Mark Sanford Pulls A Clint Eastwood …

Eager to get his “comeback campaign” back on track in South Carolina’s first congressional district, former Gov. Mark Sanford has taken a page out of Clint Eastwood’s book …

Although instead of talking to an empty chair, he’s debating a life-sized cutout of Nancy Pelosi – the ranking Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives and (more importantly) a polarizing figure who polls terribly in the Palmetto State.

Sanford is employing this visual device in an effort to call attention to the fact his Democratic opponent in next month’s special election – Elizabeth Colbert-Busch – won’t debate him.

“My opponent continues to run a stealth campaign, avoiding public appearances and refusing to commit to televised forums for the benefit of 1st district voters,” said Sanford. “Since Elizabeth Colbert Busch refuses to articulate her views publicly, we are left to draw inferences for what she stands for on the basis of the groups that have made substantial monetary investments on her behalf.”

How much have national Democrats pumped into the first congressional district race? More than $1 million, Sanford said in a press release.

“We know what Nancy Pelosi stands for – she is anti-Boeing, pro-stimulus, pro-Obamacare and supports raising the debt ceiling,” Sanford said. “But because my opponent is refusing joint appearances  to answer questions about where she stands on the issues, all we can assume is that she is going to be a reliable vote for the Pelosi-Obama agenda, were she to be elected.”

That’s accurate … for all her attempts to distance herself from Washington, D.C.’s liberal elite, Colbert-Busch is exactly what Sanford says she is (and maybe worse). Nor is her personal life drama free, it’s worth noting.

Meanwhile for all his flaws (exhibit A: his chronic narcissism) Sanford was a reliable pro-taxpayer vote during his first stint in the U.S. Congress from 1995-2001 – which is why we endorsed him for the GOP nomination for this seat over fiscal liberal Curtis Bostic.

Of course Sanford’s lack of judgment and perpetual compounding of his own mistakes continues to dog his candidacy … and could very well cost him this election.

In fact last time we checked, he was costing himself this election.

Will a debate with a cardboard cutout of Nancy Pelosi be enough to stabilize his campaign? No … but at least Sanford has finally figured out that it’s time to stop dumping more water into his boat.

The tortured-wonkish-policy diatribes on here are written by Sanford, is my guess. The low-brow Gossip (underwaer-drawer police) is FITS…
The trending current event comments (more rights for child-killing Jihadists) is Mace trying to Kooky-Gen-X, Nuance her way to a GOP Senate Primary win.
Sanford always thought he was too bright to waste time on common, common sense, everyday policy.
He fancies himself as some complex, high-ideal guy, who Shoves it down your throat, and you better swallow it. Because the pedigreed Sanford knows best (as all elitists think that)…and you’re a poor common rube who needs him and his smarts…

Again, my one big issue for all of the Mark Sanford haters is that they support Haley – THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HALEY AND SANFORD with the exception that (1) Sanford is more conservative, (2) Haley sometimes wears short skirts and (3) Sanford has no clue how not to stick his foot in his mouth and tell a good lie and (4) Haley is a much better liar – otherwise one in the same – liars, adulterers, etc. If you honestly voted for Haley, you have lost your authority to bad mouth Sanford. The voters in this entire State are just as stupid as the voters in District 1 when the majority elected Haley and a Repub majority in District 1 elected Sanford.

Mark will live well off the taxpayers for the rest of his life. He has a generous retirement pension and health benefits from the US congress and the state of SC. Not to mention he has a lot of low friends in high places that still owe him favors and will find him a cushy government position somewhere in the Fed/State bureaucracy

Sanford has always had it easy. He has been very good at fooling people and taking more than his share, at our expense. It’s like he’s had a dome around him, and everything works out.
It’s intriguing to see a man of Sanford’s character, good fortune and relative wealth….being denied, like most of us have ahd to deal with.
We covet the love of our families and most of us work very hard for the little we have. It builds character and a respect for justice.

“My Dear Mrs. Katlaurenscounty,
(an interesting name, indeed, however I am not acquainted with any family of that name that I can remember),
When you refer to a Southern Gentleman I am positive that you are referring to me, of course, and I am very much appreciative of your sentiments.
Although we have never met, I can infer from your commentary that you are definitely the finest example of Southern Womanhood. Certainly a lady of the highest order, a budding magnolia with the dew of a Spring morning glisteneing upon your cheeks.
I hereby give to you an open invitation to my humble abode, the Longleaf Tobacco Plantation at the Dusty Crossroads, where the lemonade and mint juleps are always available, and we can share twisted cigars under the oaks.
Very truly yours;

Forwarded message from my good friend Mr. Beaujolis (4th) Buford (3rd) Longstreet (2nd) Smithfield, Jr. —-

“My Dear Mrs. Katlaurenscounty,

(an interesting name, indeed, however I am not acquainted with any family of that name that I can remember),

When you refer to a Southern Gentleman I am positive that you are referring to me, of course, and I am very much appreciative of your sentiments.

Although we have never met, I can infer from your commentary that you are definitely the finest example of Southern Womanhood. Certainly a lady of the highest order, a budding magnolia with the dew of a Spring morning glistening upon your cheeks.

I hereby give to you an open invitation to my humble abode, the Longleaf Tobacco Plantation at the Dusty Crossroads, where the lemonade and mint juleps are always at hand, and we can share twisted cigars under the oaks.

Beau

Like I said Shifty, ROFL!!! The irony!! ‘Budding’ – I wish…my buds bloomed into full fledged giant blossoms some time ago. Dewey glistening cheeks?? These cheeks are too busy flapping jaw for dew to reside…oh you are too much. One of the reasons I love the dialogue (and I get to use up some allowance ;)

He’s suppressing vote with this idiocy. None of us want to see an empty suit with literally no accomplishments of her own win, but she’s less embarrassing than Sanford. So we’ll vote for nobody.

Sanford has a great sense of humor so lighten up and enjoy. Jenny has said that he has a wry sense of humor. The real question is when are we going to see ECB in action? If she gets elected would she be able to handle herself among the seasoned politicians of the House.

Good ol’ John “I’ve got larceny in my blood” Jenrette.
And Rita…..

One thing’s for sure, Playboy ain’ askin’ Jenny or Maria Belen Chapur to pose….ever.

FITS, you should start a SC Corruption CLASSIC feature. Go all old school on ’em. Might I suggest the saga of Charles “Pug” Ravenel and his run for governor,all the while meeting the residency requirements… “in spirit”.

She is in a minority party, that will be an even bigger minority after 2014. She has a little over a year to be there, then she’ll be sent packing when a Conservative takes the seat.
So it does not matter. She’s a caretaker.
Her value is ridding the GOP of the embarrassment Sanford is.

How Wes Donahue makes a living doing this is a miracle. Here is his genius moves:
1) Stupid plywood signs (technically OSB), while they may have gotten positive attention for like a 3 days they backfired because people used the idea to make plywood signs attacking Sanford and they have gotten more press.
2) The BIG Wes Fuckup – Let’s get the the Maria Belen Chapur thing off the table by having her pose for a photo for the press with Sanford on Runoff night. Backfire, apparently this move was so hush hush that they forgot to tell Sanford’s kid’s one of whom has never met her. This in turn pissed off Jenny Sanford (understandably) and may have lead to the release of….
3) Trespassing complaint, clearly it was calculated to try and ignore this ticking time bomb so the last thing you would want to do is piss off the only person who also knew about the incident. By let’s say sandbagging her to youngest kids with an impromptu introduction to her ex-husband’s home wrecking mistress.
4) It’s bad enough to sit back and hope the public does not find out about the incident but to then not be adequately prepared to respond to the controversy is criminal.
5) Then after 2 days of dragging this through numerous news cycles, to come up with a lame ass excuse that turns out to be untrue. Saying he did not want his 14 yo son to watch the Superbowl alone when now we find out that his 17 yo son was also at the home.

Wes, you suck. stick to designing websites and leave strategy to someone who is not a fucking idiot.

Oh, Mark, Where’s Your Violin?

If Ms. Colbert-Busch won’t be debatable,
Why not stand with a woman inflatable?
Take a huff and a puff;
It can’t be too tough.
And you might find that plastic is “datable.”

And this view of Pelosi on paper–
Behind her, is that Belen-Chapur?
Are those Maria’s big feet
Leaving prints in the street
While her rump emits unpleasant vapors?

In Argentina they’re called “buenos aires”;
They’re emitted by gauchos on stairs;
Argentines without means
On a diet of beans,
And Peronists, may fart from their chairs.

Yes, Mark, tho’ some votes you’ll amass,
To most of us, you’re just passing gas.
We’ll be glad when you’re through,
‘Cause Colbert-Busch is not “blue”.
But it’s best that we send up this lass.
