside is South Carolina is a national laughingstock, if it weren't already obvious.

    Berry was a sleeze and shouldn't have gotten reelected ever and should've been run out of town on a rail by the voters rather than embraced. At least with the crack and whores he bought I believe he used his own money and served time for his crimes in the federal pen.

    With Sanford you get a guy not on drugs but steals taxpayer money to **** around on his wife. Then to top it off doesn't face any justice for it because he was instead allowed to pay it back. Thousands of dollars. Now let any one of us schmoes steal 1/100th of what he did and tell the law that you have to be allowed to pay it back as an option for not having to face any justice for what you've done.

    We clearly aren't a nation of laws. Sad sad stuff.
