It's not the hypocritical deliciousness of the Mark Sanford adultery fiasco that's so amusing. No, here's the money quote from that article:
Wednesday's denouement came just eight days after Sen. John Ensign of Nevada announced he too had had an extramarital affair.
Yeah, it's a real epidemic amongst the sanctimonious, God-fearing yokels, isn't it?
Sen. John Ensign’s affair creating trouble for other Republicans
The fallout from an extramarital affair between Ensign and Cindy Hampton, a campaign staffer, is threatening to ensnare other Republican leaders as they try to marshal opposition to the Obama administration.
A June 11 letter written by Hampton's husband, published today in the Las Vegas Sun, claims that at least one of Ensign's colleagues, Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., knew about the affair more than a year before Ensign's public confession, but did not act to remove him from party leadership...
Initially, it seemed as though the splatter would be confined to Ensign's political ambitions. After admitting to the affair on Tuesday, Ensign - a rising star among conservatives who was thought to be considering a presidential run in 2012 - resigned his post as the Senate's fourth-leading Republican.
Then it emerged that Cindy Hampton's salary - paid from Ensign's political payroll - had doubled during the time of their affair, which went on from December 2007 to August 2008. Also in that period, Hampton's son landed a $1,000-a-month internship with the National Republican Senatorial Committee - chaired by Ensign. After Hampton and her husband, Doug (also a top Ensign aide), were dismissed by Ensign, the senator allegedly helped Doug Hampton find a job with a Las Vegas airline that is among his major campaign contributors.
So, wankers ... feel free to lecture the rest of us on morals and family values and such. Seriously, take it away. Let me make myself comfortable first, because this should be good.
BY THE WAY, as soon as he's an amoral scumbag and sleazebucket, Republican governor Sanford is suddenly a Democrat:
But you knew that, right?
