The Right Man For The Right District

11 May

Mark Sanford and the White Voters Whom He Can Still DupeI’m trying to find a good message in the Mark Sanford disgrace. Thank you, Betsy Woodruff and Kate Nocera.

1. A Republican won in a Republican district – duh!

2. Retail politics – and Sanford is a talented retail pol – trumps negative campaigning backed by outside-the-district money.

3. Elizabeth Colbert-Busch needs to ditch her bus, but at least she did better than Mitt Romney.

Yeah, OK, but Sanford is a sleazebag and a deficit hawk! And, South Carolina’s First District re-elected him.
