    really that simple.  SC dissed Jenny Sanford and their children big time, in my opinion.  And while the rightwing generally has trouble with Spanish-speaking people, the Argentinian fiancee was not problem apparently.  She may be part of that GOP outreach to Hispanics that Priebus keeps talking about.

      ...so, all is forgiven in right wing world.  After all, don't the brag about how hot they're women are compared to "liberal" women?  I guess 'cos "not hot" people are inferior.*

      *Rush Limbaugh and Charles Krauthammer apparently get an exemption 'cos they are men, and men can do whatever they want in right wing world

      GODSPEED TO THE WISCONSIN FOURTEEN!

    •  My wife made an interesting observation (3+ / 0-)

      this morning, when I told her about this thread. She thinks Sanford only won by 9 points (whereas Romney won by 18) b/c Republican women abandoned him for his infidelity and hypocrisy, while Rape-publi-scum men may have employed the age-old 'wink, wink, nod, nod' routine.

      I'm not enough of an elections wonk to be able to say yay or nay to my wife's hypothesis. But I wonder whether there were any exit polls that broke down results by gender and party affiliation. Would be interesting to know for future campaigns.
