Ok, I’m losing it here. Maybe it’s time to form the Promise Breakers and get it over with.
“Governor Mark Sanford’s admission that he has had an affair with a woman from Argentina, whom he met through the exchange of emails, promises to spark yet another round of reflection and debate over how significant a politician’s personal life is when judging their professional conduct.
The South Carolina Republican, who apologized to his wife, family, staff and friends, said that he was willing to face the consequences of his actions. One of those was consequences was immediate, facing the judgment of the press, he said. Another was his resignation from the chairmanship of the Republican Governors Association. Whether the consequences extend to his resignation from the governor’s chair remains to be seen.” –Huffington Post
Okay, this is getting really bizarre, guys. I don’t care what your political pursuasion might be, this is just out of control.
Anyone have any theories as to why we’re having a total epidemic of hypocritical cheating by “Family Values” politicians who are engaging in some of the most egregious behavior out there?
I actually felt sorry for Mark Sanford on one hand because he seemed like a good man, but then I read today that he was one of Bill Clinton’s chief critics during Blowjobgate.
Called him a “rascal.” And he was.
Now, who’s the rascal? And on Father’s Day week-end. Shame, shame, shame on you.
Then again, spouse/cheater Sen. John Ensign apologized to his Republican colleagues behind closed doors Monday and received…a round of applause!
