This is a non partisan blog. But seriously, this is the party of alleged "personal responsibility"??:
"Of course I'm not saying that Mark is gay," [South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford's wife Jenny] Sanford said, “but he may as well be. The moral decay in this country has claimed another victim and this time it was my family. Our marriage was perfect until these laws started passing around the country. Clearly the slow dissolution of the sanctity of marriage in America seeped into Mark’s psyche until he no longer felt compelled to abide by our vows.”
...“It’s finally happened,” said Rush Limbaugh, conservative radio personality. “America, I’ve been warning you for years that gay marriage would destroy the American family and look… there they are, a husband, wife, and four children — destroyed. When is this going to stop America? When will the liberals be satisfied? When all the marriages break up? This wasn’t Mark Sanford’s fault, this was Ted Kennedy’s fault. Sanford didn’t cheapen the value of marriage, he was victimized by the cheapening of marriage.”
Repeat. Mark Sanford Cheating on Mark Sanford's wife isn't Mark Sanfault's "fault," it is Ted Kennedy's fault (who probably does not know Mark Sanford's wife, and for all I know, probably does not even know Mark Sanford).
This is the type of logic that is being foistered upon millions of Americans daily, and which, to many, represents the soul and center of today's GOP. And yet Democrats are already in trouble of going right back to losing national elections to far right figures once again? (Though they don't seem to recognize it yet, which might well be part of the reason why.)
