Today’s GOP hypocrisy is courtesy of South Carolina Republican Governor Mark Sanford.
Mark Sanford last graced this blog’s pages when he announced that he wasn’t going to take any of Obama’s (dirty, socialist) stimulus money.
For the last week, however, Sanford has been in the news for going AWOL without his security detail. Neither his staff nor security team knew where he was (good job, guys) nor did his wife or four children, even though his absence included Father’s Day. Sanford at first said he went hiking on the Appalachian Trail to relieve stress but was later caught in the airport coming back from Argentina.
Why was he in Argentina?
To see his mistress, of course.
Sanford apologized blah, blah, blah and will resign as head of the Republican Governor’s Association but not the governorship. He was favored to run for president in 2012.
Hypocrisy point #2: Sanford voted to make English the official language of the United States. (As Dan Savage asks, “Was English the official language of your extramarital affair? Or did your Argentine mistress beg for your cock in Spanish?”)
I can’t believe these fucktwits want to manage the sex and reproductive lives of Americans. Will they ever get off their high goddamn horse?
