Sanford Bites the Big One

SC governor Mark Sanford has joined Newt Gingrich, Mark Foley, Larry Craig, John Ensign, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Haggard---among many others---in the constellation of right-wing hypocrites brought to disgrace.

As a libertarian who regularly denounces the social engineers on the Far Right, far be it from me to pass judgement on Sanford's indiscretions (though if he were a Democrat, the media would be hyping the 'scandal' and the 'immorality' of everybody except the Far Right, who, of course, need sympathy, prayers, and understanding). But it certainly doesn't show much actual intelligence for a would-be presidential contender and secessionist kommisar to be disappearing to Argentina in the hopes no one would notice his absence.

These guys ought to finance the 2012 campaigns by publishing their own versions of 'stupid crook awards'.
