    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.
    it's somewhat surreal; however, it's not completely unpredictable. with the level of partisan division in this country, party trumps everything for many people.

    Both wrong. Well...wrong and a half. Lying under oath...bad. Lying under oath while on trial of sexual harassment for jerking off in front of a campaign staffer and asking her to kiss it. Well...thats kinda an issue. Allegations of rape and sexual assault...those kinda matter too. Getting a blow job from someone he classified as a child...well...that just makes him a douchebag. But....a decent president and one I would vote in tomorrow if it were possible, considering who we have as available options.

    So basically...the people of SC decided that as a politician, this guy was better than the gal who's claim to fame was that she had a famous unfunny brother. Or was it a 'referendum' on Obama? Maybe the people of SC did what so many liberals on this site say they did in 2012...voted for the lesser of two evils.

    Why is her only virtue being related to Stephen Colbert?

    And the Sanford issue wasn't his cheating it was using public funds to take trips to see his girlfriend.

If the people of South Carolina want to be holier than thou assholes, no problem. But they should apply their assholishness equally. They don't. Why? Because they are hypocritical assholes. Attack the Democrats, while supporting Republicans that do exactly the same thing. On the other hand, Democrats fit into the same mold. Here they are, attacking the douche bag who used taxpayer funds to cheat on his wife, but when Clinton was in office, they supported him, and cried foul when Republicans went after him.

    Here is the deal. Political animals of all stripes, whether Democrats or Republicans are ALL douche bags. America deserves better.... On the other hand, if We the People refuse to change, and demand better of BOTH Republicans and Democrats, then We the People deserve exactly what We the People get.
    Sometimes I think we are getting exactly what we deserve. The fact that this asshole could even get on the ballot is a statement in itself.

    Actually it was religious right whack jobs exerting their influence over republicans to participate in a blatant witch hunt. If republicans had a brain, they would have gone after him for national security purposes. He put himself in a position to be bribed.

    Instead the religious right does what it always does, it attempts to legislate morality.
