First Sarah Palin becomes a national joke: a wingnut MILF albatross for John McCain. Nuff said. Then comes Bobby Jindal--as the GOP's Obama clone; forget Vishnu--how's about an exorcism? Crash, burn. Out parades Newt, Rush, Beck and the rest of the loonies exhorting tea parties, attacking Judge Sonia Sotomayor on the basis of...well...they've shut up. Next, the recurring self-immolation of Michael "Lexington" Steele. But a bright spot was S.C. Governor Mark Sanford. Aren't Red States, scions of the old Confederacy (to whom the tea partiers pid such cupidity during these mumbled maniacal secession discussions), a bit behind the 8-ball in education, infrastructure, health care? Sure. But Mark stood up to that rascal, that arrogant mulatto President and said NO WAY. No stimulus money here. Sure we'll take defense spending, and a kicker for all our rednecks on Medicaid...but we're too proud to take money from that one in the White House to improve our schools and build our vital infrastructures. Hooray!!! A potential national candidate is born.
But the GOP state legislators in Columbia were not so happy behind closed doors. Seems it IS, the economy, stupid. It IS the budget, eclipsing efforts to make sure public schools teach that Jesus created the dinosaurs 15,000 years ago, or that blacks were just over sensitive about that slavery thing.
Mark disappears. Poof.
His staff lies or is told to lie. His wife, well, we all know that pathology. Yep, he's hiking, or we don't know where he is, or he's clearing his head.
No. He's not hiking. He's having his ashes hauled. In Argentina. He's having an affair, this typical family values Republican. This son of the South. This hero in the face of Obamaism. In Argentina. Hope he got some good meat. Hope he brought his kids back some bolos. Hope he got tango lessons.
Don't cry for me, Greenville-Spartanburg/The truth is, I pretty much f'd you
This is misconduct. Time to own up in Columbia. Time for the national GOP, the rapid pundits, the lying bloggers, to admit yet another comedy. Another crash and burn.
