The race to succeed Senator-designate Tim Scott in Congress got a whole lot more interesting tonight. According to CNN, none other than disgraced former Governor Mark Sanford will seek the seat. Given the governor’s history of taxpayer-funded Argentinian peccadilloes, we’re not sure who told him that this is a good idea, but Twitter was happy to inform him that it isn’t.

Yeah, definitely a great start to a campaign there, Mark.

    Gee, can’t imagine why the term “career politician” is most often used in a negative context. Oh wait . . .

    No. $deity, no. A thousand times “no”. I’ll keep saying it until I’m blue in the face and my fingers are sore from typing.

    Should he get elected then perhaps he could do us all a favor and disappear again only this time take Harry Reidiculous with him and make sure neither of them returns–ever.

    He should come here to northern IL and run. We have no problems with the insane, the feckless or with felons being elected to office.

    Don’t be fooled, he’s just using Congress as a stepping stone to the White house.
