I’m finding it increasingly difficult to blame politicians themselves for much of the ridiculous happenings in D.C. After all, they can’t get to D.C. unless they win an election.
As tonight’s special election results in South Carolina so CLEARLY indicate…Americans are the most hypocritical, ignorant voters on the planet. Disgraced South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford won a special election for a House seat tonight. The man went through an incredibly scandalous affair, he used public funds to fly to Argentina to meet his mistress, he lied about his activities, and since leaving office in disgrace, he has had his wife accuse him of stalking.
And of course…he WON the election tonight! Interviews have shown South Carolina voters who didn’t like Sanford’s behavior voted for him because of his party and what it stood for. Hey, after all, it’s REPUBLICANS who try to claim the moral high ground! It’s REPUBLICANS who have somehow garnered majority support from the bible-thumpin’ crowd!
But yet when push comes to shove, the same Republicans re-elect a lying, cheating, disgraced former politician, because of his PARTY and what that party supposedly stands for!?!? Unbelievable.
Yes, Washington D.C. IS a complete mess. But it’s also abundantly evident that the idiots in Washington are PERFECTLY representative of the idiocy of Americans in general.
We have nobody to blame but OURSELVES for what goes on in Washington…
