    if we did what Sanford did.

    'Human level'? Are you kidding? All that was negotiated in family court, and if it's unreasonable then family court is where Sanford should go for revision.

    Your sympathy is misplaced, in my opinion.

    •  Sanford gets what's coming to him, (0+ / 0-)

      but the tone is all wrong.  What if there were no court order, would he still be full of shit when he said he wanted to watch the game with his son?  His problem is his conduct, not his feelings, and I don't think the idea of wanting to use sports to bond with an adolescent is so prima facie ridiculous as this conversation suggests.  Sanford's problem is his reasons don't excuse his behavior, not that they may or may not be illegitimate.  I'm sorry if you didn't find that sufficiently clear.

        If you want to introduce counter-factuals, don't stop with court orders ....

          it was him randomly walking around the house for no reason at all, I was more willing to crack jokes than I feel are appropriate now.  There's nothing wrong with counterfactuals, except when they don't illustrate a the difference one's  trying to articulate.  He's (a) a republican and (b) lacking in judgment, so he shouldn't be in Congress.  That's enough.
