Media Sad Face: ‘Sanford victory could spell trouble for House GOP leadership’

Posted by on May 08, 2013 at 7:53 am

Because a humiliating defeat for Democrats is always bad for the GOP, right?

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) is heading back to Congress — and that may not be good news for House GOP leadership.

Sanford owes party leaders nothing, as they refused to spend money on his campaign in the closing weeks and held him at arm’s length for much of the race.

He’s also a vocal — and stubborn — fiscal conservative, and will be sworn into the House at a time when GOP leaders are battling to control an unruly conference.

An unruly conference? We suppose diversity of opinion and thought is a bad thing in Washington, where Democrat lapdogs do as ordered of face the wrath. But Mark Sanford showing a little independence is bad or something. Ironically, the twerp who authored this drivel just two weeks ago told us how badly damaged Sanford was. How’d that work out?

    And just think, she was on the ballot twice. Can we say she suffered two defeats?

    So does this mean that all the leftists spouting this line have finished scraping their “Question Authority” bumperstickers off?

    The bigger question was the attempt by the liberal media to destroy Sanford with this bogus trespassing charge, just just happened to pop up after he won the primary, but before the general election.
