SC-1: Winners And Losers

The special election for South Carolina’s first congressional district is (at long last) over. The saga that began last December – when S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley tapped U.S. Rep. Tim Scott to take Jim DeMint’s seat in the U.S. Senate – ended Tuesday night with a resounding victory for former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford.

In fact this race – pegged by most polls as a toss-up – wound up being a near-landslide victory for the Palmetto State’s “Comeback Kid.”

Let’s assess the fallout, shall we?

WINNERS

sanford winners

Mark Sanford … He was given up for dead after his dramatic fall from grace in 2009 … and two weeks ago he was down by nearly 10 points in this race. Somehow, though, Mark Sanford survived. Given his sky-high disapproval ratings there is absolutely no way the “Luv Gov” should have won this congressional seat. But a crowded GOP primary, a fiscally liberal “Republican” runoff opponent and a strategically inept Democratic campaign conspired to send him back into elected office.

Nikki Haley … With her predecessor sucking all the oxygen out of the state’s political media for the last four months, absolutely no one has been writing about Nikki Haley’s disastrous first term in office. Haley got a small bump in popularity with her choice of Tim Scott for the U.S. Senate, but the real benefit to her was bringing a national circus to town that helped take the spotlight off of her chronic incompetence.

Anthony Wiener … He probably won’t win the New York City mayoral race, but Wiener has to be encouraged by what he saw in South Carolina on Tuesday night.

Ron and Rand Paul … The libertarian godfather and his son endorsed Sanford at a critical moment in this race, helping shore up his libertarian flank and infusing his cash-strapped campaign with some much needed resources.

Thomas Ravenel … the former S.C. State Treasurer (and reality TV star) is another scandal-scarred ex-politico who has to be encouraged by Sanford’s win. Will we see another “second chance” headline in the not-too-distant future?

Maria Belen Chapur … Sanford’s mistress-turned-fiancée was the undisputed star of the governor’s victory celebration. Decked out in a black Donna Karan dress and three-inch peeptoe sling backs, the tanned, tone Argentine bombshell stole this show.

FreedomWorks … Eager to get back on the winning side of the ledger after getting pummeled in a race in Louisiana, the grassroots conservative advocacy organization went all in for Sanford when he needed support the most.

Charleston and Savannah Television Stations … How much money was spent on television ads in this race? A whole helluva lot, people. And these stations got paid.

Teddy Turner’s Third Wife … Blair Turner, whose ascension to the title of “contemporary Mrs. Turner” made some headlines on this website during the crowded GOP first district primary, was another stunning beauty who attended Sanford’s victory celebration in Mount Pleasant. Gracious, gorgeous and built like a brick barnyard, she could teach politicos (including Sanford) a thing or two about how to deal effectively with controversy and criticism.

***

LOSERS

pelosi

Nancy Pelosi … The Democratic House leader wasn’t on the ballot in South Carolina, but Mark Sanford made the race a referendum on her (or at least a cardboard cutout of her).

Elizabeth Colbert-Busch … Seriously, who the hell invites Democratic lawmakers like Sheila Jackson Lee and Jim Clyburn (both borderline socialists) to campaign with her in a district Mitt Romney won by 18 points? Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, that’s who.

South Carolina Democrats … All of the stars aligned for the Palmetto State’s perpetual minority party in the first district – and they still couldn’t get a win. Had this race been the close call most pollsters were anticipating, we’d have given S.C. Dems an “E” for Effort. As it is, they get another “EF” – for “Epic Fail.”

National Democrats … Yeah … that campaign to take back the U.S. House of Representatives appears to be off to a rocky start.

National Republicans … The GOP establishment in Washington, D.C. was begging for a reason to bail on Sanford, who has never been a “team player” inside the Beltway. So when trespassing allegations raised by Jenny Sanford started to gain traction in the national media – and when Sanford started flailing in response to these allegations – the GOP seized the moment and pulled the plug on him. Oops.

Pollsters … Everybody missed this race. Everybody. Internal polls, public surveys and cell phone samples all predicted a contest that would go down to the wire. The photo finish never materialized, though, leaving a lot of researchers with a lot of egg on their faces.

Jenny Sanford … The former first lady did her best to torpedo her ex-husband’s campaign – and failed. And while she’s still very popular in the first district, her bitterness apparently doesn’t trump its ideological roots.

FITSNews … This website went out on a limb and endorsed Sanford over a fiscal liberal in the GOP runoff election last month. However we refrained from endorsing him this go-round after he went squishy on his free market moorings during a recent debate. That was absolutely the right thing to do in light of Sanford’s disappointing debate tack, but several of his supporters made it clear to us that FITS was not “sufficiently loyal” to the conservative candidate in this race. Ah, the presumption of entitlement.

Teddy Turner’s Second Wife … One of the handful of “Republicans for Colbert-Busch,” her effort to score some cheap political points at her ex-husband’s expense didn’t pan out as planned.

Yea, well if you want to feel like a “winner” you can claim that you helped him win the primary, which basically handed him the election in that district anyway.

Personally, I think you and most of the GOP voters will again be disappointed in Sanford.

You’ve been duped again.

But then again, as Mike from the Beach stated…they both sucked.

The choice was between dumb and dumber.

So there are no “winners”, there could be no winners in any scenario…there are only losers…and that is everyone that isn’t a politician, gov’t worker, or crony capitalist in SC unfortunately.

As the British say, “Keep calm, and carry on.”

Democracy, in its current iteration/definition is being uncovered as wholly corrupt and insufficient.

This is needed. My kids/grandkids won’t be pissing on my grave because they know I’m not a willing participant…just a victim.

That being said, I’m not sure man will ever “progress” from the current philosophies of gov’t substantially.

Democracy today is nothing more than legalized theft and coercion. It has morphed into the very thing the founders were afraid of, tyranny of the majority.

As such, there is no reversing the course via “peaceful” means(elections, etc.).

It’s going to have to play out….hopefully the end result/mess won’t be too long in misery or too bloody.

Why don’t you run for office and see how great it is to be a ‘sleazy’ target of the MSM and websites that prefer a ‘creep show’ over leadership, brains, honesty and principles. Politics is all about the ‘reality show’ mentality and no one in their right mind wants to be associated with corrupt, elected officials or government at any level – Look at your own list for evidence of the problem.

Too bad for those who pay taxes and still believe that it is an individual’s responsibility to take care of themselves – not the ‘government.’

In my opinion it was a choice between someone who would be guaranteed to stay in office via the power of incumbency, versus someone who in all likelihood would not survive their next reelection. I also think Sanford is far worse a breed of politician than ECB ever could be. To me, the choice was clear, let ECB take the seat by default and kick her out when someone better runs.

I do agree that most people will be disappointed in Sanford given enough time, though.

Even though Sanford did this for himself, hope the collateral winners were his sons who deserved to feel renewed pride and happiness. Of course they may also see this as the same distraction and ego-driven behavior that took him away from them in the past. Fortunately they are older now and can reason out his personality disorders and his entanglement with fiancee. Shame the kids end up being the custodial parents in these matters.

While that sounds romantic it’s not too realistic. Sanford would have to convince Jenny that he is again the man she married and that would be hard to do with him singing Chapur’s praises. Besides, it’s not emotionally or physically healthy to be around him. Ever since mention was made of her absence, Chapur has been on the scene reminding him and his peeps that she is in the picture. Unless it is all a farce. They seem headed to the altar and a Tahiti honeymoon! Look for the upcoming photo spread!

Will –
I typically don’t comment, however Jason Miller, Joel Sawyer, and the Sanford campaign team should be listed in the winners column. Turnout was over 30% in a special and they were able to rev up a turn out machine and show how worthless polls in Congressional specials really are.

I have never heard a “man” with a foot/shoe fetish go on about it before Folks.
It’s way creepy.

Speaking of:

“Thomas Ravenel … the former S.C. State Treasurer (and reality TV star) is another scandal-scarred ex-politico who has to be encouraged by Sanford’s win. Will we see another “second chance” headline in the not-too-distant future?”

Whatever happened to “MMMAARON” which was pulled from this site within a couple oh hours (at most)? I thought the contents were spot-on.
