Mark Sanford: Another One Bites the Dust

And here we have, in a mere one week, another shamed Republican presidential 2012 hopeful. Laid low by the strict moral view espoused by their twisted interpretation of ancient manuscripts, they fail to see the irony that is their life. While insisting that everyone else live up to a certain moral, they themselves fail the proverbial hypocrite test, of failing to practice what one preaches.

Personally, I don't give a damn if he had an affair with someone. IMHO, that's between him and his wife. The problem is, these politicians scream for morality, and then when they don't practice what they preach, it's because they're "just human." Well yes, they are just human, which is why they fuck up. So why can't that be a lesson to politicians, that we're not interested in your morality. Just do your damned job of representing the people, and don't worry about how I live my life and I won't worry about how you live yours. So long as no laws are broken, who cares? Instead, I'm sure Mr. Ensign and Mr. Sanford are blaming Satan, the scapegoat for everything, for their failings. That's the problem with religions like Christianity. They promote the belief that one is not responsible for their actions, that bad things are done by the devil (or by people influenced by the devil) and that if they only put aside their reason, that Jesus will make it all better by a simple thought in their head that he's a god and came to earth to save them, like some kind of superhero.

The 2012 election is going to be interesting. When your most likable (as in likable by those who have no thoughts in their head) is a dumb bitch from Alaska, you have problems. You see, the GOP has been the party of anti-intellectualism for the last three plus decades, and the lack of viable candidates that have half a thought in their head, shows us that this strategy has finally come home to roost for them. So not only do they now have a bunch of followers who are unthinking hypocrites, the core of their leadership is made up of much the same.


  1. All those sactimonious so-called christian republicans owe President Clinton an apology and the rest of us for putting us through their pious ramblings for the last 10 years.

  2. About all that's left is for Ken Starr to get caught polishing someone's wingtip in an airport bathroom stall, seems everyone else who wanted Clinton's head has pretty much been caught not using their own !

  3. Here's the difference- Clinton is idolized despite his bad behaviour, but republicans are punished for their's.
    If only Mark Sanford had been a Democrat, he would now be experiencing a spike in his popularity and perhaps clinch the 2012 election.

  4. "That's the problem with religions like Christianity. They promote the belief that one is not responsible for their actions..."

    Wrong, again. Do you just make this stuff up while you tap away in Starbucks? When you include a statement like that it just collapses the reader's belief that you have any capacity to reason.

  5. "...dumb bitch from Alaska."

    Let's see...she (Palin) is a governer, and you're not.
    I'd say she is smarter than you and certainly a lot nicer.

  6. Ah, yes. The ever present, supposedly legion, "anonymous." Too afraid to post with an actual ID, they have to resort to ad hominem attacks because they have no argument with which to refute anything I've said.

    Clinton was idolized? In what universe? Certainly not this one. All these hypocritical asshats screamed for his resignation, while boinking their own secretaries.

    And secondly, I hate Starbucks. They burn their coffee. I have plenty of capacity to reason. So are you telling me that one can be "saved" without a belief that Jesus came to earth to absolve people of their negative actions, i.e. sin? Anonymous fails Christianity 101.

    Palin is an idiot. Plain and simple. The things that she said. Anyone who thinks she's smart, must think that people like Britney Spears deserve a Nobel Prize.

    I'd say I'm a nice person. A smart ass perhaps, when it comes to observing the world, but I wouldn't stab you in the back. I also wouldn't run for political office. Talk about tarnishing one's soul.

    Oh, then you've gotta try the Mocha Chalito's yummy!

  8. Why do you care about my name? This is about your ideas and general attitude. It's your blog, not mine. You enjoy mocking certain things that I wish to with it. This is an opportunity for you to inflate your ego for your very small audience and an opportunity for me to poke holes in your off the cuff high school journalism assignments. We both know you'll never change your mind on anything at this point. Have a great day!

  9. Poke holes? Seriously? So far you haven't had anything to say but insults and ad hominem attacks. You haven't put forth a single argument, not even a flimsy one.

    Actually, this blog is a chance for me to vent my frustration about how people go stupid over religion and politics. So, thanks for the writing fodder.

    Oh, and one more thing. If you know I won't change my mind, then you're wasting your time here. But of course you're not here to change my mind, your purpose here isn't even to "poke holes" in my argument. It's quite clear that you're a troll, plain and simple. And now I waste my time. Good day to you.
