If they cannot control themselves privately how can they be expected to show controlled leadership? I realize that is not always the case but in the public eye it is often the appearance that matters most. Look at the last election as an example. No qualifications to speak of, No administrative experience other than the ongoing campaign, yet it still got the people onboard a ship of fools.
Pay the banks, pay the government, follow the exact same policies and still we as a people sign on. When a dog can take up three weeks of a news cycle and the most important accomplishment listed is how he looks in swim trunks then we are all in trouble.
While I like many of Sanfords positions his lack of vision in foreseeing how events played out force me to say "You're fired"!
