That's how I heard disgraced former SC Governor Sanford won the SC house seat in a special election.

Sure, while governor he went AWOL and lied about being on the AT to be with his Equadorian mistress... but a buddhist-christian who meditates daily wins in SC? That's just crazy.

Lewinsky...name sounds familiar...

Oh yeah, that's the woman whose affair with President Clinton (then-) Representative Mark Sanford considered grounds for impeachment. Now I remember.

What's with the either/or?  Why can't a man do both?

Interesting look into the psychology of the place. áTheir party world view is an America becoming devoid of morals, except a good ol'boy gets a pass with the feisty Latina (wink-wink). IMO -áThat's between those voters, ex-spouses/kids, and the new woman, just like Clinton or if Spitzer wanted to run ... so I'm not criticizing on the guy too much to be fair. áStill coming from the "holier than thou" party, it's been duly noted (again).

Not that I'm taking too wide a stance on this ...  :D

It just goes to show how bad the competition must be.

It's hard for some people to embrace gun grabbing, baby killing, liberty stealing socialist liberals.

Well, he does bring experience in foreign affairs to the office.

Of course hypocrisy runs rampant in politics, but the Republicans have turned it into a standard operating procedure. Darrell Issa reminds me more of Ken Starr every day.

True. The people of South Carolina made an informed choice. Both candidates ran a good race. Mark Sanford has a lot more experience going for him. But Elizabeth Colbert Busch did well in a tough battle. Her odds weren't good to start out with. She would have been the first Democrat this conservative coastal district would have sent to the House in more than 30 years.

There is also the fact that Sanford's ex is not so well liked and many could understand why he wanted to get away from her. And even in the bible belt voters are more interested in the whole candidate and just religion or a past family matter.

Why are you guys rippin' on Slinger? If the Dems ran a  moldy ceiling tile, it could have beaten Sanford.

(Especially if the mold looked like Jesus)
