    **** that, they voted for Strom Thurmond.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    Re: Should Sanford resign?

    I'm not voting because there is no "other" option. Whether or not he should resign is entirely up to the people of South Carolina. If they can forgive him, he should stay, but if they cannot stand behind an adulterous governor, he should resign. I really don't care either way.

    I know. Ethical paradoxes, huh?

    Well personally I think voting or an open segregationist would probably be something I'd shy away from, but one that had illegitimate black children would definitely do it.

    South Carolina is an abyss.

    When it comes to people minus ethics getting elected, let us never forget Marrion Barry. If you can get convicted of possession of crack cocaine and still get elected, some one having an affair is minor.

    Or maybe the constituency is a little more intelligent than their idealogical represenation.

    I'm pretty sure I know which one the voters of South Carolina are going to take.

    Strom Thurmond had a black child while championing segregation, Newt Gingrich had an affair while publicly criticizing Clinton for the same thing and Larry Craig had anonymous gas sex in airport bathrooms while using gays as a whipping post to garner votes.

    If you claim to have "family values" you inevitably are morally bankrupt. And more importantly, you're intellectually bankrupt. People who run on "values" have no "ideas". If you have ideas your values are shown through your ideas. "Values" are empty and meaningless, so they attract empty and (black maid-****ing, wife-cheating-while-finger-pointing and bathroom cock sucking) meaningless people.

    I always dismiss any candidate that runs on "values" as a probable cross dressing party hack with nothing of substance.
    You show a stunning ignorance of what "values" are.

    Well, see, that's their opportunity to show us what kind of people they are. So that'd be the time to not vote for a segregationist with illegitimate black children that he had with his maid.

    Do you just want me to start singing "My Mammy" because I will.


    And I won't feel bad about it at all.

    I actually am not a hair-trigger race-card liberal. My views on race are more then outside of what'd be considered acceptable within the mainstream Democratic party...

    Nevertheless, I know how to separate my personal biases from how I think society at large should operate.

    I think a person can be what some might call a "racist" while understanding that society should treat everyone equally, even if they themselves might not.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?
