ANOTHER UPDATE: Via Pam Spaulding, Sanford’s picture has already been removed from the Values Voters Summit website. That didn’t take long.
Iowa, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts — I blame you for Sanford’s marital problems.
Ha. Don’t forget, Sanford’s right wing allies are trying to “save” marriage by repealing Maine’s new law. It’s probably too late to save Sanford’s.
Mark Sanford is, of course, a right-wing defender of “traditional” marriage. Just two weeks ago, he made it clear that the GOP should not change its views on same-sex marriage. He was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe to talk about unifying the GOP.
Joe Scarborough, led with the marriage issue, asking, “Do you think the Republican party should become more libertarian on the issue of gay marriage?” In other words, should the GOP stay out of the issue. Sanford responded, “No, I don’t.”
This is classic. Scarborough, Mike Murphy and Peggy Noonan trip all over themselves to tell Sanford how great he is. Noonan called him a “respected, popular Republican Governor.”
