Is this really happening.
CNN projects Elizabeth @colbertbuschsc, sister of @stephenathome, wins Dem primary in #SC01 special election. GOP primary too early to call

Not that, this:
Per AP, former SC Gov. Mark Sanford has clinched a spot in the GOP runoff. With whom, we do not yet know. #SC01

A Sanford-Colbert Busch #SC01 matchup would make some great material for The Colbert Report coverage I suppose.

to the full extent allowed by law.
This just goes to prove there are low information voters in both parties. Can’t believe idiots would put Sanford in the running after his political self-suicide. You know? Forgiveness doesn’t mean you have to let these people into public service again. It means they can go on with their lives in private.
Would you rather have Teddy Turner, son of uber-anus Ted?
So my choices would have been tweedle dee or Ted Turner’s Son?
Whilst I think Ted Turner is a globalist progressive, I’m not quite easger to condemn the son for the father’s sins quite yet. Sanford or Turner. those were really the only people that the GOP could find to run for that seat? It seems to me that the GOP autopsy report was aptly named. These people are dead to logic and reason.
There were 18 in the race altogether, including a few state legislators, a former sheriff, and various other politicians and newbies.
Turner finished well back at 5th or 6th, I think, around 5% of the vote. He did have a fair amount of advertising, most of the field did not.
Yes. In a heart beat.
Another of the Colbert siblings worked for a prestigious Los Angeles law firm for some decades then went to work for the radical LACity Attorney’s office, from which he attempted to plunder the deep pockets of successful businesses.
Sanford was one of the best congressmen during his previous time in office. He kept his promises not to take PAC money and to self-limit to three terms, never bought a house in DC and spent most weekends at home in SC. In addition, he is one of the few voices for real reform.
His personal failings are well known, but the Democrats never seem to discard their talent over such things, do they?
Bostic, his likely runoff opponent, was a big-spending County Council Chairman who received more than half of all his donations from a single family in Kentucky.
The Democrats have nominated Stephen Colbert’s sister (she doesn’t pronounce it KOL-BAY-er, btw) and the Greens have a couple of usual idiots, but this is a solid GOP district.
“Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.” – George Washington
“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”
– Benjamin Franklin
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” – John Adams
Sanford may have been a good congressman, but he was lacking in moral principles, which our founders considered REQUISITE to a functioning Republic. His time has come and gone when his moral principles decayed.
We are in dire need of principled leaders who shun corruption.
“We are in dire need of principled leaders who shun corruption.”
And so your answer is Curtis Bostic?
What a joke!
Our GOP Elites at work!
(Unrelated — I must be out of the loop: what happened to the thumbs up/down feature on this blog?)
Dr Ben Carson on Hannity “I like Rand but I may run too” (Video):
Yeah, I miss the thumbs up/down feature too. Professor?
I envision some cost savings here. If elected Sanford and NJ Senator Bob Menendez can both fly on the same plane to Puerto Rico.
Paul, Sanford allowed himself to fall in love with a woman not his wife and tried his hardest to hide it. He is morally weak, not corrupt. If the people of the 1st CD are willing to forgive his weakness, so be it. It is their choice.
As for Sanford being morally weak but not corrupt.. he is both for abandoning his post and hiding. Any catastrophe that may have occurred while he was AWOL would have created a major problem since many actions require the governor’s authority. Yes, there is a chain of succession, but is “AWOL with secret South American hootchie mama” listed as a reason for the next in line to assume the governor’s authority? He also used pubic money for his private shenanigans – is that morally weak or corrupt?
It becomes clearer how South Carolina keeps a Lindsay Graham in office.
Could you be more specific about these “catastrophes” which he could not address from anywhere with phone service?
Sure, as soon as someone explains how disappearing even from his own staff makes phone contact possible.
