    what's funny is the ration of **** one gets for citing Bush and that was just 5 years ago. but dragging up Marion berry's political corpse from around 3 decades ago... now THAT's some pertinent stuff.

    I didn't. I made the OP and about 7 different people dropped in and cited Marion Berry and as I said to Turtledude who was the first to make the comparison... I said I think that comparing Sanford to Berry an apt comparison.

    I think most people cited him to show that voters often disregard character for more immediate concerns, and not as a means to justify his behavior

    I will honsetly say that I think you did so to show that voters often disregard character. Most of the others seem quite happy that Sanford is in and if that's the case, then using Marion was simply justification.

    For the record, the name is spelled "Barry."

    You're wasting your time with the insults. Sanford's peccadillo was universal and apolitical.
