More Republi-CON Family Values

UPDATE V: Sanford should blame his monkey ancestors. Read The New York Times, Politicians Are Primates Too.

UPDATE IV: From the internet:

"New GOP Amendment to the Constitution: marriage should be between a man and 2 women."

"This is all Clinton's fault. If he hadn't been unfaithful, then these repubs would not have felt it was OK to do it too. -- signed RNC"


UPDATE II: Is Pensacola Joe the party's next Clinton? I ask because he was in town last week promoting his latest book, "The Last Best Hope," and one newspaper article claims Joe is a "political genius." The article, in a paper that claims there are no sacred cows, states:

“Joe walked away from politics to spend more time with his sons, who were 10 and 13 at the time.

Joe has since been approached to be run for both the U.S. Senate and Florida Governor, but has chosen to stay away from politics.”

Is that true, or is Pensacola Joe a sacred cow?

I ask because lord knows that the Republi-con party needs some help after the last week in which the party’s family values propaganda joined the fiscal conservative farce in the trash can of political fraud.

All hail the Republi-con family man.

UPDATE: The South Carolina governor has a future writing Harlequin romance novels. In an email he sent to his Argentina love he wrote:

"You have a particular grace and calm that I adore. You have a level of sophistication that so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night’s light - but hey, that would be going into sexual details."

More bad news for the party wandering in the wilderness. I once asked who the Republi-con Clinton might be who would save all those phony-baloney, cult-like Republi-cons. In a sense, there are now two contenders.

Last week it was Nevada Senator who had a affair with the wife of a good friend and senior staffer.

Now the head of the Republican Governors Association, a Bible-quoting social conservative who called on Clinton to resign over his affair with Lewinsky (saying of Clinton, "He lied under a different oath, and that’s the oath to his wife. So it’s got to be taken very, very seriously.”) admits, in a tearful stream of consciousness, to loving the magnificent gentle kisses, curved hips, tan lines, and erotic beauty of a woman not his wife. Read the Washington Post, S.C. Gov. Sanford Admits to an Affair.

The article says that as a South Carolina Congressman, in 2000 he cast the lone "nay" vote more times than any other member of the House except Ron Paul. He harbored presidential ambitions and was on the Republi-con short list for 2012.

Some think Republi-cons are suffering an identity crisis with the collapse of the Republi-con ideology, but I know that Republi-con family values, like claims of fiscal conservatism, are just all cheap political talk.

Can you say hypocrisy again?


Is it time for Republi-cons to to apologize for putting us through the Clinton impeachment?
