If it makes Leftists mad, something has to be RIGHT about it.

Exemplifying the Difference between Republican and Democrat

Oh look at Mark Sanford taking the big hit for his affair like all the Republicans do when they get caught misbehaving.

He's resigning as head of the Republican Governor's association.

Now if you recall..... his wife didn't know where he was. (but certainly some of his staffers did). When you see a situation like that among the well-to-do, you know that the wife is mad at the husband for screwing around but isn't ready to cut down the big money tree yet.

The difference is that among the Democrats, there would be rallying around the malefactor, or if he were coming out as gay, they'd have an actual celebration. Among the Republicans, the guy gets kicked out. Sanford has given up his top position, and soon we'll also see if he resigns as governor. NOTHING like a the democrat party at all.

The next thing is that claim that Sanford's whereabouts were unknown. Naaa.... a few staffers were aware, but I think Sanford will keep quiet about that in order to protect them, and he'll take another hit for dereliction of duty. Don't forget it was the staffers who first announced where Sanford was, and that he was OK. They're the ones who told him that his absence had attracted attention and he had to come home.

Take home lesson: NOONE expects any form of honor or fidelity from a Democrat. Those guys are supported and praised when they have extramarital affairs (and that DOES include Obama), while the Republicans are excoriated and punished for it.

While the Republicans continue to disappoint with their insufficient resolve against Obama, the family values difference between the two parties is still fairly visible.

You're absolutely right! No Democrat has ever had his career destroyed for an extramarital affair. Well, except for John Edwards... OK, his career was already pretty much over anyway... Gary Hart... Eliot Spitzer... Brock Adams... Jim McGreevy...


OK, so there are Democrats who get smacked when they get caught, but Republicans get smacked around harder than the Dems do, right?

Well, except for John McCain, who cheated on his injured first wife and eventually married his mistress. And then ran for president last year, and has been in the Senate for 25 years or so.

Oh, and Sen. David Vitter, who has a thing for hookers and diapers, but retains his senior Republican positions in the Senate and is a lock to be the GOP's nominee for his seat in 2010.

ummm... and Rudy Giuliani, who cheated on his first two wives, and even used public money and policemen to carry on his affairs (including having cops walk his mistress' dog). But Giuliani regularly appears on Fox and other networks as a national Republican mouthpiece.

Oh, and Newt Gingrich, who got his first divorce in 1981, after forcing his wife, who had helped put him through graduate school, to haggle over the terms while she was hospitalized with uterine cancer. And in 1999, he was caught in an affair with a 33-year-old congressional aide while spearheading the impeachment proceedings against President Clinton. But he's everywhere on the news, he's definitely a force in the GOP, and a lot of people are talking about him as president in 2012.

So, you're right. The Democrats celebrate their sexual indiscretions, unless they're ruined by them... And the Republicans kick their canoodlers out, unless they don't...

Damn, that whole argument seems to be breaking down somewhere, doesn't it?
