John Ensign and Mark Sanford - two Republican idiots who will NEVER be president.
In just a matter of weeks we have seen two rising stars of the Republican Party and highly-touted future presidential candidates immolate their political careers on national television.
First, Sen. John Ensign, R-Nevada, admitted to cheating on his wife with a campaign staffer (just like John Edwards). And now we learn that an adulterous affair was at the core of the fiasco surrounding South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford’s disappearing act this week. Which, of course, brings to mind former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s fling with a prostitute earlier this year.
Spitzer, a Democrat, was forced to resign.
Edwards, also a Democrat, was drummed off of the political stage.
But so far, both Ensign and Sanford are acting like they intend to hold onto their seats (as is Sen. David Vitter, R-La., whose name showed up on a prostitute’s client list in Washington).
These guys weren’t just any old Senator or Governor, either.
Ensign was chairman of the Republican Policy Committee, the fourth-ranking spot in the Republican party’s leadership.
Sanford was chairman of the Republican Governor’s Association.
I think Ensign should resign. I think Sanford will be impeached if he doesn’t resign soon.
