    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

    It is disgusting... but bringing up Berry is hardly a good way to excuse Sanford's re-election. In fact, it makes him look even worse.

    Oh, I didn't excuse it. I just think it's funny that you both do it. OK, it's not funny...it's sad and damaging. But y'all cannot seem to understand that you both do this in spades. So I guess I'll be laughing all the way to hell; where y'all be taking us.

    I've seen you break this punch-line out multiple times. Is this your go-to statement when you've been bested and/or just don't want to make any attempt to respond while looking like you responded?

    No excuse needed. Sanford won because he was the better candidate.

    People who steal money aren't hypocrites -- they're criminals and should go to jail. Stop pretending anybody believes otherwise.

    Now, did tea partiers just elect a family value conservative who had an affair while in office? Yes or no? You can say it. It's OK that conservatism is morally bankrupt.

    It is my go to statement when I encounter lefty propaganda. There was no question of being "bested" (whatever that means) because we had not been previously engaged on this topic.

    No, he won because tea party types gravitate to weirdos and hypocrites. It's what they really value: guys who talk about family values while flying off to foreign mistresses. That's conservatism in a nut shell.
