Re: “Another family-values politician gets his due

@Mat catastrpphe

Sure, there may be Democrat hypocrites, too. But typically they are not enacting legislation to trample on the rights of people based on gender, sexual persuasion, etc. It always seems to be a Republican who has fought long and hard to limit someone's rights, that gets caught with his hand under the bathroom stall.

So quite yer stupid yawning and wake the heck up!

Re: “Another family-values politician gets his due

Like how christian conservatives still castigate Bill Clinton for an extramarital affair while simultaneously pulling the lever for avid hiker Mark Sanford.

Smear a turd with a thin layer of trickle-down mythology and a conservative will eat it with a grin.

Re: “Another family-values politician gets his due

'Trapping Bill Clinton with an intern'? Really? I thought you Dems were against "men of power" taking advantage of secretaries and interns. Short memory, huh? But good to see you not blaming White people for God knows what.

Well, at least the Ayatollah Cruz won't be president.

Man, and I thought this was going to be about Dennis Hastert. How could I have made that mistaken assumption? Hmmmmm...

Colonel Sanders maybe.
Bernie? Just there so Hillary has someone to debate so the Repubes don't get all of the press.

Re: “Cherny runs for Congress again, upgrades to Democrat

I happily gave the man $100. I would do it again if he starts to poll well. Any Dem but Sanford. Cherny might not hold Sanford's gross dereliction of duty against him, but I do.

Re: “Cherny runs for Congress again, upgrades to Democrat

From the above article: "In an interview last week, he surprised me with the fanciful theory that Donald Trump is running for the GOP presidential nomination in order to throw the November election to Hillary Clinton. (Yes, you read that right!)"

What unsupported conspiracy theories are you talking about, Mario?

Re: “Cherny runs for Congress again, upgrades to Democrat

Conspiracies happen in American politics. But voicing unsupported conspiracy theories has the net effect of playing into the hands of the right wing--as it feeds a sense of futility that many Americans share re: the political process and political efficacy. That vile cynicism was best summed up in Ronald Reagan's inaugural address--"Government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem." No utterance that I can think of has been more dangerous, violent and destructive in the past 35 years.

Until he can prove his quare notions, Cherny would best be served by continuing to appeal to our better angels and leaving the conspiracies to Alex Jones, stormfront.org, and their like.

Re: “Cherny runs for Congress again, upgrades to Democrat

Cherny sounds like a very good man doomed to defeat, but anyway... He sort of awakens the momentary and whimsical desire in me to return to my former home state & vote for the guy. Here in NC we seem to be threatening to beat y'all in the race to the bottom.

The giant photo at the top of this page should be the subject of the article. How many people now think this is a picture of Dimitri?

Re: “Cherny runs for Congress again, upgrades to Democrat

Roger Pinckney Sanford... Sanford a hero...???.. stole taxpayer money to fund his personal crisis and trips to Argentina. you or I would likely be in jail if we had committed fraud like he did..... As Gov. joined the SC National Guard as an officer without basic training because of his position, and then underwent training and drilling for a medical unit at taxpayer expense "to set an example for his sons" and then quit the Guard when his unit got deployed to Iraq, because he was "too important".....As a Congressman in the 90's Sanford said Bill Clinton should resign the presidency, not because he broke the law, but because he broke his vows of marriage. Did Sanford resign when he broke his vows of marriage? No because he is a self absorbed hypocrite who has failed his country as a politician and as "soldier". Some hero indeed. More like someone who wants to live the good life off the taxpayers. I remember him railing against career politicians, which he now is one.

Re: “Cherny runs for Congress again, upgrades to Democrat

Mark Sanford was instrumental in stopping oil drilling off the SC coast, the only upper tier politician to buck up to the current administration. He is a hero and will my vote forever.

Re: “Cherny runs for Congress again, upgrades to Democrat

Dimitri Cherny is a thoughtful and intelligent man. He's also a great listener, and if you challenge him on a point of politics, rather than argue with you, he'll try to find common ground.

I worked with Dimitri on his last campaign when the City of Charleston confiscated most of the yard signs we placed on highway ramps and at intersections (an expensive lesson well learned).

I believe in Dimitri but more than that : Dimitri is no fly-by-night kook. He is educated and fully capable of doing the job that the office demands. The People of South Carolina have given Mark Sanford more than his share of slack, given his performance. This time, we have a real alternative.
