I will say that I think Sanford is a scumbag. I don't know how much I would have cared if he lied to his wife. But he kept changing his story, and it makes him look like a douchebag. Come on, Sanford. You get all high and mighty about the federal spending bill but you're cheating on you wife?
Anyway, I feel so embarrassed for him about the posting of the e-mails. THAT is wrong, no matter how entertaining they are. I would be horrified if my personal e-mails were posted for all the world to see. Shame on the media who are posting them!
I would chat with her when I'm feeling particularly snarky, but I wouldn't ever call her on the phone.
Clinton went on his definition of the word "is" tour, and liberals just lapped it up.
Do we remember Gary Condit's affair? Or Tim Mahoney, the guy that came in after Mark Foley and then admitted that he too ended up having an actual sexual relationship with a congressional aide turned staffer (but it wasn't a guy, so of course not as big of a story). Gavin Newsome, the Mayor of San Fran, with his affair? And ditto down the road in LA with Antonio Villaraigosa. Paul Patton, Kentucky's Dem governor and his mistress? Kwame Kilpatrick in Detroit with a few potential ones. The duo of "New" offenders, Jim McGreevey of New Jersey and Spizter of New York. Sam Adams, Mayor of Portland, with an 18 year old guy. Bob Wise of WVa having an affair with a state employee.
No, this isn't just a GOP thing...its a politician, or even a "human" thing, however it becomes a much bigger deal in the media when its a republican, especially a gay republican as you can see in the Foley case when compared to any press for Mahoney.
I agree with you though, unless there is an issue of public funds, it happening on the publics time, or happening with a subordinate or co-worker, I generally think it should not be nearly this kind of story regardless of the side. I feel bad for someone like McGreevy who was having to live that trying of a time in his life so publicly.
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
But, then you totally ignore posts such as these:APS said:I just find it incredibily disappointing when a new person immediately blasts the opposing party in childish ways. Why even sign up for a debate board if you're just going to call names and whine like a baby?
Oh, wait, you're both Liberals...nevermind.I'm kinda sad.
Ensign and now Sanford were caught porking adult women.
The last three Republicans caught with their pants down were either blowing men in airport stalls, chasing young boys, or wearing diapers with hookers.
So this latest stuff is kinda boring unless it turns out Sanford was actually noodling underage midget trannies.
apdst, if you look at the bottom of any post, you should see a handy button labeled "quote". It let's you quote with the name of who you are quoting, and links back to their post.
