Mark Sanford and "High Infidelity"

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past week, you're probably well aware that former (and disgraced) S.C. governor Mark Sanford won the seat in his state's first congressional district in a special election against Elizabeth Colbert Bush, sister of comedian Stephen Colbert.

Since I'm taking a break from politics, I'm merely going to share this video by Jack Hunter (a.k.a.: the Southern Avenger). It may be over four years old, but it's still relevant about Sanford's affair in relation to his political career:

Don't get me wrong: Sanford is a sleazy, lying adulterer who took a trip on the taxpayer dime in order to pork his mistress, and as such, he has not right to preach about "family values" or "fiscal responsibility." But to be fair, what politician in American history (or history in general) hasn't had a mistress? And considering he's the most fiscally-conservative politician in Congress, he's better than most of the other politicians in Washington.
