(Fox News)   "The irony now is that Democrats are left to say Mark Sanford's victory is a loss for women. These very same Democrats are putting up a man, Chuck Sheheen, to run against South Carolina's female Governor, Nikki Haley." It's not sexism when WE do it   (foxnews.com) divider line 203

Whoa whoa whoa.... there's a Democratic Party in South Carolina?
 
2013-05-08 11:55:27 AM  
Did Sheheen abandon his elected post to leave the country to cheat on his wife?  I think the "loss for women" angle is pointing to the FACT that Sanford treated his (and his state) like a farking doormat.
 
2013-05-08 12:03:08 PM  
It's the policies of the candidates not the gender, farkwit.

I just love Republican logic.

This is true, insofar as women in electoral politics in SC are concerned. 

However, I note that there's no mention made of the loss for ethics, responsible government, truth, or common sense that this represents. Because Sanford certainly stands for none of those things.
 
2013-05-08 12:17:46 PM  
How about this: Mark Sanford better represents the people of South Carolina because his beliefs and ideologies are more line with South Carolina voters than are Colbert Bush's.

Is that so hard?

Hell, I don't know if it's a loss for women, but it's certainly a loss for the people of his state.  His opponent could have been a dude, it wouldn't have changed the fact that he not only cheated on his wife, he used taxpayer dollars to fly to another country to do it, all while saying he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail.  If nothing else, South Carolinians should be offended that he thought they were stupid enough to buy that one.

This squared. If Phyllis Schlaffly were running against (say) Al Franken, would you say someone was being anti-woman for voting against Schlaffly? Get a brain, moran.

It's a loss for women because Republican policies are incredibly anti-women.

That's way too deep for the mind of Punditus Repbublicanus to comprehend. They're still reconciling how Fire can be Bad when it's burning down a church but Fire Good when cooking steak.

Let the wailing and gnashing of teeth begin!!!!

How exactly do you gnash?
 
2013-05-08 12:47:29 PM  
OMG they really don't get the point do they?

I am so tired of explaining the obvious.  Time for someone else to give it a try.
 
2013-05-08 12:47:30 PM  
What's also true, if you really think about it, is that while Democrats "claim" to be pro-gay, they've run and continue to run many non-gay candidates. It's a stunning and very ironically ironic hypocrisy, one that's almost sickening to contemplate.

They'll never understand that concept. Their only way to reach out to women and minorities is by having token politicians. They think it's the same thing.

Epecially considering their strong performance in recent polling.

Most of them preach about how great gay marriage is, yet then they go and have a regular heterosexual marriage. Hypocrites.

What's worse is that only some of them are even black! WTF? I am shocked, shocked to hear that the party of black people only occasionally has black people on the ballot.

I see it a win for women, he obviously loves chasing them. He even does the crazy for women. Clearly, he's pro-chick

I'm sorry - what does dereliction of office have to do with women?
 
2013-05-08 01:08:37 PM  
Just as a Republican could never win Nancy Pelosi's district, Nancy Pelosi helped Mark Sanford rally conservatives to his side in a very Republican district.

Showing how utterly moronic those "conservatives" are.
 
2013-05-08 01:14:58 PM  
Don't sprain yourselves reaching like that, dudes.
 
2013-05-08 01:15:48 PM  
Conservatives are so so very terrible with analogies.
 
2013-05-08 01:16:59 PM  
The electorate of South Carolina considered a man with a KNOWN tendency to embezzle public funds and not show up for work - not to mention the vast and overwhelming hypocrisy - to be the better candidate.  Whether or not it's a loss for women, it's certainly a loss for the state.

It would have been a loss for MEN if Sanford had beaten a man.
 
2013-05-08 01:17:32 PM  
Hahahaha, they're expanding their "NO U GUYS ARE THE RACISTS" argument to gender now?

Even using the "but we have a black in our party" logic.

So running a man against a woman is sexist? lol

I think subby took a few too many blows to the head.
 
2013-05-08 01:18:17 PM  
They do have a point. The best advocates for a policy are often those who would be affected by said policy. That's why you see so many ridiculously wealthy people in Congress; they know what the ridiculously wealthy want, and they're going to give it to them!

Yep. "Sure, our candidate ditched his duties to cheat on his wife in another country (on the taxpayer's dime no less) and lied about his whereabouts, but he's a Republican, and that's all that matters!"

Sanford is scum, and the fact that the GOP gave him another chance invalidates any claim they had to the "Party of Family Values" title. Not that they had any real claim to it in the first place, but this is just yet another nail in that particular coffin.

/Inb4 b-b-but Clinton (who didn't abandon his duties, ditch the Secret Service and lie about his whereabouts, but it's totally the same thing guys!
 
2013-05-08 01:19:01 PM  
Subby, you are a retard.  A f*cking Monogloid.  A despicable lying sack of monkey feces.

Your logic is akin to: Cuba Gooding Jr. is an Oscar Winner, so naturally all the movies he stars in are good.

His margin of victory was about 8 points lower than Tea Partier Tim Scott in 2012, so there was at least a small amount of conservative cross-over voting.  Looking back to Scott's race in 2010, the Republican margin of victory in that district is slowly shrinking.

This is bad news . . . for Obama.

/Sorry, had to bring that one back.
 
2013-05-08 01:20:17 PM  
A week ago I watched Fox bobble heads go into tirades about how Anthony Weiner possibly running for mayor was the Worst Thing Ever and that he should be ashamed by the whole Twitter junk fiasco never to show his face in politics again. But Sanford running as a Rep and winning after having an affair using taxpayer funds is awesome.
 
2013-05-08 01:20:43 PM  
its not the gender of the candidate you imbeciles, its the policies they support.

Wow. If only the world were as simple and simplistic as Conservatives pretend that it is. Somewhere, in a parallel universe where pi equals exactly 3, maybe it is.

For real. You'd think that the military folks down in SC would have thought integrity matters.

Apples = Oranges

That sums up the core logic.

Which Democrats said this was a loss for women?
 
2013-05-08 01:23:40 PM  
It's not a loss for women because Colbert-Bush didn't win and is female. It's a loss for women because a republican won. If Colbert-Bush were a man and lost... it would STILL be a loss for women.

What's even more hypocritical is they don't abort  all their babies, yet they claim to be pro-abortion.
