for some unpaid political commentary by a -- as per South Carolina law -- fornicator.
One of the big problems with the Christer theocracy the most vociferous wing of the Republican Party wants to impose upon America is that, being made up of humans, it has feet of clay. Or should I say, dicks of clay? I’d like to feel for this Mark Sanford fellow, with his o-so-human and imperfect love life, but I’ve so had my fill of these self-styled “Christians” talking morality and walking on the cheatin’ side of town. Why don’t they just shut the fuck up and stop wagging their fingers at the rest of us sinners, already?
O, and when are we going have a definition of “family values” that doesn’t make a hero of a rich man -- in one of the poorest states of the union, with the nation’s third highest level of unemployment -- who rejects federal stimulus money? Sumbitch pulled himself up by his bootstraps, you’ll pardon the phrase, by marring an heiress, which isn't a very realistic strategy for the rest of the poor bastards in that benighted state.
By the way, South Carolina state law actually makes adultery a crime, punishable by “a fine of not less than one hundred dollars nor more than five hundred dollars or imprisonment for not less than six months nor more than one year or by both fine and imprisonment, at the discretion of the court.” How about just a big A on his blazer? Or a brand? They used to be pretty good with the ol' branding iron down there.
