Let me get this straight! In South Carolina cheating on your wife, absconding with government funds and lying about where you were are all OK things to do as long as you are a Republican running for office in this enlightened state. It is so very important to go to church on a Sunday morning and show yourself to the congregation and claim to be a good Christian, faithfully say your prayers and that is truly all that matters.
Men are in control of both the pulpit and the government. I wonder if women matter at all or if they are simply idle nonentities. No worries, though. Women deserve to sit in the background. Mark Sanford will see to that!
Women of South Carolina, apparently having your husband cheat on you is acceptable behavior and leads to election to state office. Another proud moment I’m sure.
And while we are at it, the mother and father of the 2-year-old child who was killed by the 5-year-old who got a gun and ammunition as gifts must be so proud. The NRA certainly didn’t object and why should you? The price of one dead child contrasted with your right to have a gun is a fair price to pay, isn’t it? You should each be celebrating your freedom by sending the mother and father of that dead child a happy third birthday card.
Never miss a local story.
